We just celebrated Nick and Alli's 2nd birthday! We had a swimming party at the Broomfield Rec Center and then came back to our house for pizza and cupcakes. Alli and Nick love swimming and one of their most favorite foods is pizza. I think they had fun at their party - not to mention the presents! I took pictures at the pool, but they didn't turn out so well - so no swimming pictures (sorry Courtney - I know you wanted everyone to see you in your swimsuit, ha ha). I decorated the house before we left for the pool and they pulled the streamers down at least 3 or 4 times. It was a little frustrating, but since it was their birthday I tried not to get too mad.
The funny thing about 2 year-olds is that they are content to open one gift and play with it. It took a little coaxing to get them to open all of their presents, but eventually they did it. Nick is so excited to have a truck full of blocks, a wagon, puzzles, and a books. Alli loves the wagon too, and her coloring toys, farm animals, puzzles, and books. Thanks everyone! Nick and Alli have been very well entertained all week!
We had cupcakes with sprinkles and fish candies for dessert. This was my first attempt at trying to decorate cupcakes and it didn't turn out so bad. It was kind of fun actually and I think I'll have to try it again. The most important thing was that Nick and Alli liked them!
