I feel like this age gets a bad rap … and personally Mitchell and I think they should be called the “terrific twos.”
Yes, she has meltdowns.
Yes, she can be incredibly stubborn.
But holy hannah, she is so much fun.
To be honest, we didn’t really get anything for her birthday – unless you count a cheap thrift store puzzle.
So we thought we would fill her day with fun, beginning with a trip to a German bakery for some donuts.
We then headed over to the Discovery Children’s Museum.
And then finished off the night at a fair with some friends. This fair was Winter’s heaven … a noisy heaven filled with greasy fair food, sweaty teenagers and rides aplenty.
She was not okay with the length of the rides.
I showed Winter a blog post a while ago and she became obsessed with the animal masks
She would ask to see the “kitty mask” daily. I wanted to get everyone animal masks to wear for her birthday but just couldn’t justify the cost. So we settled on some party animals on her cake instead.
I really think her favorite part of the day was everyone singing Happy Birthday to her. In fact, she made everyone sing it a second time.
