Audrey’s Second Birthday: Part 1

We celebrated Audrey’s second birthday today. It was a GORGEOUS day out – which she shouldn’t get used to because it’s never 60 degrees in early March (or anytime in March) in Wisconsin! IMG_1142

After going to church, we went to lunch to Chili’s, came home and put Audrey down for a little nap. IMG_1150 While she was napping I pulled out her presents, the house was already decorated (thanks to Daddy-o, the night before). IMG_1165

I did a little yard work, and waited for the Grandparents to arrive.

IMG_1163We decided, for the first time ever, not to do a party with our entire family, only because Audrey really doesn’t like a lot of people at one time. It tends to over-stimulate her and get her overly excited and anxious. Yesterday, when Tim came in with some balloons and the kids got super excited, even that sent her into a tizzy…. I knew then we made the right decision. IMG_1148

Grandma Lex and Papa Luke arrived soon after Audrey woke up from her nap, we spent some time outside, playing with bubbles and chalk on the driveway. IMG_1181Audrey LOVED the bubbles, she kept squealing and showing everyone her bubble wand. IMG_1188

IMG_1189We spent a good 45 minutes the girls (including mom and Grandma) doing bubbles, and the boys (Treyton, Papa Luke and Daddy-o) playing basketball nearby. IMG_1192

IMG_1191I got a lot of cute pictures of Alexa running in the bubbles…. the kids were so pumped to have such beautiful weather… and I can’t blame them - you really do feel like a new person!! IMG_1205

I think the best thing about this birthday, is that the Grandparents actually got a chance to spend time with the kids, usually they are surrounded by ALL the kids and it’s hard to spend one-on-one or one-on-three time. I think they had fun….  IMG_1256

I thought this was a cute picture of Tim and Treyton doing huddle time!
