Olive’s friend, Ethan, just turned two and had a great party over the weekend. Unfortunately our lovely Minnesota summer suddenly ended and the feelings of late fall were in full swing. Despite the shivers it seemed like everyone had a great time! I thought I would bring my camera along because I’ve noticed that parents never seem to remember or to find the time to take as many photos as they want. I didn’t take as many as I wanted to since I was there to enjoy the party and hang out with Olive but I captured some great moments, especially with the cupcakes. :)
Olive was ready to paaaaaarty:
As was Ethan:
Ethan tried his hand at the spinning helicopter things:
Amber made yummy gluten, dairy, and sugar free cupcakes:
Naomi modeled the birthday boy’s cupcake:
And threw in an Angry Bird’s tattoo:
Ethan seemed intrigued by the candles being lit:
I like this series… You can probably hear the “fffffffftttt”:
Olive seemed intrigued:
Diego seemed to be inspecting the cupcake as well:
And considered the flavors splashing across his palate:
I asked Amber’s sister if she wanted a cupcake eating photo like the kids, she just laughed:
Olive seemed interested in more:
But was still thoughtful:
Ethan was pretty darn excited:
And opted for the handsfree approach as well:
And then he did this super cute thing:
Amber’s mom attended the party via Skype from the Philippines. Some of the guests were a little confused about the talking compter:
I took a bunch of gift opening photos but I’ll spare you and post a few highlights.
Most of my photos had a big Olive in the way:
Oh hey girls..
Ethan was gifted one of the same Bibles that Olive has. He said “Jesus!” right after he opened it. I have a feeling his will have fewer bite marks than Olive’s..
Amber made Ethan a busy book. Which reminds me I need to keep working on Olive’s!
Overall it was the best Angry Bird’s themed party I’ve ever been to! hehehe. It was a really good party. Lots of fun! And it was really neat to have been able to attend both his first and second birthday parties so far. Actually it was neat to also visit him in the hospital just after he was born, too. We go way back… ;)
Happy Birthday Ethan!!!
