This weekend was filled with birthday celebrations for our little Doozer who turns two tomorrow – yikes!

It all started on Saturday with a special Lincoln and Mom only trip to Grand Forks. We had to pick up party supplies and groceries but I made sure we had some fun along the way.

First stop, lunch at the Sun Beam Cafe. We shared fresh hummus, veggies & pita, some tasty spring rolls with a delicious peanut sauce and then, for dessert, an apple cinnamon roll with cream cheese frosting.

Afterwards, we headed to the park to burn off some energy. Lincoln made friends with two little girls who were also at the park with their grandparents.

There were bridges to cross.

Rocks to sort.

And ladders to climb, repeatedly.

When we got home I decided to start decorating Lincoln’s birthday cake. Lincoln decided to eat the sprinkles.

Like Aunt, like nephew – right Auntie Christa? 🙂

This morning (Sunday) we started the day with special homemade coconut pancakes with blueberry-banana sauce, fresh blueberries, banana slices and real maple syrup. A special birthday breakfast for a special little boy.

After a quick clean-up, Lincoln and our friend Doug played with the balloons in the pool while Mom prepped the party food.

Balloons!

Then this happened.

Andrew and Doug decided that two big trucks were better than one when it came to removing a tree stump in our yard. I gave them until the first guests arrived for the party to “play”. For the record, the tree stump is still firmly in the ground.

On to the P-A-R-T-Y!

My very good friend and fabulous photographer Nicole lovingly agreed to be the official photographer of the day. She is just starting up her own photography business, True Blue Photography, and captured the day perfectly – thanks Nic!

We kept the party low-key this year and only invited Lincoln’s little friends. It was the perfect day for a pool party.

The birthday boy!

Opening presents.

Airplane!

Tractor!

Time for cake.

Who needs a fork, or hands for that matter.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm, butter cream off of Buzz’s foot.

Lincoln and Dad were all tuckered out after a day in the sun.

So was Glenn 🙂

Thank you to everyone who made Lincoln’s 2nd Birthday a special one! He finished the day off with a Skype session with Nanny and Poppy Hicks so he could open his present from them (interactive Buzz and Woody!). Even though we are so far away at least we have the internet to stay connected – love you lots! note: Eek! I mistkingly wrote the wrong grandparents names the first time this was posted! My sincerest apologies to Nanny & Poppy Hicks! We love you guys!

And remember the tree we planted last year in honour of Lincoln’s 1st Birthday? Here is what it looks like now.

Let him eat cake!

Since Lincoln will be 1 year, 1 week old tomorrow I thought it was time to post a cake-eating video. He was exceptionally clean while eating his birthday cake, and we have had far messier experiences at the supper table – imagine a one-year-old eating applesauce and yogurt without a spoon. I pictured him being covered in icing and chocolate cake from head to toe but I guess we will have to wait until next year.

Despite his cleanliness he really enjoyed his cake. As you will see in the video he was very upset when I tried to take it away from him even though I left some on his tray. You will also see that the other kids were just as upset when I gave it back out of fear there would be none left for them. In the end everyone enjoyed a piece and it all looked the same smothered in ice cream 🙂
