Prepping for Jack Being 2

One of my very first posts was a run down of things I had to get done for Cole's 4th birthday. Well, I am not going to post a run down for Jack's. For several reasons, 1) Who really wants to read that?, 2) I don't feel as overwhelmed with Jack's party, AND 3) Ultimately that is because he is turning 2 and I realized that I could show some control and plan a more subdued party, so there isn't much to list.

He is having a dinosaur hunt for his party. Mostly it is just a get together for him to play with his friends. The one activity I did plan is a dinosaur hunt. The kids are going to wear little explorer vests (brown paper bags), take their binoculars (toilet paper tubes), and search for dinosaur eggs (plastic Easter eggs) and then a real dinosaur. I am pretty much done with all of that. I think that the dinosaur hunt bags turned out pretty cute. They were pretty easy to make and really cheap. Don't look too close I do not claim to be an expert seamstress.

The only big thing I have left to make is the dinosaur cake. I found a picture online that I wanted to use, but there were no instructions, YIKES! Thankfully my friend Jenny is going to come over on Friday and we are going to "Ace of Cakes" that sucker! Anticipate pictures of our success!

I love how your "low-key" parties are still cooler than my attempts at throwing a big party. Hope it turns out great!
