Chapman's Birthday: Part 2

We continued celebrating Chapman's birthday on Saturday. He was awakened by singing & crazy hats (in Penuel family tradition) and enjoyed a cinnamon roll for breakfast. Marmi, Hoosier & Aunt Julie helped us celebrate with fun presents & a trip to Chuck E Cheese for lunch!! It was so much fun...Chapman gobbled up pizza, played games, & enjoyed a birthday cupcake! The theme for the birthday lunch was definitely rock-n-roll!

After a long nap, we headed up to Aunt Jen's house to celebrate with Grammy, Poppi, Aunt Jen, Uncle Bill, Maddie, Jack, Claire, Uncle, & Ana. Yummy enchiladas were perfect for dinner, and once again...cupcakes! Our birthday boy was so sweet to tell everyone thank you for such awesome presents!! Thanks to Aunt Jen for letting us celebrate at her house!

What a perfect day to celebrate our favorite 2-year old, Chapman!!

Happy Birthday Porter!

Chapman's buddy, Porter, celebrated his 2nd birthday & we had a fun playgroup get-together to celebrate! It was so nice to see all of Chapman's friends since we have been in and out of town all summer. Porter's mommy had lots of fun things for the boys including mac 'n cheese & fruit for lunch, cupcakes, balloons & lots of cool toys inside & out. Here are a few snapshots of the boys...we love our playgroup so much!!
