Brody Bday!

Some of my favorite crafty bloggers always show pictures of their kids' birthday party supplies and favors so I'll follow suit and share the details of Brody's 2nd Bday Party!

We had the party at Chase Palm Park so the kids could enjoy the Santa Barbara Easter Egg Hunt. We have been practicing 'egg hunts' for a couple of months now so Brody got it right away! He took off and collected a ton of eggs and consumed a ton of chocolate. He even shared some eggs with other children. Very sweet!

Then we and the other 25,000 SB children who were participating in the hunt headed off for the play ground. It was a bit manic but the kids were having a blast and that's really what it's all about right?
Kevin set off for the carousel park to set up for the party. All 25,000 kids were headed to the merry-go-round about that time too but fortunately, they got right in line and didn't take over the lawn area where we were.

We bought this really rad bubble machine (the green thing in the pic below) at Coscto a couple of weeks ago and it was a HUGE hit! We had no idea! We hung out on the lawn, played with bubbles, ate food, opened a present or two and just enjoyed being around friends and other babies. It was great!

After lunch, cake and bubble-enjoying we all headed to the carousel for a whirl. By this time the line was gone and we were the only ones on it! Most of the kids loved it and the pictures came out great! The party bags (hand crafted by Rah Rah) included a money egg for the carousel plus some candy, a toy, bubbles, and play-do.

At first I was thinking, "Man. Who's idea was it to have a morning birthday party!?" but afterward I couldn't be more pleased. It was bit crazy but then it was nap time and we had the whole rest of the day still. All-in-all, a great day and a great celebration.

Brody loved playing and hunting and eating too many sweet treats all in one day! He also loved having so much of his family here. Thanks to Grandmama, Mor Mor and Papa, and the Mathi3 for making the journey. And to our dear friends the Wolds and the Hulseys for making the drive. We love you all so much and wish we had more time with you.
Happy Birthday, Bubba. You are such a prince and a such a joy to know. This year is going to be great!
