Phew, I’m finally getting around to writing about B’s second Birthday. What a crazy, fun-filled weekend we had!

Friday started out by letting Ben eat what he wanted all day. What does a 2-year-old choose to eat on his day of birth?

Breakfast- fruit snacks and chocolate milk

Lunch- Jamba Juice

Snack- fruit snacks!

Dinner- more fruit snacks (seriously), milk, chips and a couple bits of quesadilla (I had to get something in him)

The rest of the day was spent running errands and getting things together. Our parents and Ben’s god mom arrived Friday night and the celebrating began.

Saturday was the big day and I woke up to clouds. The whole party was planned for outdoors and I did not have a back up plan. Luckily, they went away pretty early and we had gorgeous weather the rest of the day.

Everyone pitched in and started the food, set up tables and monitored the blowing up of the bounce house.


Ben had the bounce house to himself for twenty minutes and just bounced his little heart out. He was already exhausted by the time his friends got there!



The kids got to play in the bounce house, play structure and with all Ben’s outdoor toys we brought out.



My parents and in-laws managed the BBQ and brought out the most delicious Tri-tip sandwiches. Yum! That was followed up by cake and an appearance by our own personal Woody.


Woody was courtesy of Ben’s grandma. There’s nothing he wouldn’t do for his grandson!

I can honestly say, we couldn’t have asked for a better day. The weather was gorgeous, Ben didn’t get sick, no friends had to miss due to illness, the food was delish and people really pitched in to help. Like I said before, we view Ben’s birthday as a time to celebrate getting through another year and to thank every one for their support and loving our little man like we do. Thank you!


This was the only decent picture I could get of Ben. He refused to sit still or smile. He was just too excited!


  1. Happy birthday, Ben! BTW, your dad in the Woody outfit is great!

  2. Thank YOU for such a wonderful day with Ben and all our friends. We had so much fun! And I just love the last picture of Ben- he looks so grown up!!

  3. Cute photos. Sounds like a great day for Ben and everyone. Love the food menu Ben chose on his birthday. Madeline's would be doritos, doritos, and more doritos. Adorable shirt by the way- Madeline is in LOVE with TOY STORY too! We watch it at least 3 times a day!


I love hearing from you, thank you!
