CHOO CHOO PAH-TEE!!!!!!

The long awaited choo choo party has come and gone. We had a really great time and are so thankful so many of Aidric's friends were able to come over and celebrate with him.

We are also VERY thankful that my mom flew in to surprise me with a visit as well!!! I walked in the door yesterday, looked at Chris, looked over, saw my mom, looked back at Chris and then just tried to figure out how I had walked in the wrong door and ended up somewhere else. It honestly took a good 5 seconds for me to register that she was here and then I was just SO EXCITED!!!

But, back to the party. We had six 2 year olds and a few 3 year old siblings thrown in. Dot-dot painting, decorating the big train, jumping on the trampoline and water play preceded lunch and eating cake. We waited until the party was over and Aidric had napped to open presents, so those pics will come next.

The train cake I made and decorated

LOVED his cake and was so excited when everyone cheered for him after blowing out the candle.
