Two Years Old - Already!

Dan and I thought we might go to a movie this evening. I have a couple gift cards for the theater that have been burning a hole in my pocket. But about the time Dan was getting home, we got a call from Chris, inviting us to Skype in to Robert's birthday party this evening. It wasn't even a close call. We can see a movie any old time, but second birthdays only come around once in a little boy's life!

It was such a short time ago that we welcomed baby Robert to the world and to our family. It's hard to believe he'll be two next week.

Here are a few pictures I snapped from the iPad screen as we enjoyed the party. I'm sorry that I missed getting a picture of the cake - a cute 3-D car, hand-made and -decorated by Kelsey.

"Hi Grandma and Grandpa!" We were warmly welcomed by Robert to his party.

After we sang Happy Birthday, Kelsey cut the cake, and Robert took the first bite.

Big sister, Clara, helped open the presents.

A Tonka truck!

Clara clowns around with a mask Robert got as a gift from some of his friends.

Lots of hours of fun ahead with this classy little trike, from Mama and Daddy.

Happy birthday, to our sweet little boy. Virtually-attending is better than not being there at all, but next year I hope to be there in person, to share birthday cake and hugs.
