happy birthday gavin!! our weekend...

our city had their city celebration last week. we enjoyed the carnival, parade, and more! gavin thought it was pretty cool that they did it all for him and his birthday! :)
these first pics are from our friday night carnival fun...

the boys LOVED this slide..especially gavin!
bjorn & gavin riding the boats...all three of 'em...

HaPpY bIrThDaY gAvIn!!!!! my little boy turned TWO on saturday!! we started his birthday off with the city parade...
oooooing and ahhhhing over the big fire truck :)... and back to the carnival again!... grandma becky, kim, & travis came to see gavin on his big day. here's gavin running up to them right after he saw them. so cute...i freakin' love this picture..isn't it hilarious?! kaden was so proud of the goldfish he won at the fish toss game {with daddy's help}. LOVE IT...and as i always say, a carnival just isn't a carnival without cotton candy! man, i love that stuff!...
here's kaden coming out of a slide...
and the big slide with kim and travis!...
they brought gavin a birthday gift...
a scooter! gavin LOVED it!...
our cute little kaden...
another pic of the boys going down the big slide with kim & trav {can you tell what their favorite thing to do/ride was?}... ben & kaden, going up!... gavin wouldn't leave his new scooters' side :)...after some carnival fun we came home for naps and birthday cake {well, cupcakes}! here we are singing to gav...
here's a closer look at the cupcakes i made for him. we're having a big circus birthday party for gavin & kaden in a few weeks {i'm combining their parties this year}, but we still wanted to do something special on gavin's actual birthday. gavin loves elmo..so naturally, i made him some elmo cupcakes :)...blowing out his candles... mmmm, a gumball!... and here's the birthday boy and his present from mommy, daddy, and kaden. he loved it, and climbed right in!...kaden pushing gavin around the house :)...and of course, kaden had to try it out too :)...
after our little celebration at home we headed over to ben's parents house for more celebrating. gav and jessica share a birthday! so we were able to celebrate jess' b-day too! AND..seth {ben's bro} graduated from high school last week! so we celebrated his graduation as well! it was a night full of fun!
here's jess & gav with jessica's birthday cupcakes i made... a close up of the cuppy's. they're 'juicy' cupcakes! i made the toppers myself {printed and cut out the juicy logo and everything..hehe}. jess love's 'juicy' so that's why i made them...and here's setharoo being cool with his guitar :)...
seth's graduation cap cupcakes! you know me, any chance i can get {yes, these were the third batch i made in one day..hehe}!little gavin chowin' down on a big cuppy :)... kati, seth, athena & aries. it was so good to see you guys, we're so glad you came. and THANKS for the YUMMY pork!!!... seth holding his cupcakes under his congratulations sign...the bbq was great! thanks larry and darla! happy birthday jess, and congratulations seth!
on the way home kenzie wanted to go to the the carni ONE LAST TIME :). so i took her for the last 1/2 hr it was open...
here's some pics i took as we were walking around...so...happy birthday gavin! we love you so much! can i just say that gavin is such a sweetheart...anyone who knows what his voice sounds like knows what i'm talking about {i'm not kidding, it's the sweetest voice ever!}. he's my little love bug. i hope you had a good birthday gavers!
