Kendall turned 2 on January 31st. I've decided I'm only going to do a big party every other year. This year we spent the day as a family doing some things we knew she'd enjoy. Then later that evening we had cake and ice cream with our immediate family.
We started the day off at the mall. Kendall loves loves the silly little train they drive around. She hasn't rode it before because I usually have both girls by myself. Daddy was kind enough to ride with her. :)
Next we headed to Chuck E Cheese. Y'all, Chuck E Cheese is a mad house! I guess it was worse because we went on a Saturday at Lunch time. It was hard to even find a table. They have the big playground of tubes and slides but we didn't let her go up that. We were afraid that she'd get scared or bullied or whatever. And momma and daddy were not going up after her! Michael said next time we'll have to take our Garrett friends with us.
She did LOVE riding all the little rides!
To prove Kate was there also.
I'm not sure how this doesn't qualify as a party. Maybe I need to say that every other year is going to be small and easy. Kendall loves the PBS show Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood so I went with that theme. Since it was right at Supper time we ordered pizza. I got a store bought cake and Michael "had to have" platters (veggie, fruit & cheese). I threw up a few simple decorations and called it done. It was a stress free non-party party.
She loved having Happy Birthday sang to her and "sang" along. Her hat was courtesy of Poppy.

We honestly had the best day. I still can't believe that she's 2! I still plan on doing a 2 year post later this week.
Happy Birthday, Big Girl!
