Oops. I guess I might fall into that category. It's just so fun planning a party for your child. We had some close friends and family join us at a great new play place. And by great, I mean A-MAZING. They had fridges for food, it was new (like 5 days new) so everything was clean and awesome, they provided a room and balloons and helped clean up. They even had ball pits to play in [pre-vomit/pee-infested]. The play area was HUGE and it didn't have holes all over where little tots could fall out-forcing adults to climb up in with their kids. Silas could go through it all on his own. Hardly anyone was there either [except our party] since the weather was insane and it was so new nobody had heard of it.
I made rainbow fruit and veggie trays, ordered some pizza, and Jason helped me make a really fun train cake in the shape of a 2. Silas was enthralled with the play place and loved having all his buddies around him. If only it wasn't so hectic with me prepping, and taking care of Toby- I would have loved to have spent a whole day there [this is in my future].

yay for playnation! [it's actually much bigger than this picture shows and has an awesome toddler area, except, Silas went straight to this big play structure and skipped the toddler area]
we had an upstairs room:
rainbow fruit and veggie platters:
good friends Nathan and Aiden:
It was all so overwhelming for him he didn't hardly get to his presents. We still have a bike to give him [not that he can ride it anywhere at this time of the year, stupid winter birthdays!]
I totally didn't have the time to take pictures of the whole thing and am kicking myself. I had this big plan to take pictures of Silas individually with all his friends or as a group of kids to have as a momento. Totally. Forgot. [Arg]
We're so thankful to have this little bundle of boy with us. How lucky are we? So glad to have shared this day with people we love and who love Silas.
Oh, and because I always gave my parents a hard time for neglecting to take photos of me, the 2nd child, here's one of Toby:
Thankfully he slept for some of the time and was held the rest of the time [hardly cried at all!]
