happy second birthday story!
i can't believe story turned two today...the time goes so much faster with the second...we are busy preparing for his birthday party tomorrow. we rented a jumpy house complete with climbing area and slide but of course our yard is a swamp and it is still raining so that is looking unlikely...instead i'm getting a bunch of helium balloons and blown up balloons and we are going to swim in them and throw them at one another (?) this was actually a blast at their cousin skye's second birthday party...seems a good age to play with balloons...we are also providing haystacks (the SDA subculture term for tortilla chips topped with pinto beans, cheese, lettuce, tomato, guacamole and salsa) and i ordered a super yummy and moist tres leches cake from the local mexican bakery. they will write "happy birthday story" and cover the cake with multi-colored confetti. our favors are bags of mixed balls (bouncy balls, rubber balls, squishy balls, hard plastic, you name it)...this photo with his sister was taken at his first birthday party last year...off to get ready, clean the house, put the kids to bed...hope to have lots of photos for tomorrow's post and then i will have posted every day for the month of february! yay!
