Collier's Digging in the Dirt Party

Collier had a great time at his 2nd birthday party! We had to reschedule the original date due to rain, but it worked out because a few more friends were able to be there this way! 

We had everything set up in our back yard and had a dump truck come deliver a load of dirt about 15 minutes into the party. 

The dirt was damp, and it was LOUD when the truck tried to dump it. Some of the kiddos didn't like the noise much, but they cheered up pretty quickly. :) 

We had shovels and trucks ready for digging, and the kids seemed to have a great time! 

Collier ran to the top of the dirt pile, first thing, and stood up there forever. It seemed like he knew it was all about him that day. :) 

I made "dirt" dessert, and the gummy worms were a big hit. I think Collier ate 10! 

And, in the end, we mixed a little real dirt with the fake stuff! 

Somebody grabbed a water bottle, and the dirt turned into mud!!

Micah decided to hose the kids down before they went home. Have you ever seen a little girl so determined to make it to the water hose? Hilarious. 

The hose wasn't working fast enough, so we ended up just using the sprinklers. 

Collier had the BEST time and was totally worn out after the party...that's what it's all about! I loved getting to celebrate my sweet boy turning 2! Next August, we will be having TWO boy birthday parties....oh my!
