my little guy turns 2

my little firecracker turned two on July 3rd... sad to say , being the third child... he kinda missed out on the big ,crazy, natzi theme parties that his older siblings have had. Honestly.. we had just finished up with Tatum's ( a month late) and I knew Brigham's was coming up (ten days after Beck's)... plus prepping the house and prepping for baby.. I just waived the white flag and decided.. a two year old could still have fun with a little family party. Our weekend was full of activities anyway.. so we kinda made our Day at the Lake and his first boat ride.. a birthday deal for him. Came home that night and just did a simple party.. with a theme.. but of course! Beckham has been obsessed with "ca-ca" balls.. since about 18 months, so we knew when older brother's soccer season started in May.. it would be ridiculous.. and sure enough- it was! This kid spots a "ca-ca" ball on a sign or in a store and he goes nutz! We knew it would be an easy theme to throw together for his little shin dig.

all his favorite foods... pizza... grapes.. watermelon and chips....

and of course the "ca-ca" ball cake!!

We spread a blanket on our living room floor and the kids enjoyed a picnic indoors!

He was very excited about his cake. And he liked it even more when we sang to him!

Big brother Brigham helped with the candles...

and his sister proudly showed off how much she liked the cake!

and then we celebrated some more with fireworks... and sparklers...

the birthday boy was not enjoying this part of his celebration!.. all in all it was a great time.. simple and so nice for just the family. There wasn't any stress prepping for 50 ppl and getting tons of food and decorations in order.

Now...I am in full party planning mode for Brigham's party which is coming up this weekend. We certainly get our share of bdays around here... and still awaiting patiently for a new birthday to join the crew.

Got less than 3 weeks left til we meet our new addition. We have been keeping busy with the fair, and camps, swimming lessons, cook outs and park play.. (oh and watching several movies as we had to endure an entire week of high 90 degree weather).

Trying to get business stuff wrapped up as well as personal stuff so we can head into the last week of pregnancy , stress free. I am gonna try to catch up with some blog posts here in the next few days too...
