Now that I have finally gotten my camera cord down to Mobile, I can share birthday pictures with everyone! My Little Dude at his second birthday party:
You can see the pure joy Little Dude is having-seeing him so happy made all the water mess so worth it and actually enjoyable to clean up. He had SO much fun and I am so glad we got to have so many of our dear friends and family (and so many of his dear little friends) over to celebrate!
The neighborhood boys playing in the little house I got for free. Even though it was a huge pain to clean up, it was well worth the elbow grease!
Some of the decorations and presents. My parents did great with the decorating-they had balloons everywhere! Little Dude loved playing with them all week long after the party! Though I told people not to bring gifts, as you can see that didn't work and we got tons more as the day went on. Little Dude loved them all, thanks, guys! By the way, don't I look cute?
Our family, Bill, Little Dude, Me and JR (in my sling, sleeping)
We had our back yard turned into a preschool water play land, with multiple pools, springlers, slip n slide type things, balls, play houses, swings...it was so awesome to see all the kids playing. Little Dude LOVES water, so we had to set up the water play. I think it was a big hit and I finally made use of all the extra towels I own.
Yes, there is a naked kid in the background...really, we all know it's not a party until somebody strips...
Blowing out his candles-one that said "2" and one that was a car from CARS. And his birth picture and 1st birthday picture are set up too. Where did the years go? Sigh.
