We had people hanging out in the living room, on the back porch, in the backyard, and even in the front yard (which almost never happens!
Some of the kids hopped in the baby pool, and they did some dancing on the back porch, too.
We even got everyone together to sing "Happy Birthday" to Eleanor, which was no small feat!
Overall we had a great time!
Eleanor opened a couple gifts from family after all the friends left and before she took her nap, including this gorgeous quilt from my grandparents and a new "baby doll" that she is making sure Maynard gets to know very well.
We ended up not doing cake until the following night because Chris had a prior activity planned that evening already. Cake was a quieter affair, and as she can now use a fork, it wasn't quite as eventful as last year! She still had some pretty good facial expressions that almost match Erika's birthday cake experience from last year and those from her first birthday.
Happy 2nd birthday, sweet Eleanor!
