I wanted to make sure that Cole had a super fun birthday so it snowed for us just in time! I was only worried because there's another wedding reception tomorrow (I really shouldn't even be writing this post....) and it's been really busy here. But when we woke up yesterday on Cole's birthday, the very first thing we did was put our snow gear on (Cole is literally wearing four layers.) and we headed outside. At first he refused to wear the new hat and mittens I got for him for his birthday (so perfect for snow!!!!) but after falling down a few times he decided the snow didn't feel too hot on his little fingers. I'm so glad he decided to let me put his hat and mittens on him because I thought he looked so cute in them :) He helped daddy and grandpa shovel the driveway, got into everything in the garage and played a little basketball.

Once the mittens warmed up his fingers, he was all about going exploring in the woods which is also Steve's parents' backyard. The deer would get so close to us and the boys had fun pointing them out and sneaking up on them :) Cole wasn't so sure about sledding though. He went down once with Steve and then he was over it which surprised me; I thought he would have been more into it. I guess it scared him!

By 10 am, we had already spent two hours out in the snow, with plenty of day left. He took at 3 and a half hour nap, I was able to help out with the wedding preparations and in the evening we went to Cafe Rio for his birthday dinner. I just really wanted Cole to have a fun day and I think he really did after rocking out to Imagine Dragons and Fun in the car. That little boy really loves a song with a beat :) We topped the day off with a helium balloon for him to play with which he looooved and cupcakes and presents! He probably really got spoiled but what can you expect when you're at grandma and grandpa's? ;)

I just hope he knows how much we love him. He is everything to us and we're so glad he's ours. Happy second birthday munchkin man! We love you!
