Kendall’s 2nd Birthday Part One

Planning a 2nd birthday party is WAY different than planning a first birthday. I guess you could say mom becomes more a procrastinator? Whatever the case, be expecting a few birthday posts because I took over 200 pictures.

I decided to go will a fall-ish theme for Kendall’s 2nd birthday this year.

I sat up the cupcakes, drinks and food inside out home. These pictures were taken before everything was out – oh well, you get the point! We served regular beef chili, white chicken chili, piggies in a blanket, veggies/dip, apples/caramel dip, chips and cupcakes!


We knew our big backyard would be the perfect setting for everyone and we had temps in the high 70s!

The kiddos enjoyed the swing set!


We sat up a tent and tables in the backyard for everyone to sit!


I wanted to take a picture of everyone parked in our yard! Have I mentioned I love all of our space? Compared to our house/yard last year – I am in LOVE!DSC_0136

We were blessed with the most beautiful day and the BEST company! We have such great friends and family. It was a perfect day!
