Riley’s Birthday

Standard

March 20th was Riley’s 2nd birthday! This year we made the trip to Memphis to his birthday party.

He can’t figure out who I am. The absent grandma.

The weather was beautiful, breezy but beautiful.

We all came to celebrate, Grandma Sheila and Ben too!

And of course… Kelly.

Just an impromptu family picture.

Riley’s favorite super hero is Spiderman. He calls him “Parker” because Spiderman’s real name is Peter Parker. His mama and daddy had an all Spidey birthday party.

He’s licking the frosting off Spiderman.

He loved that spidey thing.

Dad unpacked a lot of clothes. This got Riley’s attention because it looks like a light saber. It’s really a tube of bubbles!

The little frog captured his attention too. It’s the simple things in life.

The most fun of all is this Spiderman shirt!! Now he can be the hero!

The life-size Darth Vader stole the show, though. Totally cool. It struck Dad’s fancy, on the nose.

Then Kelly pulled out the bubbles had all the kids chasing those shiny, iridescent globes floating through the air. You know how toddlers are. Shiny… floaty… They chased bubbles with such unfailing energy. I had a blast watching it all.

It seems Kelly didn’t get enough of creek wading when she was little. So in she went. She never ceases to surprise me. I thought she was past this stage. (rolls eyes)

Nice picturesque little stream inside the city.

We had a blast topped off with cake and ice cream. It was a great visit with our son and daughter-in law after the birthday boy conked out. Great way to end a great day.

Hope you all enjoy your families in every way.

Thanks for sharing in a little slice of my heaven.

Love,
Jeannene
