Zoey turned two on Monday but if anyone were to ask her how old she is, she would say that she was "three". I think that is her favorite number.
Zoey's birthday is always filled with activities that I don't even have to plan! I love it!
We went to the ward breakfast in the morning and played with friends. After her nap, Zoey opened her presents.
Best invention ever.
We then headed up to the Marin Headlands to hang out with some of Ben's friends from work. Zoey did surprisingly well and stayed in the area we were in.
We ate, played horse shoes, Kubb, and shot waterballons with a slingshot at Jacob, whose birthday is on the 4th too! I guess every year they do this and they never get him! If you look in the picture on the right, my kids had to get in on the action. Instead of running away from the flying balloon, my kids did the opposite and tried to get wet.
While her older siblings were trying to get hit by balloons, Zoey yelled at them to come back. I didn't catch it on camera, but she cups her hands around her mouth while she yells. It's so cute!
We sang "Happy Birthday" to Zoey and she sang along. It was the cutest thing! She sang, "Happy, happy, happy" over and over.
There were some old army bunkers that we played around in for a little. It was beautiful to watch the sunset.
When it got dark, we headed up into the mountains to watch the fireworks. My kids had been bugging me all day about seeing fireworks. I'm so glad we were able to come through for them.
I just took Zoey to her 2 year appointment. She is 38.2 inches tall and 28.6 pounds! She's as all as a 3 1/2 year old. She has grown 5 inches since her last appointment and has only gained a pound! The doctor always gives me advice on how to fatten her up!
I love that she is putting words together to make phrases. Just the other day she told me, "Don't want too." I would have fallen out of a chair if I were in one. Zoey has usually just said one word at a time and to say 3 out of nowhere was cool to hear.
We love you Zoey!
