jack is TWO.

gift bags and frame.
it said:
"please grab some cookies to take home and eat.
Thank you, thank you for making my second birthday so sweet."

it is NOT easy taking a picture with jack

his "cake"
chocolate bowls, ice cream and sprinkles

blowing out his candle


no, that's not punch.
that is the bubble station.
the green stuff is the bubbles that I made 
and the cans had bubble wands and water guns in them.


and we made this slip and slide with the pvc pipe sprinkler.
the tutorial to make it is here.

a thunder storm rolled in and everyone got really cold.

 love you love you
my sweet baby boy!
I hope two years old is blissfully mischievous for you.

we started off our fourth of July weekend staying up at the tag's cabin.
jack wasn't extra fond of the horses that dared to get closer than about three feet of him.
they were feeling mighty friendly.



then we headed to the huntsville parade.
jack wasn't very fond of his parents who tried to get within three feet of him.


we went for a hike behind the tag's cabin

roasted hot dogs in our fire pit in the back yard.

this picture is more than I could ever hope for.
check out michaels face.
he was playing frisby believe it or not.
was he trying to catch with his mouth?

and we ended with the fireworks at Liberty.
