He's Two !!

Happy Birthday, Ty!

Ty had his second birthday yesterday, October 27. It's pretty crazy to think we've had him around for that long. He's been a great addition to the family and we love him!

Luckily, we live in a town where the mayor's #1 priority is to have as many "festival" events as possible throughout the year. He even has a forsaken street parade in the middle of December. Anyhow, it so happens the "Cedar City Livestock & Heritage Festival" fell on Ty's birthday. So we instantly had stuff to do to help us celebrate.

In the morning, we went to the, yes, you guessed it, parade, which was highlighted by 1,000 sheep marching down the street. Ty kind of liked it.

For the evening, we had Ty's great grandma and great aunt over for cake and ice cream. Rachel did a great job on the pumpkin cake! The scariest part of the celebration was when Ty's sleeve caught fire for a split second.

Rachel found the perfect gift for a kid who, no doubt, dreams about the next button he can find and push. He loves to open and close doors, push buttons, hear beeps, etc. So, Rachel found a toy microwave that he loves like crazy. He got a lot of great toys for his birthday this year, and this one is going to be used for a long time. Probably until he's at least 13.

Well, we're blessed to have him and look forward to child number two. Ty will definitely be a good brother.

That's interesting. For me, the scariest part would be trying to down cake and ice cream while sitting next to my great grandma and great aunt.

I'm sorry that we didn't call on his birthday, but I did more than that....I spent time with him while you were in Philly.
