It was a small family party this year, many family members were busy (summer is so difficult to get everyone together) but the small group turned out to be great for a two year olds party. The kids made their own 'Mickey ears' using black construction paper & black headbands from the dollar store. Owen served as a great little helper & made sure that everyone completed their craft & helped the kids when they needed :)
BBQ lunch of hotdogs, burgers, chips and veggies.
Mickey Mouse arrived just after lunch! I had found a woman that had various costumes for birthday party rental & she was great to work with. She answered my e-mails quickly & arrived right on time :) Some of the kids cried when Mickey arrived and others didn't show any interest at all. I was happy that Grayson enjoyed seeing Mickey & wasn't too scared of him.
Grayson & Mickey! Most of the kids took turns getting their photo taken with Mickey :) I missed getting a group photo though!
Mickey danced with Owen & I'm sure Owen would've preferred not to participate, but he was a good sport & didn't complain :)
Checking out his 2nd Birthday cupcake! by this time Grayson was exhausted. I wasn't even sure if he'd try his cupcake, he sat there staring at it for the longest time.
eventually he tried it! & loved it. He kept handing Mickey mouse his garbage lol
A quick game of pin the nose on mickey! it was a great toddler birthday game - even though I'm sure we had a few cheaters on our hands ;)
I love this photo of Grayson - you can just see how tired he is at this point! doesn't even care that he lost one of his Mickey ears during the fun party!
Present time! Grandma & Grandpa gave Grayson his own Mickey Mouse luggage for his trip!
Cool new 'cars' sunglasses for his trip too - from Aunt Tirza, Uncle Adam. Kian and Bridget.
Here are some videos from the party! It was a fun day from start to finish & Grayson slept great that night! Happy 2nd Birthday baby boy! We love you so much :)
