Saturday Was the Perfect Day For a Birthday

We had some SERIOUSLY gorgeous weather on Saturday. IDEAL weather, which doesn't seem to happen much around here. The kind of day you want to just live outside and then bottle it up to pull out on one of those not-so-ideal days. Our little friend Brandon was lucky enough to have his 2nd birthday party on that sweet day, so it was fun to join in.

I made him a little library (or whatever) tote, lined with dinosaur fabric.


And, because he is a 2 year old boy, we deposited something with wheels inside.


Brandon's mom was kind enough to make a cake with red frosting and then let all the kids dig in and share! Actually, I tease, because all three of mine managed to stay miraculously clean.


Lots of happy revelry and tired kiddos at the end of the evening.


But the sun stayed with us right to the very end.

The bag is so cute! I'd love a pattern if you have one to show someday.

Hi Launi! Glad you stopped by.... I don't use a pattern when I make a tote, but I have to make another next month for another little boys' birthday. If I manage to be organized enough, I'll try to do a tutorial....although, I dare say there are probably a TON of better ones out there..

Lucky little boy. What a great bag.

You know, you'd think that with all the tote bags around here that I would think to take them to the library instead of just balancing all our books precariously. Maybe I should make the kids their own library bag. They are more likely to remember it than I am...
