It’s hard to believe that just two short years ago, this little guy entered our lives.
My mop topped, goofy, sweet and silly nephew Finn turned TWO today. My oh MY how time flies!!
This morning my Mom, Dad, Ben and I drove a couple hours over to Omaha, NE, where my sister-in-law is from, to celebrate the big day.
I don’t know who had more fun –
Finn or all of us, his family and friends, watching his expressions as he tore into oodles of presents,
had an impromptu tissue paper party,
and opened the biggest surprise of the day – a brand new tricyle!
No WAY, Mom!
Check out the features on this thing!
Afterwards we stripped down to our birthday suits (ok, just Finn ) for some lunch.
Sloppy Joes, pasta salad, fresh fruit and some chips & dip.
Then it was time for cake!
ARRGOMPH momph momph – I have never seen a child take a bigger bite. It was the cutest thing I have ever seen!
Want some kizschtn? (That’s Finn’s name for me until he can pronounce his R’s. )
Wheee! I love cake!
La di da,
Oook, and we’re done with that.
While Finn dug into his egg, dairy & nut free cupcakes (food allergies…) the rest of us noshed on the regular variety – MMMM I love any excuse to devour a good cupcake!
Happy Birthday to the light of our lives! We love you so much Finn!
The end of the birthday party coincided with the start of a football game between the state’s biggest rivals – University of Iowa vs Iowa State University. PICK YOUR SIDE!
Not wanting to miss it, my parents, Ben and I stopped by a local bar & grill to catch the last half over a round of beer before heading home.
We’re all die-hard University of Iowa Hawkeye fans.
I won’t go into detail, but the Hawks unfortunately ran into some technical difficulties today.
This is going to be a long season…sigh!
We’re all back home now and are settling in for a low-key night. Lots to do tomorrow! Happy Saturday!
