the big two

last week just over a week ago kou-chan turned two (i know, two already!) so to celebrate his birthday we decided to invite his friends from the same “duckling” group at kindy and have a bit of a party/picnic at the park.

had a beautiful sunny day for it and all in all it turned out to be a great idea as the kids could run around on the grass and play on their bikes while us adults chilled out in the sun sipping our drinks and supervising.
the best thing about it was at the end of the day we didn’t have to worry about cleaning up had it been a house-party.

funny you should mention cupcakes.
he shared his birthday month with another girl at kindy so yesterday they held a little party for them and they all got homemade (kindy-made) cupcakes!
apparently kou-chan ate two!! that's my boy.

it's a great park on the outskirts of tokyo and is absolutely huge! lots of open space, just what kids need!

thanks Pascale.
times like this and it makes me happy that he wasn't born during winter. although I'm sure we'd find some cozy indoor party ideas.

Happy 2nd birthday, Kou-chan!

thanks Kenny!
don't kids have it good!!
their only worry in the world is where they last put down the little green truck or if there's any more jelly in the fridge.

happy b day kou-chan! time sure flies eh? wonderful pics, it looks so idylic with the grass and balloons! i could see myself have a birthday like that! btw, can he speak now?

yes, he's a right little chatterbox!! unfortunately he's coming out with a lot more Japanese than English but when I ask him questions in English he can pretty much reply to them.
often see him counting his cars in English too. he can now count up to ten in both languages.

Luuworld said...

yay for bilingualism! it's so cool how he'll be able to speak both english and japanese.
