Brayden's 2nd birthday party!

 The table cloth, banner, and dino table decor are from Windy City Novelties. You may remember the preview/review here.
 He loved those dinos and wouldn't leave them on the table. He also stole the dino off his cake 3 times. I finally gave up and didn't put it back on. Haha.
 Brynna, Beth's daughter, coloring.

 Menu: Tea, lemonade, juices, water, chips, potato salad (made by my awesome mom), mixed fruit, hot dogs (cooked in the Crockpot on low for 4 hours), sliders (rolls cut in half, 1 pound of ground beef broken up/browned then, mixed with half a block of Velveeta until melty), and dark chocolate cake with chocolate frosting decorated with Whoppers.. errr... rocks on the sides. Those burgers went fast! There is one missing from the picture. It was in Rj's belly.

The gift bag and coloring book also from Windy City Novelties. My mom got the bubbles from Oriental Trading. Brayden and I made the crayon.
 Coloring pages my mom printed off. All the crayons on the floor are ones he already used. Haha.
 Present time! His new Leaptop my mom and Jeannie got him. He LOVES it. You can program it and it has Scout on it. He loves Scout.
 Legos from Casey. I thought I got a picture of her daughters while they were here but oops, guess not!

 Can you tell he likes his Leaptop?
 Rj was reading him his cards and showing him his presents. He was distracted. :P He loves all of his gifts though and has played with each one many times already. Thank you, everyone!

 The little phone Beth, Brynna and Josh got him. :)
 Emails from Scout are serious business.
 Opening his Weebles house that Rj and I got him. We also got him lots of books that he opened up before his party. We plan on getting him lots of Weebles for Christmas this year.

 Cake time!
 Singing Happy Birthday. (Idk why I kept my hands on my sides the whole time.. Seriously..)

 Eating Whoppers he stole off the cake.

 Grandma AKA "Goggle" coloring with him. :)
 Brynna wore Peppy out carrying her around the whole party. :P
 From Grandma Bobbie. Such cute outfits!
 Playing after everyone left. He had SO MUCH fun. Thank you everyone who came! We had a blast!
