Only being a little more than a week apart, Cohen and Emma have both turned two, and last weekend we celebrated with a big birthday bash. It was so much fun, and I swear the day was a reminder to me that God really does answer prayers. First, the weather…the weekend before we had unbearable heat and humidity, and there was a call for thunderstorms the day of the party. The weather turned out to be absolutely perfect. We really couldn’t have asked for a better day. Then, Cohen…a couple days before the party, he started to not feel well. The night before, he was up at 2 am with a fever over 103. Not good. I literally prayed every 10 minutes that he would be okay in time to go to the party on Saturday evening. I would gladly take the fever, runny nose, all of it, if it meant that he would be well. All of our family had come in from out of town, and I just wanted him to have a super fun time at his party. I’m happy to report, he arrived at the party with a huge smile on his face, and he had so much fun! All of the kids loved the playground. In fact, Cohen and Emma had such a fun time, I didn’t get even one good photo of them the entire night! I kind of slacked on party photos in general, and it was so nice to just enjoy spending time with all of our family and friends and, of course, all the yummy food and desserts KaCee and I made.
I did get this one iPhone photo of Rory and Cohen, and I love it.
I didn’t get a photo of the real invites (see, I’m a slacker), but here’s the digital version. Loved how these turned out! Perfect for our beachy theme.

They each had their own cake, and both were delicious!
Of course, we had to serve sand cups with gummy sharks.
And these amazing push up cupcakes! Aren’t these SO cute? A huge hit with the kids.
It was a huge coincidence that Target happened to have all sorts of summer supplies in the perfect colors to match our theme. We didn’t even plan it that way. Now, if only we had purchased them two weeks later when it was all 50% off. You can’t always win, I guess!
We made custom beach themed coloring books for each of the kids’ favor buckets.
The taco-in-a-bag was also a hit with all the guests!
What a fun party! I’m so glad we got to celebrate Cohen and Emma turning two with everyone. And now, after a party in May, June, and July…I’m partied out for awhile!
