Saturday evening was our family celebration beginning with a trip to our favorite place for dinner--Sweet Tomatoes--with Grandpa Dave & Grandma Laura.
After filling up on salad, pizza, muffins and ice cream we headed over to Chuck E Cheese's for some play time. Elise did NOT like anything that moved, so Grey used most the tokens. But she ran around like crazy getting onto everything in the place.
(notice my mom comforting Elise behind Grey--she freaked out as soon as it started moving)
Opening gifts from Grandpa, Grandma and Aunt P & Uncle Joey
Monday morning--her actual birthday--we let her open our family gifts when she woke up. She got a baby set with a carrier, stroller, high chair, bottles, etc. She & Grey have been playing with them non-stop. I really hope it gives them their own baby to play with when the little guy comes!
That evening we had friends and grandparents over for cake and ice cream and to let the kids jump in the bounce house.
And the cake that caused the biggest disaster including a broken mixer whip flinging icing all over the kitchen, dripping and melting icing onto the floor and down the dishwasher in the hot kitchen, trying to cool the cake & icing in the the fridge and freezer and getting it all over, messing it up and having to redo a few petals. Whew! Glad I finished it...
What a fun time to celebrate her second birthday. We adore her!
