Hudson is TWO!

It is hard to believe that our friend Husdon is already TWO!! It has always been fun to watch Hudson knowing that Cohen would be doing the same stuff he is the following year. Hudson is quite the little bike rider so we are hoping to get Cohen up and on a little balance bike early as well.

Brooke and Jim threw Hudson a party at a little park in City Park
Jim made Hudson's cake again this year, so cute!
the theme was bubbles and bagels...they bought all of the kids little bubble Hudson is blowing bubbles for Cohen
Cohen and daddy did some swinging
then Joel and Isaac and Jim and Hudson joined
self shots...getting harder and harder
Cohen's first attempt at sidewalk chalk
and if you can see his mouth you can see how well the first attempt went!

another Sunday and another trip to the...

This week they also had a little petting zoo there from the Urban Farmso Cohen got to pet the bunnies and the goats...but those chickens they are SCARY!!

Shopping takes on a whole new meaning...

when you get to sit in a car and honk and wave at everyone in the store!! (not to mention the workout mom gets while pushing a cart of groceries with this car on the front and attempting to turn a corner!!)

Oh the Places You'll Go!!!!

Now we have the official birthday party pics as well so I figured I'd post some (or LOTS as the case may be) thanks Ben for taking the pics for us!
If you saw the previous post on Cohen's party you saw that we did a pool party to celebrate.
friend Isaac
LOVES fruit!
and was there to celebrate turning ONE!
G-man also there to celebrate
and hang at the pool
all of the boys enjoyed the bubble mower Cohen got from grandma and grandpa
Hudson hanging pool side
and a little pool side mowing as well
all of the boys
Cohen chatting with friends
notice all of them have something in their mouth...except Cohen who is looking intently at what Isaac has in his mouth
some laughing with friends
and the newest friend- Zoe who is still a little too small to play!
Auntie Kate and Uncle Scott came to celebrate too
uncle Scott getting the skeptical look from Cohen
but then he broke out the blowers
which are LOTS of fun!
joke is on auntie Kate...I am soaking wet!!!
Cohen with Natae (my friend since 4th grade)
and soaking another friend who wants to hold him
uncle Jim and cousin Landon (who LOVES popcorn so was very excited to find it at the snack bar) drying off from a dip in the pool
Cohen with his Meri
Catherine and a sneak peak at Ben, the photographer
pool time with daddy
sometimes you have to be serious in the pool
training them young for corn hole
then it was time for a cupcake (notice a mouth still full of bagel)
not quite sure what to think
an initial touch then checking to see if he is really allowed to be doing it with mommy
then with daddy
it is so SILLY!
the stuffed cheeks are not cupcake like you would think...but still bagel
so instead he fed daddy some
and then mommy
then we played a game to see what Cohen will be when he grows up:
a whale for marine biologist
a soccer ball for athlete
a guitar for musician
a paintbrush for artist
a stethoscope for doctor
a book for writer
and a calculator for something in finance
the idea is to put him down and whatever he fully picks up first will be his was looking good for doctor...
then a detour to writer...
but alas...
the calculator WINS! Maybe following in daddy's footsteps...
now it is party Miley says!
