I still can't believe our baby girl is 2. And it's even harder to believe that Troy will be 1 in a month! We had a rockin' birthday party for Brooklyn with 8 other 2 year olds. Fun times! Fortunately we had great weather, so we broke out the slip n' slide (one of B's presents) and let the kids slide away. Well, actually, Erik slid with them. He says he was just helping the kids, but he was seeming to really enjoy himself. And he even got an ab work-out doing it! We had lots of Brooklyn's favorite foods: gold-fish, watermelon, pretzels, Pb & j in cut-outs, chips, cheese, water (she LOVES water!), and Ritz crackers. She had a blast playing with her friends, and especially opening presents. She made out like a bandit too! Spoiled little girl! But she was of course gracious, at least for a 2 year old. We also played a couple of her favorite games: Simon Says, and Ring-around-the-Rosie. The kids really got into it! I of course forgot to hand out the gift bags at the end of the party (I KNEW I'd forget!), but I'm hanging on to them to hand out at play-group. I'm sure their parents will be thrilled, especially with the sweet finger paints I put in there! She LOVED reading the cards. Really!
She looks like she's having a LOT of fun.
