The twins turned two this week. We just do small birthday celebrations, but we always pick out a fun cake. Now the twins like Elmo, so we went to pick out an Elmo cake. A certain older brother had other ideas, though. You can see who won that debate - I figured it was one of those things not worth fighting, since the twins don't truly understand yet. And it was a cute cake!
Pierce also picked out a gift for each twin. He picked out Melissa and Doug toys. A truck that carries cars for Reid and a birthday cake set for Cort. The twins really loved these.
We invited family to come eat
Elmo Diego cake and have some burgers. Cousin Grady came and Cort and Reid took him out to show him our baby chicks (post coming soon!).
The cake was a hit!
Cousin Grady enjoyed it too.
Reid enjoying cake with Great Aunt Pam and Great Uncle George in the background. The boys hadn't seen them since Christmas and they were thrilled to have them come for a visit. Pierce in particular really enjoyed spending time with them.
For the twins' actual birthday I took them downtown to ride the trolley.
Waiting for the trolley -
It's about a 20 minute ride (and free!) and the boys just loved it.
After it was time to head home, I was subjected to a great deal of whining, particularly from Reid, who kept saying "TRUCK! RIDE ON TRUCK!" the whole way home. Going to have to work on learning to say trolley!
It was a fun birthday - and the twins are now my favorite age - 2! No lie, I love the terrific 2s!
