Happy 3rd Birthday!!!

I can't believe it, but Steven actually turned 3 yesterday. He's just growing up way too fast! We had a busy day yesterday as we celebrated and played hard. In the morning he opened one of his presents from us (Candyland) so that we could play before Margaret woke up. Then we all got ready for the day and went to eat donuts at our favorite donut shop. Then we drove out to Plano and played at Pump It Up Jr. for a looooong time until we were all tuckered out. Margaret went down for a nap after lunch, then Steven, Daddy and I played another game of Candyland before Steven's nap. In the evening we went to dinner at Uncle Julio's with most of John's family where we celebrated Steven's birthday and John's graduation (which is today.) We ate lots of food, then we ate birthday/graduation cupcakes and sang "Happy Birthday" to Steven, though he couldn't even hear us b/c it was so loud in the restaurant and he was busy playing with his cousin Tristen. Then we went outside to a little patio area and Steven opened way too many presents (most of which were Thomas themed, though not on purpose.) It was a great and busy day, and the kids crashed when we came home. And now they're already crashed again (I love it when naptime is easy like this!) Of course I had to take pics of everything we did! Happy Birthday Steven! We love you so much and we're so glad that you are a part of our family!!!!

Of course Steven won, but he only cheated a little bit

I can't believe he turned 3 without us. And Pump it Up Jr?! You should be ashamed of yourselves...weren't even invited! Don't worry, I won't tell Leah and have her CRY! :(

Just kidding, I'm the crier of the family and I'm already finished. hee hee. :)
