Happy Birthday Boys!

I can’t believe our boys are three. It’s crazy for me to think that I no longer have any babies or even toddlers. They are growing up so fast. In the last week Cody and I have both been looking through some old photos, it’s amazing how much they have changed.

Now fitting all three in one lap or attempting to fit them all in the same crib would just turn into a wrestling match.

While today is their official birthday we had their party on Saturday. It was a lot of fun and the boys had a wonderful time opening their gifts and eating cake. The boys did get a little spoiled (like they do every gift giving occasion) or maybe it just seem like it because all the gifts come in threes. While waiting for everyone to arrive we let the boys play with the bubble wrap our new chairs came with. They would have been happy to play with the bubbles until we offered presents.

We gave the boys their first big boy bikes.

They were so excited to ride them and the only way to get them to move forward was the offer of more presents.

The last gift they opened was a gift to share. Nicholas and Parker unwrapped it while Andrew tried to insist that we open and set it up.

It was a Cars themed play hut with tunnel, Andrew really really wanted to play with it. When I told him their wasn’t space to set it up in the play room he carried it upstairs, then when that was shot down he tried to take it outside.
After presents we had pizza and of course cake and ice cream. The party was loosely Mickey Mouse themed so I made their cakes to match.

We sang happy birthday to each of them in turn and I was thrilled that they all were able to blow out their candles.

Since it was their party and they had their own cakes, I just handed them each a fork and let them at it.

After eating their fill they spent some time playing in the yard with their cousins. It ended up being a great party, by the time the party was over and baths were done it was bedtime so they didn’t get to open and play with any of their new toys. The new toy fun was all saved for Sunday and every day since.
