July 21, we celebrated with a Picnic at the Park and Splash Pad...a wonderful idea given to me from a dear freind. Really, what mom doesn't love a party that has easy finger foods, easy set up, easy clean up, and free entertainment?! Brilliant! We sent each kiddo guest to eat right out of a lunchbox of thier choice. Then after some good eats it was time to play!
Are these two ever up any good when together? :)
Lovin' some cousins!!
After the park we returned home and had a small cake and munchies for those in the family that didn't want to beat the heat at the park. Hope adored having Happy Birthday sung to her. In fact, it just might be the first time I have ever seen her get a tad embarrassed! Once she got the candles blown out we began to cut the cake and she blurted out, "bye bye Melmo." (Melmo would be her name for that red fuzzy guy)
All the festivities must have tuckered our little spitfire out. I found her laying on the floor the next afternoon "cuddling" with her Melmo lunchbox and balloons. What. a. doll.
Happy 2nd birthday my dear Hope. What a fun and wonderful day of celebration! You are a blessing upon blessing in our lives and we are so thankful you are here. Wishing you a year of adventure (as if we need to wish on that one!) MWAH!
Hugs and kiss, Mom
