Saturday October 24th, we trekked to Norwich to celebrate Graham's 2nd birthday with all his pals (and lots of extended family, too). We decided a late morning get together would be much more in tune with our nap schedule than mid afternoon. (And I hope no one was too upset about all the pre-lunch sugar.) We hadn't been to Kids' Kingdom since before he was walking, so this trip was a whole new adventure.
Last year's sock monkey theme was so much fun we decided we'd do a self-designed theme again this year and settled on robots. (Fingers crossed we'll get to pick at least one more year before Graham demands Transformers or some other over-commercialized nonsense!)
Jim created a cool papier mache balloon holder (above) and I silk screened robot t-shirts for all the kids.
I also made a robot birthday cake complete with mini donut appendages and a lollipop antenna held together with (a pound and a half of) butter cream frosting.
Graham barely stopped long enough to blow out his candles before he was back on the run.
Here's video of the kids playing:
And a few snapshots of the revellers:
Thanks to everyone who helped us celebrate!
