Dane's Second Birthday Festivities

Unfortunately these photos are terribly out of order and I don't know how to fix it! I was so excited to spend a good deal of my little man and Godson's birthday with him. He was anticipating it for the whole month by constantly asking us to "Sing Happy" to him. What a sweet guy. We woke up early and went to the Zoo. He is talking so much so it was so fun to spend that time with him getting so excited about all of the animals.

After a great zoo trip and a nap we went to the Magic House for the evening. My work had the place rented out so I invited all the kiddos. Everyone was able to come except for Joe and they had a blast playing together. By the end of the evening Dane was pooped, but he undoubtedly had a wonderful day.

One of the original Magic House exhibits...Goodnight Moon
Dane was not wanting a picture with Aunt Katie at the end of it all
Dane had a great time with his Papa at the zoo. They both loved laughing at the penguins.
The penguins would zip by and Dane and papa would point as they went.
He even liked getting splashed by them.
Riding the carousel
Petting the stingrays. His arm was too short to ever actually make contact.
Petting the goats
The hippo.
My dad really wanted me to sit in the hippo for a picture, but I was having none of that.
He even got to play in the sprinklers.
But was so confused when they turned off.
He would watch and then run to them as they sprung back up..of course giggling.
He could not get enough of this jeep. He kept saying "Jeep Mommy, Jeep"
My dad did talk me into a picture of the frogs.

Making a wish in the fountain
He LOVED riding on the train with his Papa
Back to a few Magic House pics:

Dane really needed those crescent rolls, so he climbed up into the fridge.

All in all an incredible day! I know Dane loved it. I am so glad I was able to spend so much of his second birthday with him and some of my other favorite people!
