Ice Cream Social

Bogie had an ice cream social on Saturday. I went back and forth on whether or not to do a party, so in the end, I tried to do a small get together. Somehow it didn't turn out so small. The boy has got a lot of friends. (He's a Dunbar, they're really popular in these parts.)

Here is the table mostly set up. And little man trying to figure out what he wants.
"Ummmm, I think I'll take one of these..."
Then I got this fabulous idea from Nancy who had a Bakery Party, and she played "Pin the Cherry on the Cupcake." I just tweaked it and turned mine into an icecream cone. This is what your game looks like when you decide to put it together the night before at 10pm.
I know, cherries are red, but all my red paper was gone. Of course, I didn't discover this until it was too late. Ah, well. The kids had fun.

My brother is the one, who walked around the party taking pictures. He took like a gazillion. Which I am so thankful for. He also did that on my wedding day and now I have pictures of everyone who attended. (Thanks Adam!) Of course 200 pictures were of his little guy.

We did the pinata  (which will get  its own post tomorrow) before we had cupcakes, that's why Bogie's got a sucker in his mouth. It didn't stop him from digging into a cupcake. I paid for that mistake all day Sunday.

Bogie got wheels. Our "river" friends got him the jet ski. It's so cool.
Monkey decided he needed more icecream towards the end of the party. This is how we found him. Lovely.
I'm still in shock that Bogie is TWO.
