I jumped right in on the decorating for the party and by the time Grandma showed up to take Katy to dance class it was done. When Ty saw Kaitlyn putting on her coat he grabbed his and we just couldn't disappoint him by leaving him home. So he got to go with Grandma to the building to help set up, and I got a precious few minutes alone to grab a shower and pick up balloons. I arrived at dance class not long before it started so we let Tyler stay and see what did for one song. Yeah, he's not ready for dance class yet. He just wants to jump and run around like he does when Katy turns on her music at home :) So he and I left the girls in peace to finish up class and went home to get the food ready for the party.
The kids party was great - it was a Dump Truck theme (Ty's favorite!). Everyone looked like they were having a lot of fun and things ran very smoothly. They painted cookies, had lunch and "dirt cake" and then had free play time for the rest of the party. It was perfect. (I have posted more details on my craft blog)
Naptime. Dinner. Then we were ready for cake with the grandparents. Tyler and Kate provided the entertainment for the night, and boy did they have us laughing! Typical two year old, we could hardly get Ty to quit playing with one toy long enough to open the next one to once again have to talk him into putting it aside for the next one. The hit of the night was the front loader from Oma Rhonda, which the kids had a fight over before the party was done (that wasn't the funny part).
Grandpa Dennis, Grandma Alene and Wyatt got Ty a brand new set of cowboy boots. You know Ty LOVES boots and he happily tried them on. Then jumped around to show us how they worked.
This was followed by a stick horse race. Kaitlyn had to bring her horse out to show Ty how his new one worked. It was hilarious seeing him try to find the right place on the ear to get it to whinny.
We ended the night with more dirt cake. MMMMM!
