we had a small and simple birthday party for lion’s second birthday. we invited everyone to join us at a local park, next to the river and a playground.
it was perfect.
we found a picnic table next some big ol’ shady trees and set up our party.
there were carrot cake and chocolate lion cupcakes.
rainbow fruit kabobs.
beautiful handmade pinwheels made by dear hubby. inspiration from HERE.
balloons for all the kids to take home!
colourful bunting flags quickly sewn up by your truly. see instructions HERE.
we had flowers from our backyard.
drinks sitting in a bucket of ice.
signing happy birthday and paljon onnea!
we ate all the goodies with goodie friends!
and lion was spoiled with lots of wonderful new toys and gifts!
and, lion was the recipient of lots of special birthday hugs and kisses!
lion’s birthday was a success! it wasn’t nearly as emotional as i had suspected, although i did have a few good sobs in the days leading up his birthday. and, as usual, i got a lump in my throat when singing paljon onnea; i am such a sop sometimes!
