This past weekend was all about celebrating the birth of our baby girl! And boy was it super sweet! If you think celebrating your baby’s first birthday is exciting, wait until you reach their second! This year Connor was far more engaged, excited, and able to enjoy her special day(s)! And that made a world of difference! The best part was seeing the twinkle in her eye, and the bright smile on her face through it all. We kept everything this year super light, toddler friendly, and stress free!
Over the last year her father and I have learned a lot more about what would make HER happy on her Birthday and I think we scored some major parent points this year! Like most kids Connor loves the outdoors, exploring, and spending time with her family/cousins. So we partied it up with some of my family and many of her favorite little peeps (her cousins) at Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch in Culver City. It a sprawling patch with all sorts of bounce houses, slides, food trucks, a petting zoo, (& on the weekends) Pony rides and live bands! Sounds like an instant party right? It turned out to be the perfect way to celebrate our beautiful October baby – in true fall style!
No kids birthday party would be complete without cake, ice cream, and pizza right?
One of the highlights of the evening was for sure Jenis Ice Cream provided by the cute little food truck at Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch. And let me tell you, any place that has White Pear Riesling Ice Cream is a friend of mine! Plus their Brambleberry Crisp Ice-cream (an oven-toasted oat streusel vanilla ice cream mixed with sweet-tart jam of blackberries and blackcurrants) is to live for!
My sister (Auntie Imahny) also brought along the yummiest mini [Birthday] cakes from Bundts By Melrose! They were so friggin awesome and perfect for little hands on the go! Later, we rounded out the night with a fun little after party at Shakey’s Pizza nearby. What a night of some good ole’ fashion fun!
Thanks for helping us celebrate Family!
This was definitely a birthday party to remember! I think we are going to enjoy having a two-year old and all the fun it brings!
