We went down to Austin this weekend to celebrate my niece Zoe's second birthday and it was so fun and amazing to see how she is growing up just as fast as the rest of them. She's not the little cute baby who just kinda sits around and observes everything going on around her that she used to be.
She is a beautiful little girl with a mind of her own and she makes it known. She is growing into a little girl and growing out of the baby stage even though she is so small, at least compared to Cheyenne who is only 9 months older.
We had so much fun at the party, despite the 50 degree weather. It was chilly but of course, the kids didn't notice the cold as much as we did.
I guess jumping on the table benches is a good warm up for all of the playing that would ensue.
There was rock climbing.....
There was some playing on a huge standing see-saw. Yes I was freaking out!!
Then it was time to sing Happy Birthday to the birthday girl. This was what she did while we sang to her. She knew this day was all about her!
Then it was time for cupcakes...Oh how we love cupcakes...at least the frosting.
Do you have any idea how hard it is to take a picture of 4 toddlers? It's not that easy. For some reason, they don't like to stand still. I swear, once they know you push the button to take the picture, they think it's funny to move. But these cousins love each other so much and always have such a great time!
All in all, we had a great time and the next day was present day and Zoe got to open all of her presents (and share them with her sisters and cousin) and then we had some outside fun since it was warmer weather than the day before.
This girl, like all the rest of them, is crazy about her Grandpa. She sees Grandpa and reaches for him every time. She thought Grandpa's hat was pretty cool and had to try it on.
Happy second birthday Zoe! You are growing up so fast along with the rest of them.
I can't wait to go back next month to celebrate Rachel & Claire's 4th birthday. It all goes by so fast!
