Wyatt's Family B-day Party!

*Be ready for picture overload*
We celebrated Wyatt's b-day with family June 2nd. The theme was Dinosaur Train! I started planning this party a long time ago (surprised?) because the thought of having an 8 week old and planning a 2 yr. old b-day party kinda sent me over the edge. I think from now on I won't plan so far out. *Don't hold me to that Mom or Mark.* He LOVES Dino Train A LOT but he is also really into airplanes right now and I think I could have thrown a cuter airplane party. Ha, because it's all about the decorations right?!?! LOL! I used Etsy to have the invitations created...I loved them!
 Bad picture but I can't find the file from the computer. Also the date is different because we had a kid party and a family party. 
 Cake Table
 Wyatt spent the night at Maw Maw and Paw Paw's the night before the party. He came in and LOVED all the decorations. He wanted a cupcake SO bad! 
 The Cake...made by a friend of mine. She is SO good!
*Instead of gifts (Wyatt is already so blessed) we asked for people to make a donation to the St. Luke's Hospital Maternity ward. With the donation a plaque will be made and added to the wall in memory of Ryder. This is the letter we put into the invitation.

"The day Wyatt and Ryder were born will be a day Mark and I will never forget. Because of our loss we were introduced to some amazing people. Our stay at St. Luke's Hospital was not the normal first child experience, and the staff at that time took care of us in an unforgettable way. St. Luke's recognizes this very special time in a family's life, happy or sad. In lieu of gifts for Wyatt's birthday this year we ask that you donate to St. Luke's "Footprints" wall in memory of his brother, Ryder. Footprints wall is a lasting tribute for all to see, with a charitable donation to St. Luke's Maternity Services. Please know that St. Luke's Maternity Services were invaluable to us in our time of need. If you choose to make this charitable donation in Ryder's memory, please deliver the check to us made payable to St. Luke's Hospital. A footprint will then be placed on the memorial wall. We thank you so much for loving us and celebrating Wyatt's 2nd birthday in this manner." 

 The food: My MIL made the mini sandwiches and my mom's amazing mini fruit pizza's didn't make it into the picture ;( but they were sooo good too!
