Holy crap, people. Bug is TWO. There are moments when I can’t believe that he’s been in our lives for two whole years already. Then, there are moments when I feel like he’s always been with us. There are moments when he still looks like a baby. Then, there are (increasingly more) moments when he looks like such a big kid. Those last four sentences couldn’t have been more cliche. Sorry.
I think that Bug had a pretty darn good birthday. Lucky for him, his birthday fell on a Saturday. Actually, he could really care less at this age what day his birthday falls on. We started the day by letting him open gifts from family. His big gifts were a T-Ball Set and a Basketball Hoop. Bug is a big fan of both.
For his party, we threw his two main loves into one… a sports themed pool party. (I almost wrote poo party. Ha.) I was super excited to make football, basketball and baseball cupcakes for my little man. Bug was also a big fan of these puppies. **Side note: buttercream frosting is TOUGH in hot, humid Florida. That’s why it looks so darn shiny. Argh.**
We had a few of Buggy’s little friends over to our community pool, where we grilled out, swam and played in the fountain area. Hubby set up a little area with the basketball hoop, golf clubs & t-ball, plus every ball that we own.
We had a football pinata, which was awesome at first. Bug totally got that you took hits at the football with a bat. However, Bug totally did NOT get that the football was going to bust open. That was very upsetting to him. I don’t have a picture of him crying when the football got destroyed, but trust that he was in tears. Poor thing. That was not the highlight of his day. He did enjoy the m&ms that came out, though.
We ended the day with a good, long nap, followed by more gift opening, playing in the sweet airplane tent from Scary Uncle Adam, dinner & the Lion King. I’m tellin’ ya… pretty much the best 2-year old birthday ever.
