Chugga, Chugga, Choo, Choo! Our Drew is {Almost} 2!!!

We had Drew's 2nd birthday party last weekend, and it was so much fun! His actual birthday isn't until this Saturday the 23rd, but we had his party a week early. We like to draw out the celebrations as long as possible!

For Clayton's 2nd birthday party, we had a train theme. We hired a trackless train to take the kids on rides around the neighborhood. I will never forget how much fun Clayton had on that train!

His little brother is quite infatuated with trains at this point, as well. So, we decided to have a "Vintage Carpenter" party and just do it all again. :)

Drew had a ball! His sweet little face was lit up for the entire party. The train took the kids around the neighborhood for an hour. Drew stayed on the train the whole time and would say, "Again! Again! Again!" as soon as it would stop to reload passengers. I was so glad that he enjoyed it! He was precious to watch.

Happy Party Goers :)

A side by side comparison: 2 year old train-loving Clayton on the left
and {almost} 2 year old train-loving Drew on the right.
I'd say that they are definitely resembling each other these days....

Wade & I with our birthday boy

That boy has such a big chunk of my heart...

He pretty much looked like this for the entire hour.

At the end, the conductor let Drew sit in the engine car.
I'm pretty sure that ringing the bell and "driving" was the highlight for my boy. :)

Cupcakes - Yum!

Drew LOVED blowing out his candles!
Wade had to relight them 4 or 5 times before we even got to sing. Ha!

After cupcakes, Drew started saying something over and over again. We looked over and realized that he had somehow shimmied out of his diaper. He partied his diaper right off! Still not sure how that happened... Little Houdini!

We had so much fun celebrating our boy! Thank you to all of our sweet family and friends that came to Drew's party! We are so blessed to be surrounded by people who love our kids. We are so grateful for each of you!
