It has been an exciting few weeks at my house because my son entered the “Terrific Twos” club on June 25th! It seems like just yesterday he was my little baby boy, and now he is my growing toddler whose favorite phrase is “I can do it” lol. To know Cameron is to love him because he is so bright, funny, loving and full of life. He brings so much joy to my husband and I, and celebrating his birthday in a special way was high on our priority list.
One of Cameron’s favorite TV shows is Thomas & Friends, so it was a no-brainer to go with that theme for his party. With the theme picked, I then got started with creating his invitation, which I jazzed up with train images and a home photo I took of the birthday boy in his train gear.
To stay in line with the kid-friendly vibe of Thomas, we chose to have the party at the Wheaton Regional Park in Wheaton, MD, which features a miniature train, carousel, playgrounds and a train station party room. With the many amenities the park provided, this served as the perfect venue, especially since it rained prior to the start of party (so happy we had the indoor room). The birthday boy and his friends had such a wonderful time, and no rain could rain on our parade! The kids enjoyed the activity stations to include face painting and balloon twisting (by Signs, Wonders and Gifts Artistry), train play, train tunnel, coloring and more.
Check out some of the photos from Cameron’s “party train” (photographed by Paparazzi Pictures). Look out for Part 2 of this post.
