Grace's 2nd Birthday Party

Grace's birthday isn't for 10 more days, but my mom has a convention she goes to every year on the weekend before her birthday, and the weekend after her birthday is the 4th of July, so for the past two years Grace has gotten an extra early party, and she doesn't seem to mind this at all!

She bounced and played and had a BALL!

Eating some of the yummy food, like "straw-babies" as Grace says.

Her favorite people were there, like Nana and Maw Maw

and Gigi and Pop-Pop

and Grand Dad! Nanny, I don't know how we didn't get a picture of you and Grace. Thank you for all your help with food!!
Grace loved hanging out with her party guests at her new table and chairs (thanks Nanny!)...

For dinner, we had a crawfish boil!

Time for cake!

Notice the outfit change - it poured earlier in the day and that made for a messy time on the jumper!

Grace got lots of great presents, lots of babydolls and some big things from her grandparents like this water table from Grand Dad and Nana, a slide from Nanny and a four wheeler from Gigi and Pop-Pop. Don't worry - I think it tops out at 2 miles per hour!
I especially enjoyed seeing my AOII big sister, Tabatha, and her sweet girl, Claire Grace. They drove down from Fort Payne and we had so much fun playing with the girls!

The birthday girl was exhausted by the end of the party and slept until 9:00 this morning!

Days like this I'm reminded how blessed we are to have such a wonderful family and great friends! We're so thankful to them for celebrating Grace's 2nd birthday with us and for being a part of our lives. We love you!!

I am so sad we missed Grace's party! We tried to drive really fast Saturday to get back from the beach but too many potty breaks from Mal kept us from getting there. Happy Birthday, Grace!!!
