Ash turns 2

 It was Ashley's birthday on the 1st, and it's only the 23rd today, so we are doing pretty good! not even a whole month has gone by yet! We were trying to decide when to do a little "party" for her and decided to have a sunday picnic and just invite everyone! It was fantastic, we had EVERYONE from both of our families come out (minus the saskatoonians) I love living close to all our family to have little get togethers like this :) 

I couldn't really decide on a "theme" for her part either. she likes dora, but she REALLY likes trains and airplanes and cars. so we went with a Train theme and made it a little girly.Which is why she got her CAR MAT to match her theme....sorta. ha ha  I think her cake turned out pretty good, and it tasted pretty delicious if I do say so myself! 

All the pictures of the party are all over the place and since I am babysitting 6 kids (most of whom are napping right now) and trying to pack to go see my favorite sister....I am way too lazy to move them around. 

This was a present from auntie michelle and it has been a fast favorite....who didn't have one of these growing up?? love it. 

We had the party at the "train park" aka Nicholas Sheran park, and I was not about to haul this wonderful present from my parents all the way down there. So they came over after for a private present opening ;)

A SLIDE!! they were so excited!!

Waiting not so patiently while dad puts it together. 

This was by far the best present we have ever recieved!! ha ha All the kids play on it CONSTANTLY!! they never get sick of it. its rather entertaining to watch too!
Thanks gramma and grampa!

Lincoln and carson gave her this adorable pink lawnmower that blows bubbles. hours of fun with this one as well! (can you tells he got ridiculously spoiled??)

And I forgot my camera when we got to the park. I almost cried!! I have no videos of her opening presents or anything. worst mom ever :( 

Thankfully Sue was there and took a bunch of pics for me! THANKS SUE!! That pic of Chloe with Lexie in the background is killing me.... ha ha what is she doing?? 

The kids all playing at the park before  lunch. 

It was so fun to hang out with all the cousins, brady is a good sport ;)

ha ha she is always rubbing him on the head "hi tars" BFFs for life!

we only brought one blanket....good one jennie. at least it didn't rain as it was forecasted to do!! 

Ash's reaction to her cake. ha ha I dont know why, must have been the candles. She was super excited when she saw it at home before we left. 

But wouldn't go near it...even with the candles blown out?? what a weirdo. 

Now just to clarify these next pictures. while i WAS excited, I think I may have been doing my "way overexcited face to try and get a reaction from my stone face daughter look" so I look like an idiot in all of them. 

See....told you. 

She loved this elephant card. it is one of the cutest words she knows how to say! sounds sort of like "anafant" but in a super cute adorable voice. 

britt and lindz being awesome cousins and blowing bubbles for all the littles! 
While she didn't like the cake, she did love eating it!! and we didn't even have any leftover, a success I would say! 

there's that face again. she was SO excited for that puppy! and the bubbles! doesn't get much better!!

Britt snapped this picture of her saying "airpane!!" she can hear an airplane from anywhere and gets SO excited! well as excited as Ashley does....she is alot like her dad ;)

It was a great day and we were SO happy everyone could come celebrate with us!! We love you Ashy boo and I can't believe you are already two. Happy Birthday.....23 days ago :)

Jennie, you are the best mom! I love how happy you and your kids are. I am jealous of you and your craftiness/baking/sewing/best at everything!!!

I'll be interested to see how many comments this post gets! lol.

That cake is seriously ridiculous. Who are you??!?!?

p.s. I LOVE that you just let her be in love with trains and cars and made it into her birthday theme, even if it's unconventional for a girl. Great mom!

Cute cake!!! And cute excited faces...very believable. I just laughed this whole post cause Smash NEVER smiles. But man alive is she cute....wish we could have been there...and that you would have brought more blankets.

The cake was delish and I am still in awe of your mad crafting/sewing skills! Claire was convinced it was Chloe's birthday even though we sang to Ashley. "Mom, wasn't Chloe's birthday party SO fun?" Indeed.
