2 x 2

Today I went to two birthday parties to celebrate the birthday person turning two. It's a really momentus occasion. In the year that's passed, you've lived half of your life. You've achieved massive milestones (walking, talking, independence....) and grown a whole heap. It really is something worth celebrating!
So in the morning I was at Mission Bay with Ruby's family and friends. The theme - pretty, pink and butterflies....

Happy Birthday Ruby!
Then in the afternoon I drove out - way, way out into the country to celebrate Lewis' birthday with his family and friends in Kaukapakapa. The theme - cowboys, cake and cars!

Happy Birthday Lewis!
Even though both parties were different theme-wise, they were similar in so many ways....

  • both sets of parents had put in a lot of time and effort to make each party really special.

  • lots of people gathered to celebrate how far the birthday people have come (in their action packed two years) and everything that makes them special.

  • everyone wanted the best for them and to show them how much they are loved.

  • all the presents were thoughtfully chosen to suit their particular personality and interests.

  • we were all keen to sing "Happy Birthday" and eat cake!
It has been a privilege to be part of these little people's lives over the last year or so and I look forward to celebrating many more birthdays with them. I bet Lewis loves cake just as much when he's 21! It will be interesting to see where Ruby stands on pink when she's 21.......
