wordless{ish} wednesday: parker + presents.

last year we went all out for p-ray's birthday.  a bbq, friends, family, decorations... all of it!  it was a blast & i love that we did it.  this year we went for a much more tone-downed approach... we did cupcakes, presents {yes, that's christmas wrap} & just the three of us.  our san diego vacay was a pretty big celebration of him turning two {our last big trip while he's free to fly!} and i don't think his big day was forgotten by any means, i just think the next huge birthday party will be when he's old enough to pick the theme & invite his own friends... so, maybe next year?  haha.

i just can't believe the day has come & gone & i am the mom of a two year old.











it's exhausting being two.

  3. what a sweet picture of Parker and Sam. and I'm with you on the first big birthday party (I just posted the pictures a bit ago - I got a little out of hand with it. haha) but I won't do it up that big again until Ruby's big enough to ask for a theme. and you're right - that'll probably be when she's three so I better enjoy next year off! :)

  12. Wow, big boy Parker! Happy Birthday! We actually did the same exact thing-- had a big blowout for the first bday and then just went on vacation and did a low key celebration for the second one. I don't think he really knew the difference anyway, but I think we would definitely be busted if we tried that again next year ;)
