Happy 2nd Birthday!

The Twincredible Twosome had a fantastic 2nd birthday! I can't believe they are two already! We actually partied and celebrated for three days straight! On Saturday, they had a party at the Pittsburgh Toy Lending Library, which was a blast! We played, had cupcakes, and spent time with our friends and family. Here are some pics of the boys and our friends and family:

Then, on Sunday, we spent the day with our family and went out to lunch and played in the fountains on the South Side again. We finished up the day with cake and ice cream at our house with our family. When we were growing up, my sister, brother and I always had a party with our friends and then another party with family at home, so we are just carrying on a family tradition! One of our close friends made a very special personalized Elmo cake for each of the boys. They were adorable and the boys loved them!

Finally, on Monday, which was their actual birthday, we spent the day at the Children's Museum with my mom, sister and Reid. All three of the boys had a fabulous time, especially in the water room on the 3rd floor. Ross and Riley had never been up to that room before, and they had a blast.

It was a fantastic birthday. I am still in complete and utter amazement that my little miracles are two already. I cannot thank my family enough for helping me to make the boys' special weekend as perfect as it was. My sons are so lucky to have the best Grandma, Aunt, Cousin, and two Uncles in the world! Thank you guys for everything! We love you!
