Wow, what a fun-filled jam-packed weekend. We packed so many activities into two days! Why? Because FW turned TWO on Saturday. So, we made sure to do as much fun things we could to celebrate him. It was great to make him feel special, especially since he now has a 1-month-old sister and he has to share the attention with!
Saturday morning we started the day with his favorite – pancakes!
They even brought out in muffin with a candle on it to blow out and sang Happy Birthday. He loved it!
After breakfast, we headed to the zoo. FW gets a membership from one of his uncles for his birthday and it’s such a perfect gift!
Francis LOVES animals, especially giraffes and elephants. So, the zoo was pretty much his ideal birthday location.
We even checked out the new Asian Highland’s exhibit.
We were there for several hours, and I discovered that they even have a nursing room for moms! It has two rockers, a privacy partition, children’s books and more. Yes, we may have spent some time in there.
At night, we all headed to the Indians game. FW seemed more interested in the mascot and music than the game. He did love “the baseball song” of course.
My parents also came in town to celebrate the birthday! They got in Saturday night, and we started off Sunday with a walk to breakfast.
That afternoon, we had people over to celebrate FW. B grilled, and my mom and I helped with the sides.
B’s mom made a great birthday cake – it was a bear with a soccer ball! FW loved it.
I know I had a good time – and I hope FW did, too. I can’t my little buddy is already 2 years old!
Some questions for you:
- Do you like zoos?
- What is your favorite kind of cake?

Happy Birthday, FW! We used to take the boys to the zoo all the time when they were little. I miss those days…
Happy birthday to your little man! I think a pass to a zoo is a perfect gift. However, I am surprised admission for kids under 3 is not free.
I can’t believe FW is two already! I remember when he was born! We kept zoo memberships when our boys were little. I spent many weekends there as they had a wonderful playground my kids never tired of. A membership is a very good idea for a present! The cake looks adorable. Thanks for linking!
