On the 14th Ledger turned two. Can you believe we officially have a two year old? Pat and I were absolutely thrilled to be able to celebrate a 2nd Birthday with one of our kids, something we’ve looked forward to for a long time.
We went with a Cars theme, Ledger’s all time favorite movie. I had pinned about a million ideas for his party, but about a week before his party I realized with how pregnant I am, I could either stress over everything and literally exhaust myself, or make it extremely simple and enjoy having a two year old. Needless to say I chose the latter, and I’m grateful I did.
Once Ledger saw the decorations he continually kept saying, “Zoom,” “Go,” and “Truck!” all night long. He was quite upset when we cut Lightning McQueen (His cake) apart.
Ledger still isn’t too fond of sweets, so I baked some cookies and thought between the two desserts he’d be tempted to try at least one. I was wrong, he didn’t eat anything the whole night. Oh well, the rest of us enjoyed the cake, ice cream, and cookies.
The night before, Pat walked in from work with a battery charged Mater truck and said, “I would have done anything to have this as a kid!” It melted my heart to see Pat so excited. When Pat brought Mater out as the last present Ledger yelled “TRUCK!”
He hasn’t climbed off Mater since.
Ledger loves tires/wheels. He goes crazy while walking through parking lots, and tries to touch every car he can. In the video he’s admiring Mater’s tires.
All three sets of grandparents were able to make it, and I was disappointed that Grandma and Grandpa Merritt left without getting a picture with him.

Pat let Ledger drive Mater home. Perfect ending to a perfect night.
Happy 2nd Birthday Sledge, we love you!
