Yesterday we had Levi's 2nd Birthday Party. I took so much time and unfortunately money, to plan this thing. And honestly next year, I think I may just let him run around naked in the mud and call it a day! Ha. The Mommy in me who has to plan, create, capture and have everything just right says no to this idea though.
After spending lots of time creating banners, favors, cooking, (or lack there of, thanks to my Mom and MIL for cooking the main courses) but still, I was ready for this thing to start!
Of course, just like any other big day in our lives, the rain decided to make its way to our backyard. After having everything set up and guests beginning to arrive, we were hit with a downpour which involved everyone scurrying inside the house. While I pouted in the shed, waiting for the rain to pass, I said forget it to the whole "By the Campfire" theme, and let Levi run around in a diaper and get muddy. The vision of everyone sipping hot cocoa in their bulky sweaters, and roasting marshmallows by the fire was ruined. Ohio decided to have an 86 degree day and rain out of nowhere. But I did get some shots of the decor, and of the fun Levi and his buddies had throughout his day! My Mom took some photos of the presents being opened and the cake being eaten, so thanks Mom!
We're beyond grateful to have such a big, loving family that showers Levi with so much love. He is the little boy he is today because of all his family that shows him joy, laughter and guidance.
Thanks everyone for being apart of his big day!
He is officially 2 on Tuesday. :( / :) I'm not sure how I feel about this. My little boy is growing so fast!
