We were living in Battle Creek, Michigan on WahWahTaySee Way at the time of Travis' 2nd birthday. Kirsten and I took Travis to Bill Knapp's for lunch. Bill Knapp's was a great place to celebrate birthdays. The children's menu had their meals labeled with animal names. Kirsten and Travis liked ordering that way. They gave the birthday person a free chocolate Celebration cake and "Happy Birthday" was played over the loud speaker. My kids loved Bill Knapp's and their chocolate cake. We were sad when it closed. Bill Knapp's Celebration Cake recipe was purchased by Awrey's and can be found at some grocery stores now.

Kirk was working at Minges Brook Elementary that day. When he got home Travis opened his presents. Kirsten got Travis a Little Tikes Ferry boat. Other gifts he got were a Fisher Price soccer set, clothes, wooden peg sorter (which I still have) and money.
Travis opening clothes, he looks happy. The Little Tikes ferry boat is in the background.
We weren't living near any family at this time, so we had a quiet dinner with just the four of us. I had made a small cake, so he got two cakes for his second birthday! Travis is living in Florida now and I hope he has a great birthday.
Happy Birthday, Travis!!
