Last week we celebrated my sweet little man's second birthday. Roaring like a lion is his trademark sound, so naturally the party theme grew from there. The celebration began with tickets to Disney's "The Lion King," followed by a small family celebration at home.
Typically I go slightly overboard when planning a party. This year I kept it small and simple, resulting in one of my favorite birthday celebrations yet. Imagine actually spending time with the birthday boy and our family. The icing on the cake... the excitement and joy in his eyes!
The menu included many of the birthday boy's favorites - veggies and dip, fruit, cheese and crackers, chicken nuggets, mac n' cheese made by Mimi, cookies made by Grandma, and, of course, a birthday cake. If you can eat it with a toothpick, all the better. Little man is a grazer, hence the buffet for only 9 people.
Happy Birthday to my sweet baby boy, who truly makes me laugh everyday!
“Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance, and respect all the creatures from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.”
