Party Time!!

Mr. Charlie turns 2 this Wednesday!!



We celebrated 2 sweet years with a special Choo Choo Train Birthday Party.

Just a note: I took all of these pictures like this......



....(with little Walker all papoosed in) so, that's why some might look a little crazy.


GETTING READY


Did you know that there is a helium shortage? Crazy.



DECORATIONS


Top: Happy Birthday sign for Charlie (it was VERY windy), Train book for everyone to write a message for Charlie, Balls to play with in the open field beside the picnic shelter,
Middle: Welcome Sign
Bottom: Crayons and Play dough for the kiddies (even though my dad enjoyed the play dough more than the kids), Cupcakes and Balloons, Cupcake Toppers



BOXED LUNCHES


Since we had the party at a park, I thought boxed lunches were the way to go! We had chicken salad sandwich and peanut butter and jelly boxes. (Plain peanut butter sandwich for Charlie). Also in the boxes were chips, a train favor cookie (that slightly resembled a train), a fruit kabob, a Wet One, and a mint.



THE CAKE


Left: Charlie chose to forego his cake and dug in to a cupcake.
Right: Cousin Ande is always eager to lend a helping hand. And Charlie added some special spit to the back cupcakes while blowing out his candles.
Bottom: Cutie pies eating some treats.



GUESTS




After eating and singing, we headed down to catch a ride on the train!



And had a great time riding the train all together.




KIDS ONLY!!



With a few extra tickets in hand, the kids took a ride on the boats.


We had a fun time celebrating Charlie's birthday! The weather was absolutely perfect and the sun was shining bright.

We love you, Charlie!!

This isn't all you'll hear of the little guy's birthday (of course). More to come on Wednesday.


This picture is so adorable. Charlie and Paige (Born 2 weeks apart)

So cute! Perfect way to enter the terrible twos ;) I love the box lunch idea! And my favorite photos are the one of him stuffing his face with a blue cupcake (Get it!) and of course that last completely adorable photo of the two little ones holding hands.
