The last part of our journey was back in Pinckneyville at Great-Grandma and Grandpa Dempsays. It was awesome to be able to show my little ones memories from my childhood.
He is now obsessed with tractors, trucks, and boats – really anything involved with transportation.
What is not included in this picture is Brooks’ naked body. I had taken a shower, gotten out and couldn’t find Brooks. I found him on the back porch with Great – Grandma naked eating pears from her tree.
One of the benefits of being woken up at 6am or early every morning.
Brooks developed a bad habit while we were gone.
And now the party. We had a family party to celebrate the 2nd birthday of the cutest choo-choo boy I know.
I had seen a blog on creating a Thomas birthday without a lot of Thomas. I loved it. My mom, Aunt, and me spent most of the day on Saturday trying to get it all together. It really turned out adorable and he had a great time.
We had several jars of candy on the treats table. I would say that Brooks snuck candy the entire party, but hey, it was his party. Turns out he really likes Sour Cherries.
Great-Grandma Clark with two great-grandbabies. Sawyer is 2 weeks older than Silas.
Great-Grandpa Dempsay. My Silas was named after his Grandfather Silas.
Brooks got a lot of rides on golf carts. No wonder he loves cars.
Finally a family shot with everyone looking and no one throwing a fit. Thank You Illinois family and friends for hosting us! We had a wonderful time!
When we got home, we had our own party on his real birthday.
