Bench Monday - Sunday Edition: Happy Birthday

I pride myself on taking my BM shots on Monday, as most are not all too public, um... okay none are really public, I'm a homebody what can I say! But this week I just couldn't resist getting a Happy Birthday bench shot in yesterday for my son's second birthday. We had a wonderfully warm, sun-drenched, no. jacket. wearing. kind of day, filled with relaxation, park play, and cake eating!

This shot was taken while we were at the park, inside of the gazebo. I was really trying to get his "2" shirt I made him in the shot, but being as toddlers usually want to do the opposite of what you're asking... well you get the picture:>

This was the best out of 5 family shots. That's all I could get in before the toddler started wiggling around & screaming, my 7 year old starts begging to go play again & my hubby turns to me & whispers, "People are going to think we are crazy!" First Public Bench Monday Mission, accomplished in my book:) And I do love the end result!

Here are a couple of alternative shots:

Happy Birthday Ethan!
I love you baby!

And Happy Bench Monday
to everyone else!
