Choooo Choooo.... Look Who's Two?

My baby turned two on Saturday.  He'll always be my baby, even when he's 45! What a sweet boy he is.  We had a Thomas the train party since he loves his trains. He also loves Dinosaur Trains, so the train thing just seemed to work.
On Carter's actual birthday we took the kids to Southpark Meadows for some splash park/playground fun and ate lunch outside.  They had a great time and were tuckered out!  When everyone woke up it was off to Hey Cupcake for some birthday cupcakes - yum!
Everyone came over on Sunday for some real birthday party fun.  It's always nice to have the whole family together.  Just a pleasant reminder of how blessed we are to have family close by.
We had some pizza, Carter's favorite food, and then a yummy train cake made by the ever-so-talented Grandma Debbie!

Carter is a total charmer!  People just fall in love with him.  He gives the best hugs and kisses, and even a fist pump now and then. He LOVES to swim and is really great at it. He can throw a ball really well and loves to jump on the trampoline.  He has a great sense of humor and loves to make people laugh.

Hello Mudder, Hello Fadder....

Kylie has now become the ultimate camper.  I think she's hooked.  She is now in he THIRD session of camp this summer!  First it was T Bar M in June, then Pine Cove in July, and now back to T Bar M.  I am really missing her this time. Kylie really has the ingredients for a perfect camper.  She's brave, fun, energetic, friendly, independent, and confident.  She makes friends so easily.  She's got a type of magnetism about her that other kids are drawn to.  I really think it's because she's friendly, but maybe even more so because she's confident.  Kids that tend to be a bit shy and unsure feel safe around her.  I love how many new kids she's getting to meet.  I can totally see her being a camp counselor some day!  I know these experiences are great building blocks for her future.  I am so proud of her!

 Safety First!

 Silly girls ready for camp!
I mustache you to check this out!

 She got blobbed!
