As you know, my little man is obsessed with tractors. Actually to be honest he is in love with anything that has an engine and moves. You name it trucks, trains and airplanes he loves them all. But his first love was tractors and since Papaw is a John Deere supporter on the farm, I decided that would be his theme for his second birthday.
We were actually able to plan his party for the day of his birthday. This never seems to happen with my kids, Saturdays just never fall on their days. But his birthday does fall over fall break, and the weather is so unpredictable.
We planned to host outside the barn, just like last year. But honest to goodness, as soon as it hit 2 o'clock the rain started. We rushed our little stressed out butts around pushing chairs, tables and decorations inside the barn. It was complete chaos for a few minutes which is not how I imagined but B could of cared less as long as he had Charli's gator to sit on.
We had also picked to have a chili bar not realizing the high for the day was 80. Although, it was a great hit and everyone enjoyed it.
Bryar was way to busy to enjoy the chili bar or hot dogs. Although, he was completely ready to play in his cupcake.
Bryar mainly wanted to spend his day playing, so after gifts were opened we let him play away with his friends. We had shelled corn in sandboxes and the water table along with tractors. That was probably the biggest hit of the day.
We have party favors of tractor cookie/sandwich cutters. They had tags that I found online on Birthday Express' blog that could be customized and were free to print. We added the text of "Thank you for being a "Deere" friend. I love party favors that are useful and will not be thrown to the side. My kids love sandwiches that are in shapes. If you do this as a favor, I recommend buying in bulk from eBay.
When the party wrapped up we enjoyed extra time with family. It always seems that cleaning up goes much raiser than setting up.
I love these two photos. The first one is 3 generations; Papaw, Daddy and Bryar.
The party was such fun for us all thanks to our friends and family.
Bryar and Charli Beth took the easy ride home. Within a minute of everyone leaving our home, Bryar fell over asleep. He woke up in the best mood ever then went to bed very easy and slept until 10. Either he really enjoyed his tractor birthday or being two is very rough on the little guy!
