Canoe Anniversary Dinner

For our anniversary dinner this year we went to Canoe for the first time. It was great! The setting along the river was better than expected. We got there about 30 minutes before our reservation to have cocktails by the river. We enjoyed the drinks and we didn't have to keep an eye on the time, they came and got us when it was time for our reservation.

We enjoyed our dinner, I even ate rabbit for the first time and was quite pleased with it.
On our anniversary we always splurge on dessert.

Then we went right back out by the river to hang out for a few before heading home.

Overall it was a great evening and we definitely plan on going back.

Ben's Car theme Birthday

Ben's birthday was a lot of fun. We went with a Cars theme since he is obsessed with McQueen and Mater. I already shared the invites now time for the party most of my ideas came from Pinterest, which I'm addicted to. My Pinterest board for Parties.

Caution Cones cups and racing flags on the wreath are from Birthday Express

The rest of the wreath is paper crafts from Disney's website on Cars ideas

Apple cars, Cone cups, and How Ben's grown over 2 years pictures on a clothes line (IKEA)

PB&J sandwiches cutout with cars cookie cutters

Fishbowl filled with cars and toy tractors tipped.

Cupcakes on display and the Leaning tower of Tires (Donuts)
McQueen and Mater Cupcakes finished!

All ingredients needed to decorate Cars cupcakes, cherrios for wheels, red icing from Publix, Marshmellows (small and large) chocolate icing, white chocolate squares, mini M&Ms, and graham crackers

Happy 2nd Birthday Ben!!

Ben's invites are out!

I got the idea for the invite from Pinterest here's the direct link to the blog

I found the poster she worked off of online and then revamped it to also include the street sign picture with Ben's name. I also printed the background first and then cut out each car and taped them to the invite with foam tape to give the invite some dimension.

If you leave a comment and would like the template I am happy to share. I just couldn't figure out how to post the word document here.
