Joshua's choo! choo! Party

Joshua has been in love with Thomas the Train for quite some time now, so we decided to do a train party for his 2nd birthday.

He's getting so old!!

Our "family picture." Joshua wasn't too keen on staying still so this was the best we got. Mary's open mouth is just a bonus...

Josh LOVES to read, a trait that makes him a definite Stoutner, according Mary. He even preferred to read his new train book to eating cake and ice cream!

For one of the activities we had the kids color pictures of different trains from Thomas and Friends.

Here is the cake that Mary made with help from her friend Erin, very nice.

We kept it a pretty small party, Joshua's first kiss, Lizzy, Matt and Amy's son Matthew, Erin's kids, and Helaman and Lipa's kids.

Matthew's not so sure about the coloring...

The next activity planned was a fun bowling game with pictures of different Thomas trains stuck to plastic bottles. Joshua, however, was too excited about the pictures to let anyone play...

...Lizzy was ready to bowl...

Joshua decided to march right through the ring around the rosie...

And presents....Joshua was not as excited as some of his friends were to open the presents, but he LOVED all of them!

...a picture of Mathoni and Rita...just because we can....

Joshua was so excited with the fire truck toy from Mary's mom that Ben had to put it together while he was on it!

It was a hit with all of the kids.

Joshua knows how to blow out candles (he blew out a few of Mommy's candles on her birthday), but he couldn't quite get these to blow out...
We can't believe our little Joshy is 2 years old already!!!

Wow! He looks so big. I like the appropriate new boarder on your blog. I can't wait to see him.

What an awesome party! Great job on the cake Mary! Well done.

And I love Joshy's overalls!

I LOVE the last picture of him blowing out his candles. You need to frame that ....or save it for when he gets his Eagle Scout..and you do a video montage. Precious!!!

What a cute kid. Robby loves reading books too, so maybe it's a McGiffin trait also.
