On their actual birthday, we stayed home and had a fun day. We played with some of our new toys. We ate breakfast outside on our new trays.
Grancy was here and she went with us down to the creek.
We opened gifts from family like the bike helmets from Grancy and the science kit from Cousin Avery.
When Avery came to see us last month she had this fun magnetic doodle pad. Lucia, Elliott, and Mazie each loved it. Avery was so sweet to get them each one for their birthday. I love his expression in this picture.
Look at him using his left hand. Lucia always uses her left hand; Mazie always uses her right hand. Elliott switches things up. We like to tell him he is ambidextrous.
Clearly he loves the helmet from Grancy.
She got them the helmets to go with the Big Wheels. I have so many fond memories of my Big Wheel. I hope the three love theirs too.
No, she did not get Elliott a pink one. Only one was put together on their birthday, so they had to share that one.
Here they are enjoying the gifts from NanaLin and Grandpa. The singing cards were a huge hit too.
Elliott loves his Buzz. I think Buzz loves him too.
The girls got doll clothes for their Bitty Babies. I can't think of a more perfect gift for them.
We had strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and vanilla ice cream.
We also had an impromptu bonfire and sparkler celebration.
For their school celebration the next day we sent strawberry cupcakes with sprinkles.
On their birthday we also had a video chat with Avery and her parents.
We had a wonderful day celebrating the precious gift of these three wonderful creatures.
