Party like a 2 year old

19 May

Happy birthday to my little Daredevil.  He has made it to two despite every attempt to jump, fall, climb, and run into the face of danger.  Although I had fantastic plans for a gorgeously themed second birthday party, we settled for a “theme” of good food, good friends and good fun out in the late autumn sun.

Utilising a big open common area within our villa complex we were able to have enough room for munchkins to run and adults to relax and soak up the blue sky sun.  I realised how good it is to have a big garden space that is able to be adapted and utilised as an extension to your inside living space.  If we had tried to have the 30 odd people fit into our place it just would not have worked.  While the space is nothing special, there is a lot of potential, and the potential is the best part about it.  It is almost a blank canvas waiting for users to shape it.

It has been a very big day, I’m exhausted and ready for bed, so thought I would just share some of our photos from today.

Time to blow out the candles and go to bed!

      Too much cake left over!!! Would send a piece though I don’t think it would last the trip to the UK! The shirt and tie were specifically chosen by his older sister as his present from her – she was very specific and particular about the clothes, maybe there is a Paris fashion future for her??!!??

      It was a great day! The cakes are a bit of a thing I do for my kids, it’s a bit of a creative outlet, but drives my husband crazy! They get so excited when they see them so it’s all worth it in the end.
