My baby is 2!

Sigh. My baby Lydia is now two years old. The day after we drove down to Orange County, was Lydia's second Birthday. Given the fact that there is not an over-the-top bone in my body, we had a family and friends BBQ at the Newport Beach Villas where we were staying for the week. We actually had Cooper's 5th Birthday party here as well, and it is just an amazing location. Set on the hill overlooking Crystal Cove State Beach, it's basically idyllic for a beautiful Spring day.
Early in the day Cooper and Catelyn were able to feed the Koi fish near the Piazza.

At the "park" location on the property there is a mini putting green, a sand box, a basketball hoop and a nice hill for flying kites. The kids tried to fit it all in.

We had some family and friends who we hadn't seen in a long time come out. It was great to see everyone to celebrate Lydia's Birthday. Thanks to all those who came. Here are a few pics of the birthday cake fun. (We had a few cupcakes for the kids and a cheesecake for the adults)

More pictures of kites and messy kids to follow.

Becky - I also don't have an "over the top bone in my body" either. I am relieved to know there is another one of us out there. I get things done efficiently rather than extravagantly.
