You had to know this was coming.
I planned it for months. Okay, weeks. 10 days of actually doing stuff.
10 days out I began the Blues Clues-ery with creating a little "pin the clue on Blue" Game.
Cardstock and DIY laminate (for the paw prints) in the form of packing tape.
All his favorites in a rainbow of course. And then the balloons. Boy loves his balloons.
Even Kevs got into the birthday spirit.
And true to birthday form, for the second year in a row, he mostly just ate the m&m's.
And some ice cream.
Little d's friend Lolo, uncle blake, grandma darsi, dad enjoying the rainbowy goodness.
Two year olds can totally command a fork... even in ice cream.

Then there was that pinata. So fragile we thought it only fair to let Lolo have a turn first,
you know before birthday boy beat it to bits.
So we got a bigger bat...
tried it on a tee...
dad tried his hand at it... (darsi tried as well, but I cannot find that picture)
Was it made of steel?! Uncle Blake using his super strength finally blasted open the beast!
Then he spotted the candy.
What followed can only be described a la Finding Nemo as a "mine?" episode. With toddlers.
HE COULDN'T BELIEVE WE WOULD VOLUNTARILY GIVE HIM FRUIT SNACKS!
And of course the yearly birthday family photo
Makes for awesome photos right?
Not only is he looking away from the camera, but he is looking at his own hand.
A new bike!!!
Best Birthday ever, I would say.
