Evan’s 2nd Birthday Party
My friend Patti moved to Arizona a few months ago with her husband Chris and son Evan. Patti’s mom lives in Salinas still, so she decided to throw Evan’s birthday party here. She flew in and stayed for about a week.
The theme for the birthday party was goldfish. I helped her make decorations using my Silhouette Cameo, which i hadn’t used since Vinny’s party! We made the fishes on the wall, lil flags that went on everyone’s drink straw, favor tags, and a “Happy 2nd Birthday Evan” pennant banner.
The party was held at Roundtable Pizza in Marina — right across from where i used to live when i was going to college. I had forgot it was even there! I miss Marina sometimes… mostly the beach, but not ever the foggy weather!
Anyway, when we got to the party, we were actually on time! But Patti was still setting up and Evan was still taking his nap. Here the dessert /favor table. Patti bought the top cake and the cupcakes — i thought they turned out super cute! Favors where goldfish crackers!
Vinny had fun running around the party room and trying to escape into the parking lot.
When Evan got up from his nap, he yelled “fishie”!! Guess he likes them! He kept saying it and pointing to the decorations as the night went on — it was pretty darn cute.
Evan was nice and shared his toys with Vinny – they had fun playing together.
Vinny really loved that retro car, and a bouncy ball that light up when you bounced it.
Vinny loved riding on the Spiderman toy. Well he didnt really ride the ride, but he got to sit on it! Maybe next time. He looks like he’s ready to take on the world.
Cute family pic!
Earlier in the week when Patti was visiting us at our house, Vinny kept going up to her and “patting” her on the back then running away laughing. It was hilarious — ive never seen him to do that to anyone!
The boys had a lot of fun running around together and stealing each other’s toys!
They also ganged up on Butters! (But unfortunately i didnt get a good pic of them together)
Hope to see you guys again soon! It was a fun visit.
