Get Fired Up, Henry's 2nd Birthday Party!

Last Saturday we celebrated Henry's 2nd Birthday with friends and family and it was such a great day.  I really have to thank my mom for all the cute decorations and help with setting everything up because I know I couldn't have pulled all of this off at 37 weeks pregnant.  Henry had so much fun that day and seeing the happiness on his face as he played with all his friends and new toys and made the exhaustion all worth it!

For lunch Ryan grilled burgers and hot dogs and we kept it easy with fruit and chips for sides.  We also kept the cake simple and had firetruck cookies for dessert.  We had a little difficulty with the cookies and unfortunately they didn't show up until the middle of the party.  We were thankful they did arrive finally and were able to hand some out to the remaining guests.  They were definitely a hit though and really delicious!

We had so much fun with the photo booth from Henry's first birthday party that we had to bring it back again this year.  Lots of fun pictures were captured here late in the afternoon ;)
We also incorporated a candy bar for guests to take as favors.  We had trouble setting this up beforehand because it was hard to keep Henry out of the m&m's!  
And of course a party would not be complete without a little sangria... 
And Firemans Blonde Ale... :)
After presents we all gathered around to watch Henry blow out his candles...
A little family photo booth action :)
This boy partied hard all afternoon and did not want to even sit down to eat. Ryan and I barely even saw him!  He was in pure heaven and loved playing with all his fun new toys.



 We are so thankful for everyone that came and celebrated spoiled our sweet boy that afternoon. It was nice to be able to catch up with family and friends as well.  Once everyone had left and we managed to get the house semi-cleaned up, the birthday boy finally hit a wall and crashed.  Can you blame him?? I'm pretty sure this was one of his best days yet :)
