The week that was #15 - the one with Ethan's 2nd birthday party

Happy Bank Holiday Monday everyone. It's time for another weekly round up...

This week, I was away from home for a couple of nights due to work and had a pretty tiring time of it. As such, this week's 'the week that was' is a little different, just as I don't have quite so much to report as normal - all the fun stuff at least relates to this past weekend!

I missed my boys and the week felt long because of everything I had to do so by the time the weekend rolled round, I was ready for some down time.

And of course, it was the start of Ethan's birthday celebrations too. On Saturday, our best friends descended on Birmingham and we met in the city centre at a lovely bar and restaurant for a birthday meal for Lindsay, who was 30 plus one.

Little did we know, we had more than just birthday's to celebrate... there was an engagement too, of two of our best friends. We were so over the moon and you can find out more here, where I shared my favourite photo of the week.

We headed back to ours on Saturday, late afternoon, for a celebration and a toast to not just one but two brides-to-be and grooms-to-be in our group. 

2016 is going to be an exciting year.

On Sunday, we had a mini party planned for Ethan with close friends and family at a lovely pub called The Hedgehog.

He turns two on Tuesday so it was the perfect chance to celebrate with some of the special people in Ethan's life.

It also gave me a good excuse to put a nice dress on and put my hair in rollers too.

We had a room to ourselves, lots of balloons and cake and it was a really nice afternoon spent in good company.

He was a very lucky boy, receiving lots of thoughtful gifts, including: a Little Tikes push car, Thomas, Toy Story and dinosaur books, Mr Tumble interactive book, blow up dinosaur playmat, jelly shoes, Justin Fletcher party CD, garden toys and an Olaf t-shirt to name a few. Suffice to say, he was a very happy boy indeed.

And he has even more to come on Tuesday!

He had a lot of fun and was in good spirits until he had a bit of a sugar crash after his choo-choo cake and needed a nap, desperately!

We packed up everything and came home to play with all his new things and to enjoy a quiet day today before his birthday tomorrow. We'll be going on the Seven Valley Railway steam train which I just know Ethan will love and we can't wait.

My baby's going to be two. TWO. Yikes!
