The Birthday Day

Birthdays are a big deal in our house. The kids wake up and immediately wish the birthday person a happy birthday and the celebration begins.

Yesterday, it was Alice’s 3rd birthday and boy did we celebrate.

We started at the skatepark where we played and played. Then we went to Waffles N More (with an extra friend – Noah) for birthday breakfast.

It was Alice’s choice. She loves the “waffle store.” Which is good because we do, too.

These 2 are the cutest, aren’t they?

We had hot chocolate.

There was a chicken fried steak skillet.

And, by very careful analysis of this sticky face, there was also waffles with syrup and bacon. And butter.

[ooooh she is too cute.]

The boys had some silly, I guess, because they were acting crazy.

We gobbled it all up and headed to the pool.

It was a little cold, but that didn’t really stop them.

After a while of swimming, it was time for Alice to open her present from Mama and Daddy.

Yep, Alice got an American Girl doll. And she LOVES it! I know I have some people out there who do not approve of giving an American Girl doll to someone so young. But I don’t care. (And I think a doll for a 3 year old is perfect).

This girl…

…is going to love this doll…

…until it’s ratty and dirty and worn.

She is so happy to have a dolly “just like Yaya (Maria).”

But after the presents, it was Lego time.

The kids played for hours.

Around dinner time, the girls next door came over (JJ, Lauren and Alison) and swam and ate with us.

It looks good in that tummy, don’t you think?

And then we had dessert.

My mom is in charge of dessert for a school thing, and I totally wanted to try it out. Check it.
