Outdoor Fun!

This post is slightly overdue, but I just came across the pictures and decided I had to post it!  Back in mid-April, we purchased a new patio set and on the 15th, the weather was just too perfect not to enjoy it!  We brought Olivia's little table and chairs outside and spent the afternoon out there.  Later that evening, because it was burger night (every Sunday!), Lee brought everything outside and we had a true cookout!  It was really lovely and the perfect way to enjoy the new furniture!

After a while, Olivia and I came inside to play for a bit.  She wanted to invite her "friends" to have a snack with her!

I just can't get enough of this kid!

Post Party Photo Shoot!

After the party, we changed Olivia into something a little more comfortable for her and went outside to blow some bubbles and enjoy the sun!  Uncle Mark came out and shot a few photos of us playing!

I probably should've worn my sunglasses!

Getting the hang of it!  Trying to keep her from licking the wand!

Thanks Uncle Mark for snapping some pics!  After we were outside for a bit, Lee came out and took a few more pics!



 Was fun "modeling" for the camera!  After that, we went inside and enjoyed watching Olivia push her new baby from Nana and Papa around in the stroller!!

What a great day!

2nd Birthday Party!

I know, I'm slightly behind, given our little nugget has been 2 for over a month now!  But, I digress....

We had Olivia's 2nd birthday party on Sunday, April 29th.  We kept it small(ish) with just close family and friends and we had it at Grandma and Grandpa's house!  She was such a good girl that day, just taking it all in. We did a brunch and had the party at 11.  Mom made some breakfast casseroles and we brought fruit, bagels and coffee.  We even had mimosas!  Grandma and Grandpa gave Olivia her birthday present a few days before the party and she LOVES it!

She has her very own place to sit and loves putting her baby dolls and her stuffed animals in it as well.  Thanks Grandma and Grandpa!

Here are a few pics from the party people!

After the food, playing and visiting, it was cupcake time!

 Present time!!!

She LOVES her purple chair from Nana and Papa!  It's her "outside" chair!
Mommy and Daddy got her a bike!  Yes, a bike!!  Are we crazy?  Probably!  The Strider is a great bike for the little ones.  It teaches them balance and gets them all ready for the real bike!!

She was hesitant, but I think she'll do great once we get her a helmet that fits her cute little noggin!  Her party was a great success, and her 3 hour nap afterwards was a testament to that!  Can't wait to celebrate many many more birthdays with our little Princess!
