For Wes’s 2nd birthday, we celebrated just us three with all of Wes’s favorite things! Staring with pancakes for breakfast. I assure you, he was much, much happier with this than he looks in this picture.
Then we headed back to Frying Pan Farm Park for a morning with the animals. Wes is very into roosters right now. I think it’s all because there’s a rooster that cock-a-doodle-dos about every hour in the produce section of Wegmans. It’s a really big deal. We spent most of our time with the chickens and the small tractors, but if you asked him about what he did at the farm he’ll tell you we saw cows. The mind of a child is such a curious thing.
These are tiny, brand new piggies!
“Hi Roosters!” “Hi Chickens!”
“Daddy here!” “Daddy closer!”
Then we came home, lunched, napped, had a chocolate chip pumpkin cookie snack, and opened gifts!
For dinner we went to our favorite Mexican restaurant because Wes loves chips and quesadillas.
Also limes, it’s kind of weird.
Rounded out with ice cream and chocolate sauce.
And if ice cream weren’t enough we quickly ducked into our neighbor’s house after dinner for a little pumpkin pie and another candle picture.
It was a fantastic day and a great celebration! I’m still not sure I believe I have a two year old though. The first year of life crawled by, but this second year flew. Thanks for all the joy you bring, Wes. Happy birthday!
