Happy Birthday Haper!!

A  lot can change overnight...a lifetime of changes happens in 730 nights.  Today, Harper turned two!  Happy 2nd birthday "buddy"!!

 one cannot do something without the other wanting to join!  This is one way chad makes sure he is "fair"!!

 these pictures are terribly out of order!  This was from today!  Charli is wearing all of Harper's toys he got from his birthday (most of them from her even!!)

 Charli and her best-bud Maggie at Bible School! 

 Harper came strolling in with Charli's glasses on  ~ he looks like a little nerd!

 this chair is just the perfect size for two little bums!

 Harper's adorable cake!  If you live in the area, I have a great cake-lady for you...she has done all of our cakes from confirmation to graduation, wedding, baptism, and now birthday after birthday!!  I made Harper's invites this year, and they look exactly  like what she made on the cake -- she did great!!!  And, it was delicious!

 excitement!!  Harper got his very own helmet for his birthday!!!  He was so proud to wear it when we rode today!

 double-picture opp here!!  You can see us on Rachelle's camera at the bottom of the shot too!! 
 It is amazing how quickly they pick up on things!  Harper got on his 4-wheeler today and drove standing up!!  Charli does this too...something she learned from her show off father!!

 the two boys on their special days!  Happy Father's Day Chad & Happy Birthday Harper!!

 I guess it is more fun to drive while you stand?!

 the back of the prowler is a great spot to rest after a full morning of playing at the shop!!

 Chad is so proud of this picture!  Zoe was his first dog as an adult...and his "baby" at the shop --- Harper was having so much fun!  They would not sit still for a picture, Zoe kept trying to (and being successful) lick Harper and when Zoe was still Harper kept trying to kiss her!!

 I am SO glad we don't have any attitude yet, that will be hard.  ;-)

 yay!!  Harper got so excited about all of his gifts!  He had several to open today as well...and he got equally excited about all of them.  He even picked a few to hug and kiss!!

 the kids working on the swing!  Charli has her "worker vest", her "tool" hat (which is a toy she gave to harper!!) and his John Deere tool set (which she also gave to harper!!) to work on the bottom side of the swing!

 I am certain he has rode on this type of toy before...but he had a blast on it today!

 Charli as a worker next to a cone at the shop!!  She loves this vest....happy birthday Harper!  ;-)

 I don't give Harper enough credit...he climbed that rope/ladder with ease all by himself!  He was so proud!  I guess I should have known, he is two ya know?! ;-)  Charli told him "Happy birthday, you 2-year old"!

 these two had a hanging contest!  Harper left Charli in his dust.  not only did he hang longer, he was pulling his legs up just to show off! 

Charli wanted to go super-high and Chad wouldn't go as high as she wanted!  So they compromised and she sat in the infant swing and Chad gave Charli her way!! (like that ever happens!!)

  1. Looks like lots of fun times! I just giggle every time I see Charli loving all of Harper's "boy" things...SO opposite of my life with my girly girl! The cake looked super yummy and cute. Thanks for doing such a great job of sharing your children with us out here that don't get to see them.
