Party Time!

We decided to do a combined birthday party for the kids this year and it worked out great. Coming up with a theme for both of them was a little challenging but after watching Despicable Me about a thousand times already this summer it became clear that a Minion birthday party was the way to go.
My friend Amy made the cake and it turned out super cute!

We did a bubble station and a pinata for the kids and they all seemed to love it. Evan was eyeing the pinata all day and couldn't wait to take a swing at it. 

After numerous rounds we had to have daddy finish it off, pretty sure it was made of steel.

I made my own bubble solution and it worked out very well, and it was super easy!
1 cup water
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
4 tablespoons Dawn dishwashing liquid

The kids had a great time and so did we.

Erin is 2!

Two! No way. My beautiful girl is growing up so fast I can't believe it. She has been talking in full sentences lately and I love it so much. Her tiny voice saying "what doing mommy" just kills me!
Right now she is pretty feisty when it comes to getting her own way. You have to catch her in the right mood to change her clothes that's for sure. And tell her she can't wear her favorite shoes, look out.
She still will eat anything and loves cherry tomatoes (which she will pluck out of the garden and eat if they are even remotely red).
We've been doing a little potty training but nothing too serious yet. She's already peed on the potty twice so I think she might be a little easier to train than Evan. We'll see.
She's a pretty goofy girl and can also be very serious. I took her outside to get some photos the other night and I'll let them speak for her personality. I just adore her more and more everyday.

And these are from her actual birthday yesterday. Little known fact, she is terrified of birthday candles. Who knew?

And these are the favorite shoes by the way.
