Monday 13th May 2013, the day we celebrated our little Gracie's second birthday. After a late night full of baking, wrapping and decorating the time was finally here... it was time to go into my daughter's bedroom and get my TWO year old from her cot.
We went into her room full of beans, singing 'Happy Birthday' at the top of our voices, Gracie sat there, looking confused, blissfully unaware of our excitement and emotions and we picked her up and wished her a happy birthday.
The hubster carried her downstairs, where she was greeted by a pile of presents, some from us and some from family and friends but first we had to have breakfast (much to Gracie's disappointment).
After breakfast it was time to open the presents, one by one Gracie tore the paper off her presents and as she did she proudly held her new gifts up to show us.
Then it was time for us to head out for the day, we had decided months ago that the three of us would go to Sundown Adventureland on her birthday, however the weather had been so rubbish on the run up that we had been debating whether we should or shouldn't go but in the end we decided we would.
Sundown Adventureland is a theme park designed for under 10's based in Nottinghamshire, the park is made up of several different themed areas and includes lots of different buildings for the children to explore most of which include interactive features.
There is also a number of outdoor play areas.
And the best bit (in my opinion anyway) is the rides!
On the whole the weather wasn't too bad however it did rain quite heavily at one point so we headed into one of the indoor soft plays.
Finally it was time for home, and I think we were all pretty pooped - some of us more than others.
But once home the celebrating didn't stop there, family and friends came round, more presents were opened, candles were blown out and cake was eaten.
If your little one has just had a birthday then how did you celebrate? or if you have a birthday coming up what are your plans? I would love to hear all about it :) xxx
