a celebration of two years!

Oh! My little Everdeen is turning two tomorrow!  I don't think I will ever look at birthdays quite the same after having my own baby.  I told Martin that maybe birthdays should coincide with Mother's Day...after all we played a very large role during that special day...no? ;)

Last weekend we held a little party for our sweet girl. We started the celebration at the swimming pool...it was ten o'clock and already way too hot outside.  Everdeen just finished another round of swimming lessons and boy does that girl LOVE to be in the water! That afternoon we had our closest family over for a small get together at my parents' home.  Hotdogs, hamburgers, gold balloons, and an amazing polk-a-dot cake (thank you Nana!)...everything a two year old could want :) 
That would be my husband's cup...although he doesn't need to tell me how awesome he is 
A new table and chair set for her new big girl room!
Parents of a two year old...eek! We could hardly snatch a picture of Everdeen.  Apparently when you are two, you are much too busy to be bothered to have your picture taken...
