The cake was one of the most intensively frustrating ones that I have ever made. But it got done.
Rerun was entranced by it – which was nice to see, after all the work I’d put into it.
He was super excited about having a party all about him, and was more than happy to open presents.
However, Rerun was into tearing very tiny pieces off the wrapping paper, so unwrapping presents took a while.
Plus he had to play with or admire every single gift right after he opened it. Ane gave him this plush triceratops – and honestly, he would have stopped right there. It took a little convincing to get him to open more presents.
Eventually, he got into the whole present-opening deal, though he was very intent on examining every gift. For example, he got a pair of tennis shoes from Great-Grandma and Great-Grandpa. The two-year-old brain says, “Have shoes? Put them on!”
If only they had stayed still.
The major toy themes this year were Cars…
… Star Wars…
… and, of course, dinosaurs, dinosaurs, and more dinosaurs.
And let us not forget Auntie’s VERY cute shirt…
Then it was time for some cake and candles.
The birthday boy loved being the center of attention.
And after all that work I put into the cake – he ate the chocolate ice cream and left the cake.
Oh, well. The Chocosaurus cake was well received by everyone else. And it was as fun a party as a two-year-old boy could wish for!
