2nd Birthday Party: Family Edition (lots of pics!)

This is a bit of a picture heavy post, but hey...a proud mama's gotta do, what a proud mama's gotta do!

I wanted to share some photos of our quiet, little birthday celebration for the kiddos. It was very understated as we were trying to avoid exposing them to a lot of germs, but still an occasion worth celebrating!


First of all, the kids would like you to know that balloons are AWESOME!

Hanging with our cousins!
Cousin Marissa and Ellie (I didn't get a photo of Cousin Toby...sadness.)

Aunt Sarah and Cousin Aly

Pizza, Cupcakes, and Homemade Ice Cream!
Ellie and Abby

Elijah and Caleb

Sean and I decided to keep the stress level to a minimum for the party, so we ordered a few $5 Papa Murphy's pizzas and called it good. Very good, actually! Our family loves Papa Murphys! And then we are lucky enough to have the best ice cream makers in the world as Sean's grandparents! They make the most delicious homemade vanilla ice cream...ever. period.
By the way, I LOVE this photo I took of Sean and his grandma, Twilla!

 Fun new toys to play and grow with!
Elijah and Abby

Ellie and Caleb

 Abby and Mommy                                      Daddy and Ellie

Awesome new superhero lunch boxes!
(these boys are going to grow up to love all the same things as their Daddy!)

 And because sometimes there just aren't words to describe the utter excitement that comes with a milestone this big:

    1. We did! And we can't wait for our big birthday party this summer!

  2. That is an awesome picture of Twilla and Sean. When I first glanced at it I thought it was my Mom. I have many fond memories of the pounding bench and all of the wonderful things that can be done with that little hammer. It looks like fun times. Congratulations quads.

    1. Thank you!

      I told Sean we definitely need to save that photo of him and Grandma. It's perfect!

  3. great photos! :)
