Happy Birthday Kennedy!!

It's official.  I have a two year old.  I had a really well thought out post about how far we've come in the past two years.  And I even had plans to highlight some fun facts about Kennedy.  But she wore me out today, and I just don't think I have it in me to type out a real post.  Maybe tomorrow.  Today was a great day, but I'm not sure who was/is more exhausted.  Kennedy woke up before 7am and was ready to kick off her birthday!  We started with cards and gifts.  (Of course, she had already gotten her BIG gift from us yesterday.)  Grandma and Grammy came over.  The day continued with pancakes at Ihop.  Then swimming, until her lips were purple and she was shivering.  She had a blast!  We took her to Red Bowl for lunch, where she had her favorite chicken lo mein.  Later today we met daddy for dinner at outback.  Grilled chicken, and fruit, followed by all of the servers singing to her and presenting her with a giant ice cream treat.  She was amazed.  In between all of that included play time, dancing, singing, watching Minnie and being silly!  Her fortune cookie at lunch was that she was full of energy and always on the go.  I've never seen a more appropriate fortune for anyone.  Caleb spent a lot of the day hanging with Grandma and Grammy, which gave me some much needed one on one time with Kennedy.  We laughed and smiled a lot.  It's days like this that mean so much.

Here's a few photos from Kennedy's birthday celebration.

So excited for her big birthday gift!

More gifts?!?  For me?!?

Bring on the pancakes!

Swimming!  It's almost like being in Florida again! 


Caleb, thanks for letting me have so much time with mama!

Dinner with daddy!

Best. Ice cream. Ever.

Dancing, singing and being silly!!

    Wanted to know whether you'd heard about this guy: http://m.cbsnews.com/fullstory.rbml?catid=57454369&feed_id=29&videofeed=null

    There's also an awesome video about him, which I'm sure you can find via google. It's worth searching for. :-)
