Lula turns 2

My little girl turned two last Thursday.  I knew it was coming, but it's still hard to believe that she's gotten so big.  We celebrated with a small family party at my parents' farm.  We had some gorgeous fall weather and the setting couldn't have been prettier.
We went with gold and pink (she is quite the girly girl, after all).  I picked up some paper and ribbon for the bunting, some gold glitter ting-ting, and a gold paint pen at Hobby Lobby.  Everything else was pulled from around our house.  The whole thing was pretty easy and laid back.  

For fun, we had wagon rides, tree climbing, and tractor rides.  (My dad's real tractor is in the shop, so he rode the kids around on the riding lawn mower.  They didn't know the difference, and loved chasing him around.)
There were also a few games of horse shoes and even some shooting.  (I didn't get photos - I was much too busy snuggling the party girl.  She fell asleep on the way to the farm and took a while to wake up.  I didn't mind one bit!)

And of course, there was singing and cake:
Happy birthday, my sweet Lula!  I love, love, love you and the amazing, bright, sunshiney girl that you've become.  Here's to a wonderful third year of life!
