ruthie girl's second birthday

Ruthie's second birthday "splash bash" was a blast! So many of her sweet little friends joined us for an afternoon of water fun in our driveway, and the weather could not have been more perfect. The party was complete with three pools, a sand table, water guns, water balloons, a sprinkler and bubbles! Oh, and WATER! Really, what else does a toddler need?!

I planned it for a Friday afternoon, which just so happened to be her actual birthday, and I've found that this is a great time to host a party. Moms and kiddos are usually looking for something to do after naps on a Friday before Dad gets home and a party with snacks and cupcakes is always a crowd favorite.

Trey is such a good sport. 
He agreed to let the kids cover him in shaving cream...

We were lucky enough to even have a few Daddies in attendance.

And Aunt Meg always lends a helping hand. I'm SO thankful for her.

Aunt Jess and the boys were able to make the trip up. And we posed for pictures with our babies. 
And our Bjorns. 
Because it isn't everyday that you get to wear your baby with your best friend.
