a goldfish birthday party

I'd been planning Collins's birthday party for many months! I went back and forth on the party theme, but Camp came up with the fish theme and I went with it!!! I picked orange and turquoise as the party colors and had an absolute blast planning every little detail! 

Adam and I decided to keep the party small and only invite our immediate family...we wanted to be able to enjoy the evening and not be too stressed about throwing a huge party! :) We wanted it to be all about Collins and to celebrate this sweet boy!! Celebrate we did!! Bebe was able to fly down again this weekend for the party and that was such a special treat. I think Collins had a blast at his party and that's all that matters!!!

I found this goldfish bath toy in Collins's toy bucket and put it aside months ago so I could use it for a party decoration. :) I found this glass fish bowl at Hobby Lobby and decided I'd put turquoise gum balls in it with the goldfish on top. I was so happy with the way it turned out! 

I made orange cupcakes with turquoise icing and found the adorable cupcake toppers on Etsy.

sweetest brothers!

seems like yesterday that Camp was doing this same thing at his 1st birthday party!

Trip took this picture of our family and I love it. 

Collins wanted to be outside during his party!! Here he is trying to stand up by himself. 

I had all of Collins's monthly pictures up...

Looking at these pictures just puts a smile on my face. 

Trip and Carly 

We had Bradley's sausage dogs, macaroni & cheese, coleslaw, and fruit for dinner...then it was time for dessert!!

This boy loves cupcakes!! :) 

big brother was able to help him blow out the candle

poor buddy kept putting his bib in his mouth to get every last bite of icing! :)

sweet kisses from collins!

time for presents...after a quick bath!!

the four wheeler from Trip was a HIT!!!

Trip also got Collins a camo tank top (sends shivers down my spine!!!!) but Camp thought it was pretty awesome so he put it on. He also wore it to bed and wore it all day today. It's a size 18 months! :)

Silly boy!

What a sweet night celebrating our sweet boy!!!!
