Birthday Boy

On Thursday, April 25th, my sweet baby boy turned THREE years old. Where does the time go? This year has been a big one for him, exploding with new words and expressions, full of friends and imagination, a jump in jeans sizes, gymnastics classes and our first splash into a a team sport-teeball.

We began the birthday celebrations with a special dunkin donuts breakfast and Skype date with Grandma. Chris and I burned the midnight oil the night before building his very special present from us-a train table! Of course, he was beyond excited to open some fun trains to go with it-thanks Grandma Sharon!
Later that day we had dinner with my parents at Chucky Cheese and then headed home for some delicious dinasour cake. The cake is a story for another blog, but suffice it to say it did not turn out the way I imagined, and so I threw together another last minute. It was not nearly as pretty and perfect as I would have liked, but a tasty plan B nonetheless.

Fun at Chucky Cheese with the family...We have extra tokens so we'll be back soon-Evan is still talking about it!
Gigi, Poppi and Aunt Sami had an awesome dinosaur table set up, complete with birthday banners, balloons and fun little dino's to decorate the table with. 
Evan had an amazing third birthday with family-truly we could not asked for more! Just a few days prior we were able to have dinner with Chris' aunt and uncle where he was also showered with some birthday love. And then on Friday we enjoyed a beautiful day strawberry picking with friends, where Evan and his friend Kylie(who are three days apart) enjoyed a fun joint birthday picnic and park playdate at the strawberry farm. We are so blessed to be surrounded by such kind, thoughtful and loving family and friends.
I'll post our strawberry pictures on my next blog, but for now I stumbled upon this gem of a blooper from our birthday photo it! Happy birthday to my sweet, silly, three year old-I love you stinky face!

I love the memories we made for Evan's 3rd birthday! Chuck E Cheese was a great idea, great place for a "kid to be a kid" lol I am happy that we were able to be here for his 3rd birthday! Hopefully Ryan will be able to join us next year! We LOVE LOVE LOVE you Evan!
