Quinn’s 2nd birthday party was a huge success! Our little guy had such a great time. Many, many thanks to all of the family and friends who made it a special day for him!
We originally planned to have his party outside in our backyard, but it ended up raining, so we moved things inside.
Our “Plan B” actually ended up working out really well since we had so many kids at the party and they loved playing in Quinn’s playroom. New toys at someone else’s house = THE BEST.
Hi, Finn! We joke that he and Quinn will start their own law firm someday: “Finn & Quinn, Attorneys at Law.”
Eventually, the rain slowed down and the kiddos (and adults) were able to play outside. Water tables = also THE BEST.
Then, it was time for pizza, which is one of Quinn’s favorite foods. He also loves birds, so a pizza + bird-themed party made perfect sense.
And did you see the adorable custom banners at the start of this blog post?! Amazing, right? Kate from SunflowerPaperie (her Etsy shop is the cutest thing ever) made them, and she’s giving away two banners to two CNC followers on Instagram, so be sure to pop over for details!
Once everyone had their fill of pizza, it was time for the most amazing birthday cake ever created. Seriously. My sister had it made at BJs, and I still can’t get over it. Everyone at the party loved it, too!
Happy 2nd birthday, sweet boy!
Quinn was so excited to blow out his candles and tried to get closer to the cake…
… only to put his hands right into the frosting. Oops! The poor kid was so distraught about it.

We cleaned Quinn up (he doesn’t like his hands “dirty” at all) and then distracted him with another birthday candle.
All better. He was totally happy after that.
And, of course, Quinn loved eating his birthday cake (with a knife – Parents of the Year)!
The rest of the party was kind of a blur (we had a full house for sure!), but we managed to snap a family photo before saying goodbye. #nailedit
