We started celebrating the boys second birthday last Saturday by taking them to "123 imagine with Elmo and Friends." The boys liked it but would have rather been on stage than in their seats. It difficult to keep them in their seats but since Canton Civic Theatre is big and had lots of empty seats, we let them wander a little bit.
We wander around, sometimes hanging out in the hallway at the gift shop. We didn't buy anything. It was kind of sneaky, during intermission a man came in with a ton of balloons for sale. Joy said they didn't tell you price till you got up there, $10 a balloon. At that point, you can't really tell your kids no after you said you would. We didn't get one but Jacob tried to get one from another mother. Jasper and I danced during intermission when he wasn't running off or following girls.
After the show, Joy and her mom went to the dollar store and picked up six Elmo balloons. Would have cost $60, they got for $6.
Sunday we had the boys birthday party with family. Joy had made minion cupcakes from Despicable Me twinkles on top. She also made Fettucine Alfredo with homemade noodles and Alfredo. She made homemade pizza. Joy's brother brought ice cream cake. Needless to say, so yummy!
The boys had a blast! They loved all the attention and opening up presents. We got them kido atv cars. We let them play with them out in the back yard. They had a lot of fun playing with their grandpa.
They were not happy when it was time for everyone to go.
On their actual birthday, we're planning on going to the zoo.
