Aaron is 2!

Just after the pandemic began in 2020, we learned I was pregnant. It culminated in having beautiful little Aaron in December. Which means, he just turned two years old!

Aaron has been really into buses lately, so theme-wise it was nice to do one around buses for him. Unfortunately the buses that all the party goodies focus on are school buses, and while those are fine buses, they aren’t exactly what he shouts about when a public bus drives by. So I went a bit DIY with it, and printed off some drawn buses from AC Transit (Alameda County, CA), MUNI (San Francisco), and SEPTA (Philadelphia). Add in a Happy Birthday banner, some balloons, and a dozen little cutouts of an AC Transit bus that said “Aaron Shuttle” and we were all set!

Oh, and a cake! Just like other decorations, the only cake was school bus themed, so we just went with AC Transit colors and a little Aaron Shuttle decoration.

We still aren’t doing big social things, so it was a low-key little party with some close family friends who have cared for the boys in the past. He got a few little presents and was mostly just excited to see everyone and eat cake. Adam was a fan of the cake, too.

It was also a delight the following Monday when the person who does social media for AC Transit saw the cake I shared and wished him a Happy Birthday from the official AC Transit Twitter account.

Bonus: BART did too! And if there’s anything Aaron loves more than buses, it’s trains, particularly BART.

We’re in Philadelphia now for the holidays and are going to do a joint birthday party for both the boys (Adam was born at the beginning of January) while we’re in town visiting family and friends there. So we’ll have more cake soon!
