Happy 2nd Birthday, Harbor William!

Double Sided invitations created by Brandy Foshe of FosheFotos

This past weekend we celebrated Harbor William's birthday with close friends and family outdoors at a local park. The weather was cool and crisp, the leavers were a brilliant yellow, and the sun shone brightly with a touch of warmth- it was a perfect birthday! 

Harbor loves anything that can, "Go, go, go!" He especially loves airplanes. I made 25 tissue paper "clouds" and David hung them from the cathedral ceiling of the pavilion. I also constructed and painted three Styrofoam airplanes that we hung from the center of the clouds over the cupcake stand, the goodie bag table, and the gift table. The other five tables for guests had clouds and in place of soaring airplanes, I painted the number "2" to hang out of the clouds. 

When the wind would pick up and blow, the planes would swing in the pavilion, and Harbor was mesmerized; I think he thought, even if only for a few moments, that they were real!

We had a great time visiting with our loved ones and playing at the park. Planning birthday parties are so much fun and I hope that someday Harbor will look back at pictures and know how much love I had, and always will have, for him in my heart. 

Up, up, and away! You will be three before we know it!

Happy Birthday, Harbor! You make me very proud and I love being your mother!
