Two Special Birthdays for Two Special Boys!

The past weekend was spent celebrating two very special birthdays...my Dad's 39th (hee!) and Vance's 2nd!

It was a warm and pretty day on Saturday, so we had a little picnic for Dad's birthday at the Greenway Pavilion. They have a small playground there, and Dawson took his first ride down a slide!


I think he liked it!
It got pretty windy and a little chilly, so we headed back home for birthday pie and gifts!
Zoey had her first taste of Four-Layer Pie...
...we missed you, J, but Zoey had no problem eating your piece!
Our gift to Dad was a DVD of his field dedication ceremony and a frame of pictures and grass from the field for him to keep.
Me and my Jer!
On Sunday, Dawson and I headed to the Discovery Center to celebrate Vance's second birthday! Dawson had a BLAST!
We joined Megan and Web and Vance and all of their family and friends to sing Happy Birthday to the big boy...
Vance had a special fishy cake complete with fins that Rachel made.
This pretty much sums up Vance's entire experience! He was so excited!
We had our own fishy cakes, too...little cupcakes! Dawson had blue icing all over the place.
After cake, we got into some serious playtime. Dawson loved "driving" the life-size fire engine...
...playing peek-a-boo with Aunt Meag...
...crawling in and out of the giant caterpillar...
... and playing with all kinds of neat toys!
We had a wonderful time! I think we all took good naps afterwards...adults included!

Thank you, Megan and Web, for hosting a great party and letting us be a part of Little Man's life! He is precious!
