My sweet sister decided to come down this month not only to see her newest niece again, but to also be here for Owen's 2nd birthday. Plus I have been dying to take Tyson to the Zoo here in Providence, but the weather doesn't always seem to understand that we don't have time for rain, wind or snow. So with that, we were very lucky to have beautiful weather while they where here. Thank Heavens. I wasn't quit sure how to explain to my 3 year old nephew that we couldn't go see the Elephants again this time. Sadly though, it was me who was unable to attend this years Spooky Zoo at Roger Williams. I was a busy beaver cleaning the house and getting party things ready for Owen's 2nd birthday. My parents along with my sister took the kiddos to the Zoo while hubby and I handled the party stuff here at the house. It really worked out great that way too. By the time they arrived home, everything was just about finished.

I was so happy that my sister and nephew as well as my parents could come down for Owen's 2nd birthday. It was such a great day. Warm weather, great food, lots of friends and family. I still can't believe that we managed to pack almost 30 people in the house and that included at least 12 kids. WOW. I still have been horrible getting Thank You cards out in the mail, but I have not forgotten. I keep hoping for a good picture of Owen to send everyone along with the Thank You's. But those who have had pleasure to spend time with a 2 year old, knows that its always a hit or miss with them. So keep a lookout. I promise I will send them to you!

I would have to say all in all the day was a complete success. Everyone to me had a good time. We had the pleasure of spending his birthday with some great friends as well as our great neighbors. Owen had a fantastic time being the busy body that he is. And by the end of the day, was so tired that he fell asleep in his clothes. Poor bugger. HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY LITTLE MAN, MOMMY LOVES YOU TONS!
