Alden turns two

My grandson, Alden celebrated his two year old mark this week. Notice, he still is attached to his paci after his nap. We celebrated right after his afternoon nap!
We gave him a Monkey Card of course!! He is a little monkey , himself.
While He opened a big present his sister played with some stickers and some books we brought her.
She showed us how she could read and sound out words. She even had a special bandaid ;-) When the guests arrived limbo was the first activity.
Then it was time fro sprinkler fun. Alden got a child sprinkler , hand made by an Aunt and Uncle. He discovered he could stand right in the middle of it and not get too wet. Notice his very serious expression!

Pool fun was next --they used sponges to toss at each other, but were very interested in climbing the slide.

The sponge relay was simply grand. The girls and boys tied each other the first time. Alden absolutely loved this game.
Fishing was next on the agenda. They caught play dough and stickers.

A treasure hunt was next and they followed clues until the treasure was discovered in the tub! There was a large Bubble Wand for everyone.

So of course it was outside for a bit of Bubble time while the mom's helped get the food ready.

Alden had a fire engine cake designed by his mom.

Lots of good food.

The Oreo wheels were the best!

Officially two!

A beautiful sunset on the ride back home from the celebration.
