Happy 2nd Birthday Boys!

Where have the last two years gone? How did my little tiny preemies turn into these super cool little "boys"? :::sighs:::

We celebrated with a great MIckey Mouse themed party at one of our favorite parks here in town. All of the boys twin buddies came to celebrate along with other friends and family that made the day special too! My dad, or as the boys and Hayden like to call him, "Rock" got the boys a bounce house for their party and that was a huge hit with all of the kiddos, except Cam and Carter! Figures!! Then we had a suprise visit from the Fire Department! No need to worry though, my friend's husband is a Firefighter and he came by to say hi and show the kids the truck! No emergencies!! haha!! After the party we went back to our house to open all of our goodies! The boys of course got a ton of great stuff! Some of the things they got were puzzles, books, bubble machines, PJ's, clothes, Thomas the Train stuff, playdoh, Mickey Mouse stuff and lot's of gift cards to Toys R Us!

Then on Sunday we ventured out to Disney for the very first time with the boys! I have to say I was very nervous and stressed about the whole idea of taking them to Disney. The boys are very hot and cold with things like that. Sometimes they love it, and well most of the time they hate it! But today they LOVED it! We didn't start out too hot though. While we were waiting for our friend Gina to get us in (her hubby works there and has free passes) the boys had a total random freak out! Screaming like crazy kicking in the stroller! I was not happy. But once we got into the park they did amazing!!

We took everyones advice and headed over to Fantasyland first to knock out all of the kiddie rides that get busy during the day. It was perfect! Hardly any lines at all! We hit Small World, The Caraousel and the Teacups all before lunch. After lunch we went on The People Mover (I know this is not the name now but when I was a kid that's what it was called) then headed over to check on the line at the Jungle Cruise. While we waited for our fast pass time we hoped on Alladin's Magic Carpets. THis is basically just like Dumbo only 4 people can ride instead of just two. The boys loved that one! After that I had decided I really wanted to take them on Pirates of the Carribbean! I know you would think I'm crazy but I thought what the heck! I always rode it everytime I ever went to Disney as a kid so why not start the tradition with my boys? Well they did ok, but not great! It's a little dark and scary for them so I wouldn't recommend it for two year olds!! haha! After that we went over to Mickey's Toon Town and let the boys run around, or at least stand around. They were exhausted by this point and really just stood there at the play area! So we decided to make our way towards Main Street to hop on the train that goes around the entire park for our last ride. They liked it but like I said, they were so tired I don't think they even realized they were on a train!

Before we left I had to get the boys their very first personalized Mickey Mouse Ears! They were not interested in them whatsoever...shocking I know! We had to take the monorail back to Epcot because we had parked over there so that Gina could meet us to get us in. On the ride back Carter fell asleep in my arms, which made me very happy because he hasn't done that in about a year! Cam zonked out in the stroller and missed the entire ride home!

I have updated CAm and Carter's shutterfly share site if you want to see all of the pics from the last two days. The link is over to the left of the page. I will be adding more pics to that site in the next few days so stay tuned for more:)

All in all I think the boys had an amazing birthday weekend! Thank you to all of our friends and family that celebrated with us and made the weekend even more special!

Happy Birthday Cameron and Carter!
