O's 2nd Birthday

When we got home from Saskatchewan, O went crazy over helicopters and airplanes. Lucky guy has a helicopter flight school owner for a father and lives 5 minutes from the airport, so he gets lots of exposure to both! Having a helicopter/airplane party was a no-brainer this year!

More of O's Party

Just to show how much he loves planes and helicopters - this is what we found him looking at while we were preparing for the party. The kids had a treasure hunt outside where they looked for airplanes and helicopters. They then turned in the planes/copters for their favor bags, which they had to fill at the "baggage claim." One friend of O's came over a few months later and asked his parents, before arriving, if he might find helicopters in the yard again. I was very lucky to find helicopter/airplane/transportation things at Michaels - build your own helicopters, scratch art, and magic grow capsules. Oh, also note the airplane-shaped airplanes (hard to see, but look really hard). I think Amanda gave me the airplane mold before O was born!

10-10-10 Surprise

My family was all planning to come out to BC for my graduation and then I learned that, previous this, my brother was planning on having a big bash for his 10-10-10 birthday party (October 10, 2010). I was telling my sister about this and she had the idea to see if we could get some of his good friends to fly in to BC for the celebration. They came and we surprised my brother pretty good (unfortunately he wasn't feeling super well, though). Not pictures are all the people, the good East Indian food, and all the presents that came in 10s (e.g., 10 books, 10 fire starters, 10 kinder surprises, etc.).
