Jack turns 2!

I can't believe my little man is 2!  I love Jack so much, his personality, laugh, and smile, melt my heart everyday.  He IS a stinker sometimes...lately he HATES to have his diaper changed or get dressed.  Aaaand he climbs out of his crib if he's in time-out.  Dang.  He's obsessed with wearing his footy pajamas and playing with trains.  He is such a sweety though, still so gentle with Jonah, and him and Sophie are just best buds.  He is saying new words everyday, still can't understand him most of the time, but it's getting better.  The funniest thing is that he is such a copycat with his older sisters, he always wants to be a part of everything they are doing.  

We celebrated Jack's 2nd birthday this past weekend and it was oh so fun.  We'd had plans for awhile to head down to St. George over his birthday weekend and my parents actually flew into St. George on Thursday to meet us there.  York's parents were planning to drive down on Friday afternoon, but SLC got hit with a big snow storm and they couldn't make it.  It was pretty cold in St. George, but we still had a fun time, and it was so great spending Jack's birthday weekend with KC Grandma and Grandpa! I seriously love this age.  Jack had a blast when we went to Disneyland last month and he had so much fun celebrating his birthday.  It's like they have no idea what to expect so when it happens, its so special.  From here on out there will always be the potential to be let down, since they will be able to anticipate what's coming, but at 2, it's all a surprise.  Since he had so much fun, and since Chip and Colleen couldn't make it down, I decided last minute to have a little shin-dig at our place for all the cousins when we got home.  It was super fun and I was pretty proud of myself for throwing together his party in about 24 hours:).  

On our drive down to St. George...

We went to Zion one day and had lunch at Oscars...

And got a few pics...it was rainy and cold but I have never seen Zion in the fall, so beautiful!



We also went to see Wreck-It Ralph, such a cute movie and Jack sat on my mom's lap and didn't move a muscle the ENTIRE movie, he just loved it!


We also went swimming at the Washington City rec pool...
And had a lil party for our cutest 2 year old!




He got a lil emotional when we sang happy birthday!










Sharing his new toys with baby brother...






And here is his "Thomas the Train" or "Choo-Choo" party that we had at home.  He is SO into trains right now.  He got a remote control Thomas train from my parents and a Thomas train track set from York's parents.  He is always carrying them around the house, he just loves them!


We ran around one morning ordering cake and cooking and getting decorations and food to make for the party.  I used a couple things from his pirate party last year and had some of the stuff (like the mason jars) already at home.  

Ok, ok, not to brag, BUT I made this cute lil "snack train" and put chips, goldfish, apples, oranges, and carrots in it for the kids to eat during the party.  I borrowed his new Thomas from my parents to use at the front.  I used black mechanical tape to make "tracks" on the tablecloth thanks to inspiration on pinterest:)








Thanks to everyone that helped make Jack's 2nd birthday so perfect!  Happy birthday Jack, we love you so much! xoxo
