Jay's Birthday Week Days 6 and 7

We made it to Jay's 3rd Birthday and lived to tell about it!! This week has been so much fun, full of happy memories, kids in good spirits and sweet moments to make Jay feel super special.

It's been so much fun that I feel like these last two days should have a tag line at the end saying "This birthday fun brought to you by the makers of ibuprofen and caffeinated beverages." We're all partied out, but it's all worth it.

Day 6 fun was limited to a trip to Target and some major downtime at the house. Lizzy and I were suffering from allergies or a bit of a cold or birthday week exhaustion so most of the day we spent resting, watching tv, reading and listening to the radio in Jay's room. It was awesome and necessary.

Oh, and the UPS man had a special delivery....our NEW SLIDE!

We spent most of the time after dinner until bath time helping Daddy put this beast together. Lizzy literally sat in the pieces we weren't using and played like a hamster at the pet store for almost an hour.

TODAY was the BIG DAY. Jay's birthday!

I picked up Krispy Kreme this morning-

then Jay came to breakfast and opened his gift-

"NEW HUNTING BOOTS! KANK YOU!!" He is so excited about them.

Then it was outside to muddy up his boots play and help dad, then off to the gym, a couple of hours at the pool-

lunch at Chick-fil-a, some playtime at the play place-

home to play outside some more-

a very brief nap before getting up and going to his very first movie-TURBO! We knew it was about snails, so we knew we had to see it, but did you know it is about snails AND TACOS?!?!?! Hello? Has there ever been a more perfect movie to be Jay's first movie AND on his birthday? No, there has not.

Lizzy skipped the movie and visited at Dede and Papa's house so we brought dinner back there and finally had time to sing and eat birthday cake at their house.

I made a yellow cake with chocolate frosting and sprinkles which has become custom. Perhaps it will be tradition.

What a perfect day and a great week we've had!

Just when you think things can't get any better, they do--
