For AJ's birthday this year we decided to spread out the celebration since his birthday hit on a Thursday. So we had a lot of good fun, and then a trip to Chuck E Cheese during the weekend (a first for both boys...and yes, they are in love) and time spent with family. It seemed our little 2 year old had a really great time! :) His actual birthday included a chocolate cheerio breakfast, a trip to the park, a McDonald's happy meal lunch, lots of fun with his brother and then his favorite dinner. More fun was had over the whole extended celebration that you can see in these pictures.
A very happy boy with his breakfast
During AJ's nap time Big Brother Jake and Grandma Peg made special cookies (Jake still LOVES to bake)
What does our two year old like to eat, macaroni and cheese with basil pesto tilapia :) Refined tastes for this one.
Then some light reading before bedtime. :)
Of course we had to include swimming in the pool with their super hero toys!
And snuggles with Daddy
AJ was very excited about his cake this year. A chocolate chip cookie cake with Mickey Mouse on it!
The boy loves his Mouse
"Hmmmm...this cake looks pretty tasty..."
Happy Cookie Boy
Jake seemed to enjoy it too :)
Then off to Chuck E Cheese...Jake checking out his driving skills
AJ driving...look out!!!
But then he discovered that riding a horse is more his speed :)
Best of all...a game with a ball!!! He did pretty well too and sunk his share of baskets.
"This is fun mommy"
Jake showing off his own skills
"Woooo...did you see that!!!"
Aunt B teaching AJ the fine art of Skeeball...note it does not include throwing the balls overhand!
Its a Race!
Then it was present time. I love this picture, AJ's face looks fierce..."Hulk Smash!!!"
"More color pages??!?!?....yes!!!!"
Of course big brother Jake had to help with the opening of gifts
A Dusty plane!
Piano!!! Yes Mommy and Daddy gave AJ musical toys because he loves them..it may be noisy, but he loves it. :D

And of course we need to enjoy some cake and ice cream on Mickey Plates to finish out the celebration :)
Wish I had gotten a better pic of this but AJ also got some new shoes...his Superman shoes which he calls his "Soup Man Shoes." He loves to wear them and run into a dark bathroom to watch them light up. So much fun and happiness for our little birthday boy which made this mommy very happy. Now onto our future adventures in Oklahoma!!! Will try and get posts up as soon as I can once we have moved. :)
