Luke's Birthday

I am now the mother of a two and four year old. No more babies here...
We took a trip up to my cousin's house in Houston for Memorial Day weekend. The kids had a blast swimming in her pool and playing in her HUGE house. We opened presents at our house Friday morning (Luke's actual b-day) and had our "cake" (doughnuts) before driving to Houston. Then Saturday we had cake and presents for Luke with the family.
Here's birthday morning at our house:

(Luke has become obsessed with mowing and weedeating and talks about them all the time. Every time Dave mows, Luke has to watch him or worse, be held by him. Hence the weedeater.)

The kids all had a blast playing in the pool. If anyone is looking, these floaty vests are awesome. They sell them at Wal-Mart for $15 and they have several different animals. They are actually coast guard approved life vests and they worked great. The kids could jump in the pool and swim around very easily with them on.

Luke's birthday party. He is completely into cake. Whenever I asked him what he wanted for his birthday the only thing he told me was "cake". I guess we've had a lot of birthdays lately because whenever he sees a cake or something cake-like (muffins), he starts singing "Happy Birthday to you..."

I love how Luke is just smiling during the song and looking around. Now, shortly before I started taping this, I told Dave, "Go stand by Luke and make sure he doesn't burn himself". Where is Dave in this video???

NOT where he should be. Luckily Luke was prevented from doing damage to his fingers.

We took the little kids out just to play outside and somehow they both ended up in the pool???

I can't believe it's been two years already! Happy Birthday Luke!

Happy 2nd Birthday Luke! Hope you have fun with your weed eater.

Love the video on the weed eater, so cute. The swim vests are cute. All the pictures are great. You made me hungry with the donut pictures. ( I would love to have a Krispie Kreme right now, but there are none anywhere close.)

I forget how little Zachary is until I see normal two year olds. Luke is such a cutie! While I was at Amber's I was thinking about that day when we had the 3 little ones laying on a blanket in her backyard almost 2 years ago.
