Technically, Zach's birthday isn't until this coming Saturday, but since we'll be out of town for the holiday weekend, we had his party this past weekend. I can't believe my baby is TWO already! *sniff* How long can you claim "baby weight" again? :)>
Anyways, I made his cake.....the ducky cake. I made this cake for Matthew's first birthday, but I must admit, I did a much better job decorating it this time around.....yay me! it's flat on the other side....apparently you need more than the 1 cake mix i used..... so you're only getting the view from 'the good side'....
Zach was scared of the candle. He blew towards it, but from 3 feet away, he hardly got the thing blown out....
It was just my family, minus uncle Daniel (who got left in Fairfield thanks to some miscommunications....hahahahahahaha!) and Barry and Jeanne, who are our surrogate grandparents out here. Zach got lots of clothes, of which he was less than thrilled about...he literally just tossed them to the side hoping to find something "better" in the bags.
Then came the big present......a little 4-wheeler like big brother Matthew's. So we all had to take that outside and take it for a spin. Zach seemed to enjoy pushing the thing around more than actually riding it though! He's been a passenger for so long with Matthew and Alaina, I think he's a little scared to take the wheel himself! But he's warming up to it each time he plays. I have no doubt by next weekend he'll be zooming around the yard chasing the others on their respective vehicles. Our garage is totally looking like a power wheels used car lot now!
So it was a good party....everybody had a good time, there was lots of food, good cake, and plenty of gabbing and entertainment from the kids. Zach's the baby, so it's doubly hard to watch him get so big so fast............these two years went by so quickly!
