My amazing, intelligent, handsome, fun little grandson is two years old.  It is hard to believe that two years have gone by already.  Time--enjoyed, sure goes by fast.

And believe me, I totally enjoy being with my grandson.  

He has been a true light in my world during the last 2 years.  He has kept me going.  
And now he is TWO.

Of course he is the cutest and smartest two year-old on the planet!
He had a CARS movie theme birthday party.  He loves movies and CARS is one of his favorites.  His mom is a great party planner.  She prepared for his birthday for weeks and weeks in advance. 

Every time I went to their house, Bridge would be so excited to show me everything that had been accumulated for his CARS party.  It was so cute how he said CARS party.  I don’t think he knew what a CARS party was, but he was very excited that these things were part of it.

Aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, great grandparents, honorary grandparents, and even the mailman came to celebrate and wish him a happy birthday!  He had so much fun.
We had his favorite food -- chicken nuggets and French fries.  (He calls them “nuggs”). 

He got so many presents.  Everyone just loves him and it is hard not to spoil him. 

He did his best to play games even with all of the distracting action around him.  All of the kids liked racing cars on the track that Jer and Papa built just for the party. 

His mommy made him a very awesome CARS birthday cake.

He knew just how to blow out the candles--we were still singing and he was all about blowing them out!

And what would a CARS party be without getting your very own car? 

His favorite thing to play with, once the party started dying down was a big “Mater” balloon (like the truck character in the movie CARS). 

 It was almost as big as he was. He would put it on the floor and try to jump on it before it could float back up to the ceiling.  We laughed and laughed at the sheer joy he had while playing with such a simple toy.

He had a wonderful birthday and we were all so happy  to celebrate it with him. 

Happy Birthday, Little Man.  We love you!
