Birthday Boy!

Ty celebrated his 2nd birthday this past Friday, hard to believe he is 2 already. We tortured him first and took him to Portrait Innovations and got his 2 year old pictures and Gabe's 4 year pictures taken. They actually both did a really good job and it was much less painful then last year for their 1 and 3 year pics. Here are a few of our favorites. After pictures we headed over the mall and let the boys play in the play area for awhile. Ty only tried to escape a few times. Then we headed to the food court and Chick-Fil-A for lunch. We then went and picked up our pictures and headed back to Ames. When we got home the boys took naps(actually all of us took naps:) and then headed to Hickory Park for Ty's birthday sundae. He loved them singing to him and had a huge grin on his face the whole time. He even blew his candle out on the first try much to our surprise. After supper we went back to Grandma and Grandpas so Grandma could pick out her pictures and they gave Ty his present so he one to open on his birthday. Saturday we headed over to Grandma and Grandpas to get ready for Ty's party. Mawdsleys brought some sweet corn and we had a great summer meal. Andrea made this great train cake for Ty, who liked it so much he grabbed the funnel off the top before we could blow out candles, he loves his trains! He was rather frustrated with the present opening this year as he wanted to play with each thing he opened instead of going on to the next present. After presents we did cake and ice cream and after the excitement of blowing out his candle the night before at Hickory Park he was very unhappy that he had to wait until we finished singing happy birthday, but once he could blow them out he was a happy camper again. Ty never did try out his cake as he was way to busy playing with all of his new toys. He had a great birthday and had so much fun at his party. Here is my 2 year old in his now annual chair picture, even though we still think he is little he has sure gotten a lot bigger then here, here, and here:)
