Happy Birthday Elyse!!!

Today Elyse turned two!! It is certainly hard to believe we can now say we have a two year old! Nuts!!!

We started out the day with a trip to IHOP. She liked the smiley face on the pancake but wasn't interested in eating it.

We celebrated her birthday with a party at one of the neighborhood parks with pizza, snacks and cupcakes. Thank you everyone for coming out and for the great presents too. The weather was perfect and we had a great time. Here are some shots!

Elyse wants a beer and thought the legal drinking age is two here.

She had to settle for a juice box.

We couldn't get the lighter thing to work at first so we sang to her with an unlit candle.
But then it did work and we lit the candle and sang to her again. She was thrilled to hear the birthday song twice (and that's why she has chocolate on her face!)

Maybe our last family picture of three for awhile!!!!

Happy birthday, big girl! We love you so much. You bring so much joy to our life everyday!!!!
