Saturday was a day full of party-hopping & celebrating. For me at least. In the morning I hopped over to Ann Arbor to attend a Bridal Shower/tea for my soon-to-be Sister-friend. It was a fabulous shower (well-done to her friend who planned the event), and I had a great time getting to know some of her family & friends (and therefore getting to know her a little better). BUT...I forgot my camera. Left it sitting on the counter. Which means I didn't get a single picture. Sad day.
Thankfully, Lucas remembered to take the camera with him to Cousin Cuppycake's Party (which is where I hopped next)! Because I would have cried if I didn't have any photo documentation of her turning 2 (especially since we missed the party last year...).
The party was outdoors & there was a fabulous pool which the twins couldn't resist playing in before we put on their suits...
Soon there were cups involved...
And then we decided the prudent thing was to just put on their suits & let them get in!
Cuppycake with her cupcakes.
Pretty soon it was present time!
note: this was not our present. I somehow took a picture of (I think) every single present she got EXCEPT for ours!
During cake & presents Ryan and Allie stayed busy & barely seemed to notice (which made me happy because they couldn't have the cupcakes!)
Ry-guy stayed with the other boys in the pool.
Allie hit Nana up for some bubbles.
Pretty soon, however, Cuppycake became less interested in un-wrapping & more interested in playing with the toys. Allie was there & ready to step in and help!
Sweet Baby D (herself close to leaving babyhood & stepping into toddler-dom), was there. But somehow I didn't get to hold her. Not once. I just took pictures of her (like this one) from afar. And you better believe a missed opportunity to hold my niece makes me pout :)
Ry-guy didn't spend a single minute (aside from eating) away from the toys! He swam, climbed, slid (slided? slode?), and had a ball :)
