Birthday Party #1

On Saturday, we celebrated the boys' 2ND Birthday with a party. We did a Thomas The Train theme

and bought the boys a bounce house so that we could entertain all of the toddlers in the back yard. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate. We had torrential rains, thunderstorms, hail and really cold temps.! So, we backed our cars out of the garage, blew up the bouncy house for the kids and stayed indoors. I was so thankful to have the help of our family with decorating and set up because the boys were so excited and into everything.
We were trying to keep the bouncy house a surprise until the party started so it was very difficult to keep the boys contained.
They wanted to run around with their balloons
And wanted to swipe the icing off their cupcakes (they haven't had many "sweets" in their lives so this was a real treat!)

Our friend Amanda, her mom and the triplets were our guests. They came dressed for the occasion in their train outfits - striped overalls and conductor hats. It was so cute. Even Amanda was dressed up!
The boys LOVED the bouncy house. I think the adults loved it too!
I was very proud of my boys. They shared their new cars very well with Grayson, Andrus and Liam.
We brought the toddler picnic table in the house and decorated it so all the boys could eat together. They looked so cute together!

Having fun with presents
And a Thomas pinata

HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY BRYCE AND DREW. Mommy & Daddy and your family and friends love you SO much!
