Birthday Party Saturday

Last Saturday was a busy day for this household.  After Evan's soccer game, we had to eat a quick lunch and pick up two birthday presents because Evan and Brody got their first birthday party invites of the school year.  This was Brody's first birthday party with a school friend.  It reminded me of the first birthday party Evan got invited to at about the same age.  Luckily, the parties were at different times so Mommy could take them both.  Evan's party was first at Adventure Landing just down the road.  He was excited about the prospect of playing putt-putt again, but unfortunately, it was raining a little and not very nice outside so we just enjoyed the indoor games.  We did get vouchers for two free games of putt-putt or another outdoor activity so we'll have to go back soon.  Brody's party was at My Gym which seems to be a favorite for toddler birthdays.  It was so cute to see how much Brody was recognizing and playing with his little friends, especially his girlfriend!  Both of their friends were friends from last year.  They both had a very good day.

Guess what we had just eaten for lunch.  You guessed!  Of course, he didn't mind eating another piece.

Alex had a lot of candles to blow out.  There was even a sparkler on the cake.

Brody and birthday boy, Sammy, tried out the ball pit.

And Brody lasted like 2.8 seconds.

I love this shot!  He saw his old teacher from the 1 year old room and ran to give her a big hug.  It is so strange that all last year, he was really attached to his other teacher until the end of the year when he started following Ms. Christina around everywhere.  This year when he sees her on the playground, he will stick to her like glue.  Haha!

I think this was what he wanted.

But then it got a little too crowded for him.

He loved the little maze they set up.  It is amazing what fun can be had with just a parachute and a tumbling mat.

Yay!  He made it through the maze.

He loved this little tunnel.

Oh how cute!

 photo Brody14_zpsbee9269d.jpg
And sweet too!

 photo Brody15_zps529068ca.jpg
I love when he lays on his tummy with his face propped on his hands.

Brody's girlfriend, Sierra, also loved the tunnel.

Brody tried to walk on the long swinging bridge.

But he wasn't too sure about it.

Sierra and Brody enjoyed rolling on the floor together. 

 photo Brody20_zps970b0179.jpg
There they go!  He would follow her, and she would follow him. 

 photo Brody21_zps5542948a.jpg
I love this one that looks like Brody is just watching her with his head resting on his hand.  Do you think he likes her? 

 photo Brody22_zps3e521cf5.jpg
Silly boy!

Then they sat right beside each other for the little puppet show.

The little alligator song is always a hit.

Evan and his pal, Sebastian, enjoyed a little fun in the pool and eating cupcakes of course.  I also remember Sebastian loved watermelon and probably ate a whole one that day!

  1. Sounds like a really fun day. And I love knowing that I'm not the only mom who waits until the day of a party to get a gift. ha! Both places look like a lot of fun. I LOVE Brody's face in the ball pit. Priceless picture there! Evan looks like he had a really good time too. He seems like such a happy guy all the time.

  2. I love the ones of Brody with his head propped on his hands, both in the tunnel and when watching Sierra. I also love watching toddlers "be in love"! Ha ha ha!!! Rachel has her infatuations too :) Both those parties look like a lot of fun. And I can always eat more pizza too!

    1. Toddler infatuations are hilarious and so cute. Just this past Friday night, Brody saw Sierra when we were out to eat, and he immediately went up to her table to see her and just "showed off" for her and her parents. I wasn't even there to point her out to him, but he recognized her when he was with his daddy. They blew kisses to each other. :-)
