Choo Choo, Jace is TWO!

IMG_0327IMG_0328Hola friends! Wanted to post some pictures from Jace’s 2nd birthday party. As you can see, the theme was his favorite thing in the whole wide world right now = Thomas the Train! We love Veteran’s Park in downtown Gilbert; it’s the perfect size playground for a small party, and right next to the railroad tracks! It was super cheap to rent out a ramada. Downside, you had to walk across the tracks to use the restroom :/

Any-who, I found the cutest invitation and banner for the party on Etsy, including a “Baggage Claim” sign for his little party favor bags my friend Heather made us .. ordered cake pops from Fry’s Signature Marketplace (in Scottsdale, off Shea/Tatum) .. made his mini confetti cake from my bundt cake pan .. and topped it off with his other favorite thing in the world, a sparkler “two”! I of course didn’t capture all the details, like I did at his 1st birthday party.  This time around I had to keep an eye on him since he was running around like a mad man. He really was the happiest little boy, socializing and smiling at everyone, probably to get more M&Ms from the cake pop jar, but nonetheless, he was a social butterfly up until the end. Such a trooper. He loved hanging out with all the kids, and especially his girlfriend, Miss Maivyn (see the cheek stroke below:)). Such a fun day. Weather was perfect, a slight breeze. Easy peasy! Also, my sweet sister-in-law took a lot of these photos with her fancy camera, and the rest came from my other sister ;) Oh, and as can be expected, I’m in almost none of the photos, hahaha. Oh-well. Maybe at his 3rd birthday?! And his little Thomas the Train baseball hat is to-die-for (thanks Momma!). Enjoy the pictures!

  • Block printed bags, by Heather by Hand (contact her here to customize some for your next party!)
  • Thomas “daddoos” (temporary tattoos) and Rubber bracelets (Party City, baby!)
  • Dum dum suckers
  • Mini play-dohs
  • Push along Thomas Toys for the babies
  • Sunglasses (I friggin’ love these!)
