Happy Second Birthday Lunatic....I mean, Cooper

Cooper,

I'm not sure how this happened but you are 2. Two years ago our lives changed.

We became out numbered.
We went from playing man on man to zone defense.
We became a big family to some.
We became nuts, crazy and insane to others.


To us...
We became better.
We became fuller.
We became happier.
We smile more.
We laugh often.
We snuggle more.
We became us.


You keep us on our toes.
You keep us laughing.
You amaze us everyday.
You have a bigger than life personality.
You are sweet and snugly.
You are smart.


You have great dance moves.
You have a mean slap shot.
You have an infections laugh.
You sing like no other.


We are so in love.
We are lucky.
We are blessed.


We are PERFECT. Thank you.

2nd Birthday Party - Take 3

Another birthday celebration for Cooper on his actual birthday.
Ice cream sundaes with a candle on top.


More spoiling.


Lots of homemade crafts from Riley and Simon.



And what else for the hockey obsessed boy...another hockey stick.

2nd Birthday Party - Take 2

We tend to celebrate birthdays in our house for about a week.

Cooper's second celebration was with Jason's parents.

I made Diego cupcakes for the occasion. I think they turned out to look more like Jason though...black spiky hair, big round head, beautiful smile...sounds like Jason to me.



"Happy Birthday to Diego." Coop still says it's not his birthday, it's Diego's.



More presents for a very spoiled little man.

Great Wolf Birthday Celebration

To celebrate Coop's second birthday we went to the Great Wolf Lodge. We had all had an amazing time. We were joined by Cooper's Godparents and my mom came to join us during the day.

First order of business when we get to a hotel....bed jumping. Nee Nee shows the kids how it's done. And, NO, this isn't how she mangled her hand.


What's a party with out a huge cake?



And balloons...that Cooper took everywhere with him.



Don't forget the party hats.



Happy Birthday song from the staff at the Great Wolf Lodge.

Presents at the Great Wolf Lodge...does it get any better than this?



The beginning of day two....cereal from a box...a childhood favourite.


Riley meets Wiley.


If you have ever been to the Great Wolf Lodge you can appreciate this and know how much time was spent in this spot.


Crafts and fun at the Cub Club.




We spent two full days in the water park. One of the days was almost 7 hours long. We conquered every slide we were tall enough to go on. Even the ones made Riley scream "I AM NEVER DOING THIS AGAIN.'








Thanks S family and Nee Nee for an amazing weekend.
May the forest be with you!
