Celebrating MoMo {take 1}

Sometimes your plans need to be ruined to find out there was something better in store for you...



Here we were in the midst of a road trip {somewhere in Ohio}, on MoMo's birthday.
The big 2 years old.
And we were going to celebrate, our way.
Road trip or not. 

We had a simple, on the road, birthday celebration planned.
I had brought along a little "party in a bag" and the presents were all pre-wrapped.
So, all we needed was a table in a park under a tree.

A table under a tree.
A non awkward, not so public place to have a tiny celebration.

What we didn't know when we came up with this "carefully thought out, yet seemingly simple" plan was that the local parks were going to be closed for some kind of festival.

Ugh. All hope seemed lost.
But then...
But then...as we drove around aimlessly, looking for somewhere, anywhere we could throw our little guy a mini party…I spotted the most perfect spot through a gap in the trees, sitting up on a hill.
{I know this all sounds like hogwash but it's totally true, I'm not exaggerating at all. REALLY! I swear on all the donuts.}

And so we ended up with the perfect party location.
Far better then we ever hoped for.
For the bestest 2 yr old in all the world.
And. He. LOVED it! 
Daddy dropped some of us off to set up,  then he brought Mo back to his tiny little surprise party.
Turning 2 was never so much fun. 

{His favorite part was being sung to. He'd been waiting for that moment since he heard everyone singing to Coop the week before. Adorbs, right?!}
I would throw a million parties here if I could.
{again, not exaggerating}

ps-if you think this rocks…stay tuned. The after party was killer. For realz.
