Ethan's 2nd Birthday Party

This past Saturday we headed to Puzzle's Fun Dome to celebrate Ethan's 2nd birthday (which was on March 3rd). Ethan has been looking forward to this for quite some time. Ever since we took him there for a fun day out a couple months ago, he has wanted to go back.

For the week prior to the party, he would wake up each morning and proclaim "Ethan's birthday party today!", but I would have to say, "No, a couple more days...". And finally the day came.
The kids had a blast and honestly, so did the adults! Puzzles has 5 or 6 huge inflatable jumping houses, slides, and obstacle courses, along with a movie room, art room, toddler play area and cosmic basketball court. Even my dad and my father-in-law got in on the fun, scaling a 25ft. ladder to bounce their way down a slide!

Ethan loved his Elmo cake that nana got for him made of individual cupcakes. Although it was immediately clear that red icing perhaps wasn't the best idea for a two year old...

He got some of the cutest gifts from everyone - to name a few, a Step 2 motorcycle, a Kawasaki ride-on 4x4, clothes, Little People magnetic art board, a Sit-N-Spin, and a Melissa & Doug mailbox - which went perfectly with the gift I handmade for him, a felt mail set.

Ethan loves to play with the envelopes I open and discard from bills, cards, etc. He puts them inside the seat of his little ride-on firetruck and pretends to drive around delivering mail. So when I came across this idea on one of my favorite craft blogs, UCreate, I was bound and determined to find the time to make it for his birthday. I think it turned out pretty cute!

All in all, he had so much fun with all of his cousins at his birthday party, and was completely worn out by the end of the day. We all got to come home and take an afternoon nap! Happy Birthday Ethan! I can't believe you are 2! We love you!
