Jacob turned two with a theme celebrating his love for choo-choo trains! Weeks before the party, we met with our photographer Pete Iseman to have pictures taken to capture a vintage train look. Wallet-size photos were sent to guests with their train ticket invitations, and each of the grandparents received a larger photo as well following the party.
Gift bags for the kids contained items to celebrate the day. Each one had a red bandana, an authentic wood train whistle, a conductors cap, bubbles, gum and of course candy!
The table was decorated with goodies and sweets to eat and take home!
The hydration station was equipped with tea, water, apple juice and soda. . .
Another station for food was set up including sandwiches, chips, potato salad and Watergate salad!
The party décor went onto the deck outside with a banner I created.
Jacob and the kids played on his birthday present — a backyard playground set! Even our golden retriever, Lassie, got in on the celebration.
The party was a blast and we were blessed to have so many friends and family come celebrate! I was surprised how much all of the kids loved their gift bag items and immediately started expressing their style with the bandanas!
Joe and I are so blessed to have five wonderful kids! Jacob is our youngest and last baby . . . we never really planned on having any more kids after Jonah. God gives wonderful gifts at times we never anticipate them, and Jacob has been that gift to our family! Happy birthday my little love!
