Ok, so I'm back dating this post because I've just been so busy and haven't had the time to post about our amazing little girl's birthday.
Frankie was able to take the time off so we could give as much attention as possible to the birthday girl. Both of us were thinking how hard it is to believe that we have a two year old. It seriously feels like just yesterday that we were at the hospital waiting for things to progress in the labor room so we could welcome our long, long awaited angel. We wanted to give Olivia as much undivided attention as possible, so we asked our good friend Alyssa Yancey to watch JD for a few hours. We decided to take Olivia to the American West Heritage Center after hearing from Hilary and Brad how much fun it was. It was fun.
We got there just ahead of the crowd, but not too soon that we missed the pony rides and train ride which started at 5:00. At the heritage center they had a corn maze, a huge slide down the hill, hay jumping, and little kids maze, pony rides, train rides and animals. We chose not to go into the corn maze because it was chilly and we didn't want Olivia to get bored with just walking around when there was so much more to do. I think that my favorite part was getting to see her ride the pony. At first she was a little apprehensive, but she decided quickly that she liked being on the pony.
After playing at the heritage center, we took Olivia to go and buy her presents. We let her pick out one toy and the rest of the presents that we bought were saved for her birthday party on Sunday.
We didn't do a whole lot, but we sure had a lot of fun celebrating our little girl. I still can't believe that she is two.
