Picking strawberries and turning 2

Even though it's the end of the picking season I decided to do some strawberry picking and we had a great time. This is how we started Alyssa's birthday and you can see as she is eating as she picks in the background. When we went to pay all Alyssa had was an empty container that she gave back to the lady very proudly and strawberry juice on her hands and mouth. Too cute!!!
This was Alyssa's favorite present. She is SO into babies. This one crawls, cries, gets up and giggles. She loves it and I can tell already this one is going to annoy me.
I will leave you with a photo of her cake which is actually a bunch of cupcakes with a ton of frosting on top. I still can't believe she is 2. Time has flown by so quickly!

Holey moley! That is one awesome cake/bunch of cupcakes! What an adorable idea? Did you make that? Heck, it doesn't matter! I didn't even know you could buy things like that!

Looks like a fun day. I love to pick strawberries. Yummy. Love the Elmo cake. Great job. I did Elmo for my little one's 2nd b-day too. My cake looked similar to yours. Great idea to use cupcakes. I'll never decorate a cake like that again. What a chore. I really had a hard time getting it right. LOL!

What beautiful photos. That little one is too cute with her empty container. Great idea. And that cake is so creative. I'd like to get more into the creative birthday cakes...That's one area I haven't yet tackled, but looks like a lot of fun and love! Yes, the years fly by. Bittersweet, indeed. Blessings and happy birthday wishes to your girl.
