My Little Monkey, I love you!

Today was Robyn's 2nd birthday party. Her birthday is Cinco de Mayo, but we celebrated today with our closest family and friends. Wonderful company and beautiful weather, paired with yummy food!

The margarita bar...crucial for a Cinco de Mayo fiesta! We served Beer Margaritas, my favorite!

The decorations, themed after Robyn's favorite book, My Little Monkey. She knows all the words!

The presents! In addition to all this loot, she also got a new slide and picnic table for outside. And an awesome water activity table!

More decorations :)

The food!!! We served tacos, nachos, guacamole, salsa and chips...and the star, Simple Carnitas!

Robyn's boyfriend, helping her with her presents!

Custom made wrapping, by one of her Grandmas.

A monkey lunch box, from her other grandma- perfect for summer picnics...filled with bubbles and a monkey book!

The kids eating dinner on the new picnic table!

Blowing out her candle.

This was as good as a family photo got today :)

And my cake...I'm so proud of how it turned out. It will be getting it's own blog later this weekend. My first experience with Marshmallow Fondant. Awesome!

Happy Birthday, to My Little Monkey!

My Little Monkey, I love you.
For all that you are, and all that you do!
You're magical. And sweet.
Your smile makes life a treat.
You're playful, and such a delight.
You make me laugh, all day and night.
Whether you're glad, sad, silly or spunky...
You'll always be, my little monkey!
