Choos Choos and Tutus

We celebrated Cade and Camdyn's second birthdays last weekend.  We had to wait a few weeks after their birthday to have their party because our weekends have been so crazy busy.  I found these cute invitations on etsy and decided to do "Choos Choos and Tutus" as the theme after seeing it.  I thought the invitation turned out so cute.

I also ordered these adorable train shirts for the kids off of etsy.  They go in their birth order with Brenna as the train engine, Camdyn as a train car, and Cade as the caboose (by 1 minute).  I just love these shirts!

When we got to the park, I was really disappointed.  I had spent days making cute decorations for the party and had stayed up until 1 AM the night before preparing for it only to get there and realize I wasn't going to be able to put ANY of my decorations out.  It was cool and very, very windy - so windy that table covers wouldn't stay on and we couldn't even unwrap the balloons.  If you remember my post about Brenna's Rapunzel party, you know that I like to decorate for parties and make things look really cute.  Instead, the cupcakes sat in the tupperware I brought them in and everything else stayed stored in a big plastic tub.  My dad could see how disappointed I was that the party was not turning out at all how I had planned it.  He told me I should be happy because the important part was that we were having a party!  As much as I was disappointed that I couldn't have the cute party I planned, the important part was that we were there celebrating our twins birthdays.  They won't remember if it looked cute or not anyways.

Here Camdyn and I are waiting for the train ride.

Here are the cupcake toppers I made for the cupcakes that were supposed to be sitting on a pretty cupcake display on top of a pink-covered table with balloons.  Just imagine the cuteness.

Here are the cupcake toppers I made that were supposed to be sitting on another cute cupcake stand on a blue-covered table with animal cookie trains lined up holding more balloons.

Brenna loved the train ride.

Camdyn trying to do flips like her cousin Brylee.  How cute is that with her tutu sticking up?

Camdyn fell asleep in the car as soon as we left the party.

At least the kids had fun with the balloons at home.  They played with the balloons for probably an hour!  They both learned a new word "boon" for "balloon." 

We reserved this train for our whole party to take a train ride around the park.  I think all the kids had a lot of fun riding the train.  We were happy so many of our friends and family were able to come celebrate with us.

Happy Birthday!! Sorry your weather didn't cooperate for the party. Everything looked so cute, though. And the train... well, that is so AWESOME!
