Miss Sydney's Luau!!

Last Thursday was my baby girl's 2nd birthday.  On Saturday we had her luau birthday party.  We had decided to just set everything up in the garage and set up pools and water stuff for the kids to play.  The weather was projected to be HOT, so I was a little nervous.  Luckily, even though it was probably 90*, there was a good breeze so it wasn't unbearable.  

Once again, pinterest had me finding all sorts of things I wanted to try out for the party.  
Here are the gift pails for the kids and some decorations.
Some of the treats.  Eric's cousin's wife made the cupcakes and the cake.  How cute are those cupcakes.  I also made some flip flop nutter butters, and some s'mores on a stick
OMG, this cake was my favorite thing.  I was looking for a bakery on Facebook, and Eric's cousin's wife said she could do it.  I had no idea what it was going to look like, but just told her luau themed.  This totally exceeded my expectations.  The "sand" was graham crackers and I found the kids raking it.  :)  It tasted as good as it looked too!  I hated cutting into it and wrecking it.  I think I found our new baker!
Some tiki poles going up the driveway, and some centerpieces
I started this with Kendall's third birthday where I asked her questions.  Sydney isn't quite to that point yet, so I just made notes of some of her favorite things.
The treat table.

One base said "luau" and one said "Aloha" that I printed from the luau Cricut cartridge I found.
I bought each of the girls these adorable outfits from Target.  I thought they fit the luau theme perfectly.  I had them both dressed and as soon as I opened the front door for Sydney to walk outside, she ran and dove in the pool.  I thought that was probably my sign to ditch the clothes and pull out some swimsuits.  Stat.  
We had two little pools, a slip and slide and a sprinkler set up.  The kids were in heaven, and were never bored!
Sydney, as always, was spoiled with lots of fun new things!
The girls got a new table and chairs that they tested out waiting for the cake to come.
My sister and her husband went to Hawaii a few years ago and bought this outfit for Kendall.  The size said 3-5 years, so I didn't think it'd fit Sydney.  Kendall didn't want to wear it, but I should've known better that Sydney would be game.  She walked around in her little hula gear for quite awhile.
She got a crown at daycare on her birthday, and wore it that entire day, and wanted to at her party. 
Sydney even hit the pool in her hula outfit!
The kids started the day at noon, and by dinner time still weren't ready to go inside.  We decided to order a pizza, and they were excited to have a picnic.
The kids got some kites for her birthday, so they decided to try them out.

The party turned out perfectly, and the kids had a BLAST.  Now to start planning Kendall's, which she keeps asking when it is.  :)  Poor kid, I don't think she realizes how far away October is.

    to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and

Is it simply me or do a few of the comments appear as if they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online social sites, I'd like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list the complete urls of all your public sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
