Nothing like a family birthday to get me back in the blogging saddle!
This weekend we celebrated Bug’s 3rd birthday. Our kids can have big Pinterest-worthy themed parties with friends on alternating years. But on the “off” year we do a smaller family celebration where all the decisions for the day get to be made by the birthday kid. Want chocolate ice cream for lunch? Sure! Want to see the latest movie or have a friend spend the night? Ok. Want me to stop unloading the dishwasher right this second because you’ve set up an urgent game of Candyland? Bring it, gingerbread boy. You get the idea.
2015 is a family year.
First thing — fresh outta bed — he wanted to open his gifts. Duh.
Batman legos and the face to go with them. “You wanna piece of this?!”
By request, Bug was served chocolate donuts with whipped cream and blue sprinkles for breakfast.
Unfortunately the weather was crummy all weekend, so we had to stay indoors. No one was complaining though, since we spent time jumping at our local trampoline park. Although terrified of the trampolines, Bug is entirely content falling into the huge foam pits for an hour.
Red Robin for lunch because they have the “red motorcycles.” Mac N Cheese and oranges are Bug’s favorite foods these days and Red Robin delivered on both counts. An ice cream sundae and cute waitresses singing to him didn’t hurt either.
The rest of the day was filled with playing with new toys and a few friends popping in to deliver gifts. After dinner Bug blew out 3 candles on his race car cake and happily enjoyed every. last. bite. Happy Birthday Big Guy!
