Alex {almost} turns two!

The weather has been so mild and nice the past couple of months, that often you'll find a group of us mom's & kiddo's from church at the park on Friday mornings. We pack a picnic lunch, meet at around 11am and let the kids do their thing. Alex will turn 2 at the end of the month {yikes!} and Katie was 3 this month, so we decided to do a "birthday playdate" last Friday for both of them. It really was no different than any other playdate, except that there was cupcakes and they wore birthday hats.

I decided to make Elmo cupcakes since all of a sudden Alex loves Elmo. Apparently it's some sort of "right of passage" for two year olds. Since we were going to have an Elmo cupcake playdate, we decided to wear red. {Although "we" have no idea why we're wearing red, much less what "red" is.}

Even Levi got in on the action. Unfortunately for him, his shirt says "Hug Me". :)


When we got to the park, Katie's mommy gave Alex an awesome birthday hat!

...which he actually wore for quite a while performing various activities.

Like sliding...

and running...
and riding cars...

Hi Levi!

 ...and, or course, while eating cupcakes!

After a while, we decided to just hold our hat instead.

After cupcakes, we had fun playing with birthday noise makers!

 A couple of sweet friends even brought us gifts.


We had such a fun morning playing and visiting with our friends! We stayed well past naptime, but it's not every day that you almost turn TWO. 


  1. He's getting so big! I cannot believe our little boys are "almost" 2!!!! :)

  2. He's adorable! <3 The cupcakes look awesome, too!

  3. You did such a great job posting the story with the pictures ! I wish mom & I were could have been there to enjoy the day with you! What fun to have great friends and great memories together
