The little cutie is 2!!

I can't believe it, but it's true. The weekend was a blur of planning and checking the weather, which was looking to drop from the lovely 70s we were in to around 50.
Really??
I stayed optimistic until the end, but alas, the kids (kidsicles) were in jackets and red noses all day, and no one touched the iced lemonade on the patio...told you I was optimistic! But the kids had a blast, and Charlie was so sweet to all of his friends. He got some really great gifts, too. It was just a great day...family, friends, my sweet boy so happy. We were all so thrilled to meet Melkamu and Kai, just home from Ethiopia about one month month ago.
Some pics, of course!


















This post would be longer, and more fun filled, but I reeeeally should be packing for our trip to the mountains. We leave tomorrow with Jess and fam, and Cat and fam.
It should be a blast, as long as I get off my butt and like, say, put some clothes in a bag. Here goes!
Have a great weekend, everyone! :)

Charlie looks so tall. What's up with that? How did that happen??? You look lovely, as ever... And if Z had been there he would have been thrilled with the Lightning "The Queen" cake (as he calls it). Have a fun trip.

It was a wonderful party, and I can hardly believe how big Charlie is getting! We had a great time seeing everyone. Patrick has been asking for a slide in the yard "just like Charlie's" ever since then!

Happy Birthday to Charlie! Looks like the party was a success, despite the uncooperative weather. Sorry we missed it! We were entertaining out-of-town guests.
