The Flabs turned two on the 19th of September and I am just now getting around to posting about it. Todd and I are not the coolest parents and have always kept the kids (and our own) birthdays rather quiet and mellow. My sister-in-law Jeanette thought it was crazy that we weren't doing anything, so she encouraged me to throw together and impromptu lunch at McDonald's with the Spencer Cousins that afternoon.
Duh! What place is better than McDonald's. It was a great idea and Abi had a great time going down the slide and she got some fun little gifts from her cousins.
That evening, Todd and I took the kids to the Mayan for dinner. I have heard good and bad about this place, so I was skeptical at first. However, not only were we impressed...but the kids were too! They couldn't keep their eyes off of the cliff divers and the thunder and rain made them so excited.
I loved it because the "ambiance" noise was so loud you couldn't hear the kids squealing or being annoying. We also got there early enough that we didn't have to wait at all. The food was great and it was just perfect for Abi's birthday.
Something about being two...Abi totally got it this year and it was hilarious watching her opening her presents. My favorite was when she opened a shirt from Grant and Jeanette and she squealed as she opened it, then held it against her chest and proclaimed "it's so pretty!"
