Happy Birthday Rachel!

Rachel’s two! Last Saturday we went to Rachel’s (Lily’s cousin who lives in Auburn) birthday party.  It was a small family party with Andy’s parents and brother, us, and one of Dan and Ben’s cousins, Paul Mashler, with his family there. Rachel kind of hung back at first, mostly because she had just woken up when the party was starting, but pretty soon she was playing with the other kids and she had no problem tearing into her presents! Actually, some of the other kids had no problem “helping” her! :) After presents we all enjoyed cupcakes and ice-cream and some other snacks. It was really fun, especially since it’s been so long since we’ve hung out with Dan and Andy and Fam. Thanks for inviting us, guys!

Rachel's 2nd B-Day 117Unwrapping her present from Lily – it took quite a bit of persuasion to get Lily to give up the ball so I could wrap it, and then as soon as Rachel had it unwrapped and had moved on to the next present, Lily claimed it for the rest of the night! I guess I know what to put in Lily’s stocking now!

The party was a lot of fun! Thanks for posting the pictures. I think you got more than we did! Rachel is still a fan of that stuffed pig. She'll carry it around saying "oink." so cute!
