FC: Happy 2nd Birthday Ben! 2011
1: Ben's birthday was all about his favorite thing, feeding his chickens at the farm
2: These pictures were taken about a week before Ben's birthday at the farm. His favorite chickens are the hens with white feathers who will let him pet them and come right up to him to get some scratch.
5: When I started planning Ben's party CoCo and I decided we had to do chicken cupcakes. She found the design and came over a couple days before the party and we made them together. She also helped me make the Happy Birthday Ben sign from scrapbook paper. I picked wildflowers and made arrangements in old jars, and had a chicken feeder full of skittles and M&Ms. Pictures of Ben feeding his chickens were all around the kitchen and 2's hung from the ceiling with white and red balloons. Daniel and I decorated the house while Ben was taking a nap. He was so excited to wake up and see all the decorations and soon our guests started to arrive.
7: Our Guests Nana, Oma & PaPa Uncle Jeremy Aunt CoCo, Uncle Rich & Clara Bobby, Korey & Parker Castillo Amy Hopper Eric & Paige Brown Andy Cantrell
8: Time to Eat KFC of course!

24: Ben loved feeding the giraffe After he gave him the crackers he signed, more.
25: Oma and PaPa called to tell Ben Happy Birthday!
26: Ben was very somber on the train ride, just taking it all in. He didn't think the "do not tap on the glass" was a very fun rule at the snake house.
27: Grandpa Bob, Grandma Myrt, and Aunt Karen drove in from California in time to eat Ben's birthday dinner with us. | We stopped to get a Happy Meal on our way home from the zoo.
