A sweet sibling shot ♥

Keenan chilling
Mama attempting to chill, funny the moment I sit down I always have company

I think Emma has been on it a million times by now, but every time we ask what she wants to do the answer is always, and I mean ALWAYS, ride the dunes!!

Getting ready for Keenan's first ride

A quick stop on Lake Michigan

And we all loved it

Emma modelling in front of the lake

A family shot, wow, when was the last time you saw one of those? :)

And yet another!  This is what happens when mama's camera battery is dead and can't take pictures... I actually end up in a few shots.  Don't get use to it now. :)

Grandpa B and KeeKee playing in the water

Grandpa B playing, not in the water :)

Yup, those two tiny specs at the top of the dunes are Emma and Joe.

Keenan taking it all in

Keenan was much easier to photograph since he got out of the water much sooner than Emma.  :)

Loving every minute♥

Grandma and Grandpa trying to have a moment of calm, those are rare during our visits.  I hope they enjoyed the 2 minutes of peace. :)

Thanks to our many friends and family for helping make Keenan's 2nd birthday extra special! ♥
Emma and Bibi 
Keenan's godfather, Xaver, was in from Germany and was a great sport!  Not only did he don a Mickey birthday cap, Emma even managed to get him to play the Mickey "Let's dance" wii game.  The first time (and probably the last time) I have EVER seen Xaver dance! :) Patrick and Papa did a little dancing too! :) What fun!
Aunt Lori, all the way from SC! :)
Grandma Sandy cuddling Tucker after all her hard work helping us get ready!

Uncle Paul with his furry baby

Christine had fun with the bubbles :)

Dave and Joe doing what they do best... ;-)

Auntie Shell brought her dog clan with her from Chicago.  Her 2 newest pups were a hit at the party. 

Lars had his go on the let's dance game too :)
Oscar totally into the Mickey light!
Baby Oscar such a super star!

A little jumping fun; Emma with Ben, Melanie and Noah
And more jumping with Keenan, Aidan and Alex too!

Em and Keenan playing with balloons in the sun shelter :)

Grandpa Byron blew up balloons over and over, and over sand over again for Keenan
Grandpa sometimes let the air go on his neck...

And Keenan loved it!!!
He sat on Aunt Lori's lap for a long time watching the balloons fly up and down

Of course, waving them around was quite fun too! :)

Hard to believe, but my baby boy is now 2.  Though I love to watch him grow and learn so many new things, a little part of me just wishes he would stay this little, sweet and cuddly so much longer! 
Mickey Cake (ok, well not really... it is gluten-free banana bread with frosting ;-).  Keenan doesn't really like cake, so we substituted with what he does like!  He still didn't like the frosting, so thankfully mama had saved a few extra banana muffins without any just for him! :)
I think the highlight for Keenan of the whole cake eating thing was blowing out candle!♥

Keenan playing with his new Mickey Mouse pals and his train set

Chuggington, chugga, chugga, chugga, ..., Keenan loved his new Koko train!
