A Mermaid Tale: 2nd Birthday Party

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons X2

27 Jan

I am going to go back 2 weeks because I skipped last week’s (not enough pictures since I was so busy getting ready for Kyler’s birthday).

29 Weeks!

My first real go at decorating cookies….not too bad!

This girl loves her rocks. No clue why but she has a great time collecting them in the backyard.

We celebrated Kyler’s 2nd birthday on Saturday. More pictures to come!

Kyler’s new wardrobe dress-up set

On Sunday, her actual birthday, we took her to the Tampa Lowry Zoo.

Blowing out her candle (thanks to Google+ for making it move like this!)

She was so proud of herself for blowing out the candle that we sang Happy Birthday 4 times 🙂

Playing dress-up before bed…. crazy kid.

We had a GREAT weekend celebrating out big girl but I can’t lie and say I am looking forward to resting up a little bit 🙂 Chris’s parents are in town so it will be nice to spend time with them. Have a great week!
