Callum's Second Birthday Party

In case you didn't hear me shouting it from the roof tops, Callum turned the big 2 this week. We threw a party for him on Saturday, and had an awesome time. We did a "construction" theme, since he is obsessed with diggers, and he loved it. I will say though, my "Caution" tape everywhere did get confused with a murder crime scene a few times. 

Highlight of the day: I sent Matt to get balloons from the party store. Our wires were crossed a bit (we're blaming a parentheses that got confused as a 1) and Matt got wayyy too many balloons. Like, way too many. You guys. It was hilarious. He couldn't even fit them all in the car. He had to tie them to the door handles and drive home. So, the trunk was full of balloons, the back and passenger seats were full of balloons, and he had them tied to the doors outside. He said people were taking pictures of his car on the way home. It just cracks me up soooo much. I'm sure he was so irritated with me while he was waiting for the balloons to be filled and then realizing they weren't going to fit in the car. I love that husband of mine. 

For food, I roasted and shredded a few whole chickens the night before to use for sandwiches. I also made this pasta salad and potato salad, cut up a ton of fruit, and my mom made a salad. For the cake, I made an imitation-DQ ice cream cake that was a huge it. I'll blog about the cake in another post since it was so easy and so good. We also had the usual cheese and crackers, olives, pickles, sort of stuff. The best part about all the food was that I could do everything before hand, and just had to set it all out come dinner time.

It was so fun to watch Callum actually enjoy his party this year. For his first birthday, he was just there. This year, he could open presents, play with his friends, blow out his candles. It was just so fun. I almost didn't plan a party for him this year, but I am so glad I did.

Now, take a drink every time you see a picture with a balloon in it ... 


  1. Such a great theme! Looks like it was a hit and you found a place to put all the balloons!
