T W O Infinity and Beyond

My oldest just turned the big •T W O• On May 10! I still can’t get over it. Two has definitely been even more emotional than one was for this mama. Like, how are we already half way to school, talking like crazy, learning new things by the day, and just becoming a little human. While I can’t wait to see the person he grows up to be, my heart just aches at the thought of him growing up.

I had SO much fun planning his party this year. I’m really soaking up all the birthdays I get to still pick the theme. I struggled with the theme for a while. Originally, it was just going to be plain old Toy Story, which really didn’t thrill me. It feels like a very popular theme right now with the new movie coming. Then, one day it came to me, he is really just obsessed with Buzz Lightyear, like sleeps every night with three, yes three, Buzz Lightyear toys. If you don’t follow toy story, Buzz is a space ranger toy, and his phrase is “to infinity and beyond.” Boom. There it was. “TWO infinity and beyond.” Literally couldn’t think of a more perfect theme.

Then came the actual planning, and it was actually tougher than I expected. There’s not much just buzz Lightyear decor out there, or if it is it’s pretty corny. Here’s what I came up with!
