Here are some pictures from our celebratory park outing for Tanner's 2nd birthday! He got a cool new big wheel to ride on... and his buddy, Drake, came to play too.
He must have known he was getting older, b/c while usually disinterested in them, he wanted to take a crack at the big kid swings, and was not happy about having to get off!
Then we moved the party to Chick-Fil-A (of course) for dinner and cake! Tanner loves Diego... especially the "Rescue Pack" song.
And his other favorite is Max and Ruby... so he got a "Max" to hang out with too (courtsey of Aunt Mandy, of course).
And finally, he got to dive into his birthday cake - literally.
Two has brought on some new things for Tanner... his climbing (though I didn't think it was possible) has improved, he talks all the time, and has suddenly decided that what he wants is every bit as important as what Gracie and Tessa want too and is unafraid to mix it up with the girls to make his feelings known!!
But.... my favorite thing he does these days is his absolute insistance to give everyone a hug before they leave the house, or he heads off to nap or bed time. It's soooo sweet!
So Happy Birthday to our sweet little surprise! I think it's going to be a fun... and crazy year.
