2 years ago today...

My bloggy friend, Heidi at Blue Eyed Blessing tagged me to play in a little game.

What were you doing 2 years ago to this very day (or at least as close as you can get)?

Well, this is kind of a no-brainer for me and you can probably guess what I was doing especially if you read my last post!

I was celebrating Jack's 3rd birthday!

We had a pool party in our backyard and it was a blast!
Sweet little Melody was 4 months.

This picture just cracks me up (haha!). Jack showed crack the entire time, not just when he was bending over. I kept hiking his bathing suit up and it just kept slipping right back down. I finally just had to take a picture.
Opening a John Deere present. Do his friends know what he likes or what!?
Blowing out the candles on some birthday cupcakes. I thought I was pretty creative putting Swedish Fish on top of cupcakes for kind of a pool theme...then I joined the blogging world and I realized how creative some people really could be! *cough* *Heidi* *cough*!
I remember what a fun party that was. Just the right number of kids and everyone got along and had a good time. Our house went under contract that same weekend, and we moved into our current house just about a month later. Jack's 3rd birthday party was the last celebration we had in that house; the first house Alex and I bought together.

It's my job to tag a few people to play along now.

I'm tagging....

Lauren @ Snellings Stories
Amy @ In the Tiger's Den
Bren @ Life In Maggie's World
Pam @ Twenty Little Piggies
Jennifer @ JustBeeKoz

Share some memories and photos of that day two years ago and tag a few more friends to keep the ball rolling!
I can't wait to see what you all were up to!
Thank, Heidi, for tagging me. It was fun to reminisce.

Yum! Now I want a cupcake!

Heidi @ Blue Eyed Blessings said...

This post just "cracks" me up! (Had to say it.) So glad that you got to relive some of the old memories through this tag! I bet it was fun for you to look back and see your old "stomping grounds". Love the Swedish fish idea on the cupcakes and just so you know...I may not have actually thought of that. ;)

2 years really does go by in a blink of an eye!
