A cupcake party! We had a cupcake party! Well, not really. Quinn turned two last week and we celebrated over the weekend. It was supposed to be a train themed party, but somehow it turned into a cupcake party. Probably because I personally have been obsessed with cupcakes over the past few weeks. In the weeks before his birthday, I brought home cupcakes a few times. On his actual birthday, we had cupcakes. At his birthday party, we had cupcakes. Cupcakes cupcakes cupcakes. Who cares about trains when you’ve got cupcakes?
Let me back up a little bit before I get to his birthday party. On his actual birthday, we celebrated with my parents, Nick’s parents, Nick’s sister, and ate pizza and cupcakes. Quinn opened tons of presents…he was spoiled! But the winner of the evening was the firetruck I bought on Amazon.com the night before and had overnight shipped. Ha! Great spur of the moment idea on my part!
Quinn also had a birthday thunderstorm roll through. That has never happened to me, ever, being a December baby. Lots of snow…but no rain.
On Saturday, we had Quinn’s birthday party. His closest friends came and everyone had a blast. It was hot that day so the boys played outside in the sprinkler and rode Quinn’s new tractor. We had a huge Mexican buffet that I put together, with all the fixins! Quinn opened some presents, which he loved, and then promptly passed out from exhaustion for a late afternoon nap.
Quinn and Gavin’s grandpa who lives in Pennsylvania came into town over the weekend. Quinn loves his grandpa so much, that I am surprised he didn’t completely break down when he left this morning. My guess is he hasn’t realized they are gone yet. He will probably ask for them when he wakes up from his nap today. I cried!
During their visit we visited a few train tracks, went on short hikes, and ate lots of good food. It was fun!
