I know this post is nearly a week late, but it's been a busy week over here. It's Golden Week which means a week of holidays for Y, but a busy time as it feels we need to take advantage of the holidays and do lots of things. Also Y's parents have been staying with us (which is an amazing help), but again it seems like I should be spending time with them, not on my blog. But, enough excuses, on to the party!!
It was a really lovely time. Six families (including us) celebrated the day. There were seven kids - one aged three, but all the others were two or very close to it. It got pretty wild, but they seemed to have fun.
They played trains (of course).
They watered flowers.
They jumped on the play mattress and then on a dad.
And they just sat around, talking and playing with the adults.
Y and I made a balloon banner in Thomas colors to string across the living room entrance.
It was quite popular with the kids and parents. I used the tutorial linked above, but instead of twine and a regular needle, I used yarn and a crochet/knitting needle.
There were of course lots of snacks - sugar cookies, oatmeal cookies, and marshmallow pops.
We did the piñata at the park. I had nothing to be afraid of; when Thomas got busted open, K cracked up!!
It was a tad on the strong side, so all the moms and dads got a turn at whacking it as well.
And of course there was cake.
It was my first real go with marshmallow fondant and I don't think it was awful - in fact I was a tad proud of it. I'll post more about the cake tomorrow, hopefully.
There were also a few cupcakes that were left untouched.
And that is K's 2nd birthday party in a nutshell!!
