Since it was Easter we had the table set for a lovely Easter brunch and the around the lovely table were jungle themed decorations.
Being that he is only two I don't think C truly grasped that it was Easter AND his birthday. When he came downstairs in the morning the house was decorated for his party and he was more excited about that than he was about hunting for a basket of goodies!
In fact he was so captivated by balloons hanging from P-Nut's swing that he didn't even notice his Easter basket hidden right next to him!
He finally caught on and loved what the Easter Bunny had brought him.
Even Baby Sis got in on the action!
Our guests arrived around 11:00am. All of C's grandparents, his aunt and his uncle. Brunch was delicious and we incorporated all of Little C's favorite foods. The whole family pitched in and brought something which we were really grateful for. The menu included:
- Baked eggs with spinach and mushrooms
- Smoked salmon pizzettes
- Shrimp cocktail
- Blueberry muffins
- Fresh fruit
- Roasted breakfast potatoes
After enjoying our food it became apparent that the Birthday Boy was getting a bit fussy and tired. We tried in earnest to get him to take a nap knowing it would be for his own good. But with all of this family around the last thing he wanted to do was sleep and miss even a second of the excitement. So no nap was had and the little man kept right on trucking.
We moved on to the presents and all I have to say is our son is one lucky kid! His grandparents, aunt and uncles are very generous and he received some very cool gifts. Including a new sandbox for the back yard! He loved scooping up the sand but he did not care for having sand on his feet!
Next up was cake and ice cream! You guys, check out the cake my sister-in-law made for C...
Could that be any cuter?!?! My SIL is the best and one very talented baker!
Birthday Boy approved!
After cake and ice cream it was time to stretch our legs and walk to the park for even more fun.
As I said, our day was perfect. Hubs and I were beaming with pride over our two-year-old and seeing how happy he was and how much fun he was having all day made our hearts swell.
We all went to bed early that night, wiped out from the fun. Hubs and I fell asleep knowing that we had one more special treat in store...
That will be tomorrow's post. ;)
