The Tragic Optimist

scenes from a 2 year old’s birthday party

Craziness going on, but I wanted to quick post some pictures from Zoe’s second birthday party. But that wasn’t really all that quick.

But first! Of course, she can’t turn 2 without a rock hammer for scale shot.

24 months - rock hammer for scale is 13"

Ok, party people. Here’s the party pics…

craziness - also notice the cat, just hanging out in the midst of all of it

I have finally reached that age where a party at my house has a "kids table."  And I'm not sitting at it.

cooking is always more fun with a friend.  (and check out the super-cute red Chuck Taylors from Aunt Liz).

You know it was a successful party when people (yourself included) end up stripped down to their knickers (err, diapers).

  1. I love all the photos – but the last one especially . . . the diaper & high tops combo is a winner – and I’m pretty sure there are 2nd birthday photos of me in a diaper and my Buster Browns! I might have to see if I can find that incriminating evidence of my cake-smooshing abilities.

  2. Cute! Pretty brave of you to have a birthday party for a 2-year-old…I think I was allowed to have one friend over when I was 3, and only had real birthday parties after that…
