Well Benjamin turned 2 on June 4th but we didn't have his party until Saturday, June 7th
(which was the planned date - which ended up being perfect because of the hand, foot and mouth
virus and not being able to be around anyone until he got better!)
We are so excited that we had lots of his little friends (and their parents) to help celebrate his birthday ...
along with my parents and sister!
A Few Funny Things (caught on camera!):
Lili (isn't she a doll!) trying to get into the dumptruck with Benjamin .. still in the box!
Benjamin couldn't blow out any candles ... because they wouldn't light!
The only time the WHOLE entire day that the wind actually blew!
AND the nice finger prints in the cake!
OH ... and might I add that the beach ball ended up looking more like
the Pepsi symbol than a red (PINK!!) , white and green beach ball...
Abby and Emma having a blast in the sandbox!
Abby, Benjamin and Lili playing with the squirting beachball!
The group picture ... where you can see - 3 kids (including Benjamin) ... crying and trying to get up as quickly as possible!
Jonathan trying to help Bridger into the squirting ball... no go!
And one of my favorite pictures: a typical 2 year old party ...
We had a great time and we were glad that the EXTREME heat held off until after the party! I was a little bummed that we didn't get a family picture ... who forgets to take that?? But at least we were all there!
