"Too Old"

Well the weather did hold up and we headed out to Two Jack lake for our annual camping trip with Crystal, Troy and Emerson.
While we were setting up the tent Emerson found Cruz's food and was feeding her 1 piece at a time. :) Such buddies!
Saturday while Emerson napped, Justin wanted to ride a trail he knew of in Banff so Cruz and I joined and hiked it while Justin rode it twice.
It was beautiful, very hilly but we enjoyed it. Even though I was a little paranoid of bears and cougars since there were signs all over saying there were sightings of them. Or of getting lost. If you know me - you know I am severely directionally challenged. I was happy when we came out right at the truck. :)
Uncle Justin and the BIRTHDAY GIRL!!!  Miss E turned 2 on Saturday!
When you asked her how old she was she said "too old"! 
She is so chatty right now and soooo fun. We just love her and were so glad to spend her birthday with her.
We made many "towers" and thrones out of our wood pile.
Cruz loves camping.
Checking on what's going on...such a good camper.
My Mom made Emerson an awesome hat for her birthday - she was so cute opening it!
Saturday afternoon we headed into Banff for Cow's ice cream! yum.
Then made a stop at Two Jack lake. 
Troy dunking Emerson's head in as she wanted to swim! The girl is a fish just like her Dad, Troy did go for a dip!
Cruz loved it just as much as Emerson.
Cousins! Cruz got many "Cruzie hug" over the weekend. 
On her throne again, with her rocks.
Opening her presents from us.
New puzzle play time with Mom.
Birthday corn! 
I had made rainbow cupcakes and ordered edible icing stickers of Toopy and Binoo for her as right now she LOVES them. She was pretty pumped - it was cute. We heard a lot of "Toopy and Binoo"!!
This is how you eat a cupcake on your second birthday. It was awesome. Pretty much the funniest thing ever.

Then it was sparkler time. She loved it.
Uncle J, Emerson and Auntie A. 
{I-o-wa is how she says I love you - I hope she never grows out of that! Love it.}
Mom, Emerson and Papa.
The whole gang!
Thank you Mother nature for the great camping weather!
