Thank you everyone for the Birthday wishes and for helping me celebrate. I had a great day with good people, food and weather...can't ask for more. I think Lily and Emma had the best time playing "Peter Pan" with Uncle Chris.

Grandma J just arrived from Florida and came to Jack's Party
What is a summer birthday party without a little pool time?
Presents and cake!
7.31.11 - We celebrated Jack's 2nd birthday today. He's getting to be such a big boy. Olivia and I had to leave early because it was past her bedtime. Jack had a great time and loved all his presents. Grandma J had arrived earlier and came straight to the party.
Having a "Splash"
Olivia getting her feet wet with Aunt Judy...and eating shark.
Golf Kart rides
Lily and Jack playing in the playground
Patti getting some cuddle time with Olivia. Not sure which one is happier.
Lencioni Family Picnic - Thank you again to Mark and Liz who opened their home to all of us to host the annual Lencioni Family picnic. It was a beautiful day and everyone had a great time. It's so nice to see everyone and catch up. We look forward to doing it again next year.

Lily is now tall enough to ride some of the rides at the fair. We just need to remember that she's only 2 and that she can ride them by height, but may not be ready for them. She had a great time on everything...well mostly. Lily and Emma were doing great on the teacups and then towards the end Lily started to look a little green so we asked them to stop the ride so she could get off. She seemed fine after a few minutes and still wanted to go on rides. ;) In the beginning of the video you can hear her laughing and having a great time...and then you can tell by the look on her face...not so much!
We started the day off with breakfast at Chris & Gwen's and then walked over to see the parade. Lily had a great time watching the parade as well as getting the candy with Jack and Emma. Olivia was great and easily entertained. Olivia and I left when the fire and tow trucks came as they were too loud for her. The kids had fun playing in the water later in the afternoon, and of course all the food that we had for dinner. Olivia and I didn't make it for fireworks as she goes to bed at 7pm. Michael and Lily joined his family to watch them. I did get to see the Libertyville fireworks from our back yard.
Thank you again Chris & Gwen for having us over.
We went to Amber and John's for a great Pig Roast (head and all). We all enjoyed the spray tent, food and company. We didn't get to stay for the fireworks because Olivia need to get home for bed. I did hear that they put on a great show.
We look forward to doing it again next year. Thank you again Amber and John.
