Ronin Turns 2 + A Non Themed Birthday Party...What?!

Thursday, June 12, 2014

Over the weekend we celebrated my littlest man's second birthday.  I cried like a baby the night before because like most mothers say...I just couldn't believe it.   I decided that for this birthday I was not going to stress about a theme and a giant expensive party and I just wanted us all to enjoy the day with all the things that my two year old loves.  Now don't get me wrong I still love a good ole themed birthday party but sometimes it's nice to just not worry about all those little details and just savor the day.

Here are a few pictures from Ronin's 2nd Birthday...


The birthday boy got his very first real bike.  He soon figured out that he had to push the pedals by himself to make it actually work.  He threw a giant fit when I made him wear his new helmet as we went for a test drive around our neighborhood but hey what's a morning (birthday or not) without a tantrum?



I let my OCD clean freak take a nap in the closet and the boys made a mess while we made birthday cupcakes.  Best little helpers ever.


Cupcake decorating courtesy of Ronin.  If you are my neighbor and you are reading...don't worry this cupcake was not yours ;)



All of our family was there when we sang Happy Birthday...and even though Ronin is not the spotlight kinda person I know he enjoyed every minute of it.  Happy 2nd Birthday Ronin!

It looks like you guys had a great time, theme or not! Themed birthday parties at this age are more for the parents and photo opps than anything! Kids just remember balloons and cakes!

How precious! Happy belated birthday to your little boy! I love the idea of not having a theme for a party. It's just as good with good company and lots of love all around. Mission accomplished there!
