Last year we thew him an Honest Abe party.
This year we went for a construction theme. I was looking for a much simpler party planning process this year. The construction theme was so easy because we already had a lot of the decor and anything else I needed was easy to find in stores since it is such a popular theme. There are also tons of ideas on Pinterest which is where I found inspiration for the invite.
The construction theme was kind of a happy coincidence since the road my parents live on is literally closed... And that's where the party was! So people had to drive around the road closed signs to get to the party. Free decorations!
And obviously, we had to stop for a photo op.
We knew it was going to be a warm day so we planned to give Abe his gift right at the start of the party so the kids could play with it if they didn't want to get in the pool. It was a hit! It's the Step 2 Rain Shower Splash Water Table.
Although, there were a few that were brave enough to jump in.
We eat burgers, hot dogs, chips, and fruit.
Small construction cones were found at the Dollar Tree. Construction hats and mini dump trucks were from amazon.
And for dessert I made dirt pudding instead of cake.
Abe needed some help blowing out the candles.
...But no help eating!
Finally it was time for gifts! And I think we managed to have the best gift table ever!
We ended the evening with more swimming and then a few sparklers.
Looks like the Birthday Boy gave this party a big thumbs up!
We can't believe our little baby cakes is already 2. We couldn't be more grateful for him.
