Birdy’s Birthday- Round 2


Saturday was Birdy’s birthday party with my family. Mom, Dad, Aunt Cynj, Aunt Jen and thier kiddos were all able to come and play at our playground and have a party.  It was so much fun for the cousins to get together and play with each other in a space big enough for them to all run in.

The menu included yummy chicken salad sandwiches, grapes, veggies and dip, awesome potato salad from Aunt Cynj and chips and salsa made by Grandpa (well, the salsa, not the chips). 

My favorite part were the birthday cupcakes. They turned out waaay cute if I do say so myself:


They were chocolate-chocolate chip cake with peanutbutter fluff frosting– super yummy.  I also used regular canned chocolate frosting to get the half-and-half color effect.  I got the idea from a great book I ordered called “Hello Cupcake“. It has tons of easy and super-cute cupcake ideas and instructions- I highly recommend it.

Anyway- back to the party. The weather was great. The wind picked up, but it just made it easier to fly kites!


The kids also had lots of fun swinging, sliding and playing on the playground:




Then we all went to our house for pup-cakes and presents!  Birdy chose to eat her pup-cake like her cousin Gracie- “Look Ma, no hands!”


Birdy got a cute princess plate, cup and bowl set  and some wildlife cards from the Maughan cousins, the Wren cousins gave her a baby parrot that makes noises and that also has a bottle. Grandma and Grandpa gave her a big Dora house that she and EJ have literally spent hours playing with- mostly peacefully.  Aunt Kate and Uncle Matt gave her the perfect “noisy toy” a star that has Dora characters that talk. It is loud. And very popular.


A good time was had by all. Now she is a big two-year-old girl!  Here is one more for Aunt Kate:
