Now, on to the big day! Benson came downstairs to a bunch of balloons in the living room and a pancake breakfast (again, I think I was more excited about the food and decorations than he was...) and he got to open a gift after breakfast.
Cassie had preschool in the morning, so Benson and I went on a little date to the dinosaur museum at Thanksgiving Point. He loves that place!

We picked up Cassie from preschool and headed to the park for a picnic lunch. As you can see, the kids were pretty happy about the park!
Benson took a great nap while Cassie and I made his birthday cake...which was kind of a disaster. I just used a box mix, and I decided to follow the high altitude instructions, which made the cake way too crumbly. Luckily, I was making the cake with two 9 inch round pans, so when the first one completely fell apart, I decided to just frost and decorate the second one right in the pan. Lesson learned, though! Just follow the regular instructions, even if you live 4,500 feet above sea level.

When Trevor got home from work, we got busy eating pizza and opening presents! We didn't get Benson anything very exciting..I figured a two-year-old wouldn't have many expectations for his birthday. He got some clothes, a swimming suit, bubbles, a magnadoodle, and a stuffed puppy, and he was totally pleased with the haul, as simple as it was!
I promise I tried to get some pictures of Trev...but he was yawning in the only one I got.
Happy Birthday to our little handsome-face!
