Birthday Party Ideas for a 2 Year Old

{This post is a little later than I like to be with my post. It's been a challenging week: my week first began with writer's block then all of us got sick, again. :( Nothing serious just another cold. I really thought once summer was here we be cold free for a while...any ways here I am with apologies.} 

I am currently working on designing my son's 2nd birthday party. We were away last year for his first birthday so I want to give him a big one this year. 

Venue: Our Backyard (minus the laundry)

Time:  Late Afternoon - After nap time to avoid any meltdowns

Theme: Still on the fence but it's probably going to be Toy Story Inspired. My son just loves those movies.

Cake: I already own a T-Rex dinosaur cake pan (a great find I picked up at a yard sale) that I will make into the character Rex from the movies.  
Partysaurus Pan from Wilton

Games: Still working on the antenna on the alien, guess how many army guys are in the jar, maybe a piƱata...

Party Favours: Still working on it....searching for lots of options on Pinterest

Theses a just a few ideas. Check out my pinterest page to see more of my ideas

Stay tuned for party pictures in three weeks.

Trip to Newfoundland: Bonavista & Upper Amherst Cove

The highlight of this trip, besides seeing my mom, family and my best friend which is always a highlight, was going back to the town where my dad grew up and the surrounding towns where I spent most holidays, long weekends, and two weeks every summer. 

First, we (meaning my mom, my son, and myself) went to the town of Bonavista, Newfoundland where we stayed at this beautiful inn called The Harbour Quarters Inn. (Bonavista is a fishing community of approximately 4000 people.) 

Second place we visited was the town, Upper Amherst Cove, Newfoundland, where my dad grew up. Lots of memories in this place. My family spent many holidays and summers there. The population of Upper Amherst Cove is about 35 people. The below picture was taken on our way to supper at the Bonavista Social Club The food there was amazing. I had the most mouth watering moose burger with delectable, homemade potato chips. 

This shot I wanted to show you is more of an artistic shot, where I am looking through a clothes line out towards the ocean. I also wanted to show that the sun does shine in Newfoundland and the weather was beautiful for the majority of my trip.
