Yesterday was the St. Louis Rock 'N Roll Marathon. About 13,000 runners participated and thousands of fans including newborns and the elderly lined the streets to root for their runners. A few weeks past I was in Chicago and cheered on the runners in the annual Bank of America Chicago Marathon. There were runners from all 50 states and over 100 countries. I was one of the approximately 1.5 million spectators. A moment of silence was held before the race began to memorialize and honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. Many of the runners and their cheerleaders wore shirts, shoes, bracelets, or carried banners in support of Boston. In response to the tragedy in Boston, security has been ramped up at similar events throughout our country. Although the presence of uniformed police, undercover agents, and Homeland security was very evident in Chicago it didn't dampen the enthusiasm of the ginormous crowd. Security was also tight in St. Louis this weekend. In addition to the Rock 'N Roll Marathon, the St. Louis Cardinals are also hosting games 3, 4 and 5 of baseball's World Series and our opponents are the Boston Red Sox. So if you plan to attend one of the upcoming marathons or triathlons it is always fun to bring along your fans. The runners are energized by the encouragement of the crowd and how fun would it be to have the little ones wearing personalized tees to cheer on mommy and/or daddy?

Does you little man or little lady love music? Does he or she aspire to be a rockstar? Or, is your little one a rockstar at least in your own eyes? If so, why not have a super rockstar celebration for your kiddo's next big birthday bash? That's exactly what Brittany from Lady and Her Gents did when her son Landon turned two last month. She left no stone unturned when planning Landon's rockstar themed birthday party. She started with a fun invitation to the rockstar party and included everything from rockstar labelled bottled water to rockstar inspired treats. The birthday boy even wore a rockstar birthday boy design from Zoey's Attic and he had a guitar design bib to protect his clothing when eating his rockstar birthday cupcake! Brittany thought of every imaginable detail and Landon's Rockstar Birthday Party was a huge success! Why not check out her blog, Ladies and Her Gents, for more party ideas?
