"Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!" Birthday Party

"Wubbzy lives in a tree
He likes to play, play, play!
He's got a bendy tail
And he likes it that way!
Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!
Wubbzy, Wubbzy! Wow! Wow!"

A very "Wow! Wow!" happy birthday to you!

I baked a large sheet cake and decorated it with "Wubbzy", Caleb's favorite cartoon friend from Nick Jr.  Because Caleb was turning two years old, Wubbzy held a star candle in each hand for Caleb to blow out.

The whole time we were singing "Happy Birthday" to Caleb, he kept saying "Wow Wow Cake!"

"Wow! Wow!" Cake
: Tested and Approved

Caleb's cake was accepted onto Coolest-Birthday-Cakes.com.  Hooray, Caleb!

I made a Box Maze for Caleb and his little buddies by taping together large boxes and cutting different shapes in each side. Though I ran out of time to decorate the outside with Wubbzy images, the children didn't seem to mind!

Because Caleb's birthday is in late July, we held an outside sand and water play party.  Children brought their swimsuits for the pool, sprinkler, and sand & water table. 

We ate lunch outside as well, serving Caleb's favorite foods (chicken nuggets, macaroni and cheese, fruits & veggies).
Caleb's special Wubbzy birthday shirt reads
"Guess Who's 2 - CALEB"
(He still loves to look at that shirt, and remember!)

Wow, Wow!  What a great 2nd birthday Caleb had!

Just days after Caleb turned two, my grandparents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary by taking their daughters, sons-in-law, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren on a cruise!  Our family adventure began on a Carnival Cruise ship, went through several Canadian ports, and then finished in New York City.  This book, Canada Cruise and NYC, is told from Caleb's viewpoint.

Also created during Caleb's second year: the Shutterfly photo book Caleb's Day.  It showed a typical day in the life of 18 month old Caleb.  Enjoy!
