Splish Splashing Birthday Fun

Well, Saturday was a hit. My baby turned two with a bang. Add Image




It was a GORGEOUS day. In mid-July in mid-Mississippi it's rare to have a day that you can stand the sweltering humidity, but this was one for the record books. Sunny with a nice breeze - a high of only, yes, I said ONLY 86 degrees.

We had a slip and slide, two baby pools, water guns, water balloons, and of course the huge blow up water slide...

...which my dear husband couldn't help but try.




I hit the slide myself after the party wound down, but rest assured, I captured no pics of that. My husband wants to get one every weekend now. I promised I would rent him one for his birthday if he really wants me to. That is, if he wouldn't rather have pony or train rides. We'll see what he's into closer to time. :)


And of course the day wouldn't be complete without some sweets. I couldn't have been happier about how these cupcakes turned out.



And no, I didn't make them. We all know how that would have turned out. They are from Cakes & Candles in Ridgeland, for all the locals. I've ordered from them before and have never been disappointed. Every time I go to pick something up, it's so much cuter than I had hoped.



We also had Bop's. Again, for you locals, you know what I'm talking about. Only the best frozen custard on the planet.



Like I said, the day was a hit. And well deserved for this special little lady. She's been such a blessing to our family with her sweet, loving personality and her hilarious facial expressions. I love her so much and as sad as I am that she's already two, I wouldn't have it any other way. These two years have been so much fun and I can't wait for the rest.

Happy Birthday, my baby!
