Happy 2nd Birthday Grandson!

We visited Oakland, California for a big birthday bash for our grandson. We were excited about decorating for his theme of “Cars and Trucks and Things that Go”. My sister and brother came to the party too. My brother all the way from the Chicago area.
These were all the decorations we brought with us!

My sister in California also made fancy banners to say Happy Birthday and to hang around the room.

And my son made a cool race track for the kids out of pool noodles.

The Lowly Worms were great party favors and the goldbug hunt was quite successful too.

All the extra characters for the Brio wooden train set were a big hit. Several kids stopped by this table to play with it.

We drew goldbugs on the toddlers hands with non-toxic white board markers and yellow body paint.

We had as much fun as the kids! They had a ride-on vehicle race and it was so silly! The little ones hardly knew to go around the track. But they were so cute. They were awarded 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes of Busytown plush characters.
I’m so glad we could celebrate this amazing birthday for our sweet grandson with the family.
