Paxton turns TWO!

Yesterday my boy turned TWO years old!  We had such an incredibly busy day filled with tons of fun and friends.

I planned a pool party and had the back yard decked out with lights and lanterns, we rented and set up a bunch of tables and chairs, we had lots of outdoor games, the sprinkler, baby pool, sand and water table and buckets of squirt guns, bubbles, chalk and sparklers.  And of course it rained.  Thanks Florida. But, even though the weather didn't cooperate we still had a wonderful day celebrating our sweet boy!

First thing in the morning Paxton got to open up presents sent from friends and family.  He sure was spoiled! He got a ton of super fun new things!

I once again did not take pictures during the party, but here are some I took right before people started to arrive.  I forgot to take pictures of our pretty outdoor setup though.

On the entry way table I had a sign that said "Welcome to our pool party.  Please pick out a lei and jump in!" I had a picture of Pax from every month this past year.  And the party favors were a beach set, bubbles and a beach ball.

I have a major sweet tooth.  And I miiiiiight have gone completely overboard with the birthday cakes. I got not one, but TWO birthday cakes.  I made cupcakes, brownies and cake batter truffles as well.  

The bar.  We had prosecco, assorted beers, Jones sodas, Izzy's, and those blue pitchers are a cocktail I found on Pinterest made with vodka, blue curacao and lemonade.  Yummy! 

Food table!

Pax and his sweet friend Zach.
Happy birthday dear Paxton.  Happy birthday to you!!!

The party started at 4 and eventually the rain stopped around 7ish and we were able to go out back.  A friend brought their corn hole game and a few people even got in the pool.  After Paxton went to bed we all stayed up late sitting out back enjoying the nice night.  It was such a fun day!

Oh wow, this 2nd birthday bash looks just amazing. That yummy party food is my favorite part of this party. You know my daughter’s 1st birthday is in June so we are going to host a wonderful outdoor party for her. If you have any suggestions for some cool San Francisco venues then please share!!
