When planning Carter's 2nd birthday party I started thinking about his favorite things in hopes of coming up with a theme. At the time his favorite book was Go, Dog, Go and it's still one of his favorites. It's a great combination of things he loves: cars, dogs, and all forms of transportation. I loved the idea for the theme and knew it would make for easy party planning as I could focus mostly on cars. I immediately knew I wanted to make a road on the ground using black and yellow electrical tape and set cars out so Carter and his friends could drive their cars on the road. Carter had loved the masking tape train track I made on the floor during train week so I just knew the road would be a hit. Ty was a little hesitant of using electrical tape on the carpet, but he ended up agreeing to let me do it.

here and knew that's what I wanted for Carter's party. My mom ordered it from the bakery that did Ty and my wedding cake, Carter's gender reveal cake, and the cake for his first birthday. Along with the cake she also ordered car cookies and dog cookies. The car cookies were yellow and Carter thought they were buses. He kept referring to them as "Caca's buses", it was so cute!
