Birthday and Camping Fun!!

I can't believe the girls are 2! It is going so fast, but we are enjoying every minute of it all.
We had their second birthday with a small party with our family. The girls love Minnie mouse so we did a Minnie theme and they dressed up as Minnie (they weren't too excited about wearing the ears, though).

l-r Anna, Alex, Natalie, Elisabeth

We played pin the ears on Minnie




Even in the middle of the party they want to stop and read their books

The girls got a singing card and that was enough for Natalie. She wasn't interested in anything else!

They also got a sand and water table that was a hit (and a huge mess!)

Grandmama and Grandpapa came to visit

... and our big camping trip!

Yes, we took all the kids for the girls' first camping trip. It was a lot of work, and we didn't get much sleep (we are still recovering), but the kids had fun. Overall it was a good experience that we don't feel the need to repeat anytime soon!

We got a huge 10 person tent so there was plenty of room!

We decided to bring the pack and plays and it was a good decision. They had a two hour party in their beds at bedtime, though.

They got chairs for their birthday from Aunt Laura, Uncle Craig and Aubrey- perfect gift!

You are SO brave for taking them camping! I can't imagine! It looks like the girls had a wonderful birthday too!

Wow, I'm so impressed that you took them camping! I'm sure packing the car was half the adventure.
