Taya's Birthday!

Holy moly my baby girl turned 2! It's crazy how time seems
to just fly by sometimes! Anyways, we had a great party day!
The kids and I drove in to Phoenix to meet Mike for lunch.
We went to Peter Piper Pizza. The kids had a blast!

You know, every now and then you just get that perfect
cheesy grin pic.

Here's Taya on the train (choo choo)!

That evening we had a little birthday bash at our house.
Jesse, Jaymie and Henslee came over.

We made Monkey's favorite treat (aka: bananas with peanut
butter and chocolate chips). Super tasty!

Dillon really enjoyed the chocolate chips. In fact he couldn't
even smile at the camera he was so busy eating. :)

Opening presents

She was pretty excited about everything!

More presents

This was the climax...

...Tada!...a kitchen! She also got some clothes (the hat
she's wearing) a super stylish pair of boots, accessories for
the kitchen and a cozy coupe car.

This is the monkey cake. I was pretty proud of how it
turned out. (notice the 2 candles in the bottom left corner)

Taya is wearing her favorite PJ's, her monkey ones. These
were the inspiration for the theme of the party and the cake.

Attempting to blow out the candles!

Hooray, her very own cozy coupe. Dillon got one when he
turned 2 and Taya loves it. They are always fighting over his
so we decided she needed her own. And it's pink! Now they can
both cruise around in the back yard together!

We had a super fun time! Thanks so much to Jesse, Jaymie, and
Henslee for coming and celebrating with us. Taya had a great day!
She is so much fun to have in our family. She loves to play with her
big brother, she is talking up a storm and she loves to sing.
We love her very much! Happy Birthday Taya!
