Celebrating Our Lil Loves

This afternoon we celebrated Alayna AND Ella's 2nd birthday. We kept it really simple this year by just including the grandparents. We started off at the cemetery before making our way over to Hager Park for some dessert. At the cemetery we "tried" releasing two lanterns into the sky but the wind and dryness were NOT in our favor and we didn't need to be "THE people" who started a fire at a cemetery...so after a meager attempt at lighting one of the lanterns we decided to bag the idea. We did end up (although accidentally) releasing a balloon into the sky anyways so it was all good!!! (We had bought a balloon for each of our lil ladies that said "Happy Birthday Princess" but right when we got there one of the balloon decided to take off. (It somehow got off its string). And we almost lost the second balloon when Mason gave the that balloon a good swat. But momma's cat-like reflexes saved the day balloon)!!!

Our lil family!!!

  1. Love the lantern idea. I was trying to find some for Brooke and Alexcyn's birthday too. Bummed it didn't work for you though. LOVE,LOVE, LOVE that you have that cutie in your arms this year as you remember your girls on their birthday.
