Super Hero Birthday Party

Last week we celebrated Tatum's fourth birthday with a Super Hero party that he's been asking for since the summer.  I had capes and masks to decorate and a caricaturist which the kids loved being drawn.  I kept the food simple and got it catered from one of our favorite go to restaurant's and Tatum requested a cake with a picture of him on it, cookies and cupcakes.  We tested out Derek's projector from Father's Day for a movie on the deck and after the piƱata had cake and sang "Happy Birthday."

Fall This & That

We haven't made it to as many Penn State games as we'd like to this fall but we had a blast at the White Out vs. Auburn, College Game Day and a big win!

Before the weather turned cooler this week we spent a lot of time outside - which we still do for now! Also since Tatum's birthday we have been playing a bunch of rounds of policeman/bad guy outside too!
Teddy is very much into real food and can't get enough of it.  It's fun to watch him grow and really get into new things!
We are deep into wedding season and have been having a blast celebrating old friends as they enjoy their special day!

Tatum's Fourth Birthday

On Saturday our biggest little guy turned four.  This is such a fun age - he has so many interests and activities and tons of personality.  The highlight was a police motorcycle that he's been asking for for months as well as bad guy stuff and the Amazing Spidey and Friends toys.

We enjoyed the day playing outside, lunch on the deck and then a family party that night.  His request was pizza so we had Tatum's Pizzeria pizza bar and cake as well as opened more fun presents.

Beverly Hills

 

On Saturday we made our way up to Beverly Hills for the week.  We got there in time to trade off spots at the spa, spend the afternoon at the pool then relax until dinner at the Polo Lounge.

Sunday we had no plans other than to enjoy a cabana by the pool for the day.  We kept it easy at the hotel and got Dan Tana's take out that night after feeding Tatum at the pool.
Monday we went to the West Village Inn for a little wine tasting and charcuterie and then came back to the Cabana Cafe for lunch, a long pool day and got the boys ready for bed and time with a babysitter while we went to the Waldorf Astoria rooftop for drinks, Craig's for dinner and The Polo Lounge for dessert.
Tuesday we started off at the playground, went to Casa Vega for lunch and did the pool for the rest of the day.  
Our last full day we went over to Rodeo Drive, lunch at Il Pastaio, a long pool day and then dinner at the Polo Lounge and dessert back in our room since the boys had fallen asleep.
Our flight wasn't until later on in the day on Thursday so we spent the morning relaxing and got to the airport early to have a nice meal before our long flight home.
