“My Sweet” Third Birthday

This is the party we debated.  Debated sounds more diplomatic than any other term, right?
This was the party Ray planned.  This was the party I attended.
This was the most rockin’ third birthday party ever… And I will forever be grateful for all the hard work my husband put into it.
Not only did we have an opportunity to make memories with our children, but we also had the opportunity to share it with our friends.  I have to tell you – this part of the party felt the best.  As I’ve said before, sometimes I feel like we are the recipients of so much generosity.  It was so nice to be able to share it with others.  So here you go…. The Twins “Sweet 3rd Birthday Party”.

Welcome to the Wild Wild West.

There were bandanas.  There were hats.  There were pumpkins.   There was “pin the spot on the cow.”

There was a hay ride.  You can’t actually see Andrew and Addison on the ride – but they are in the front right corner.

The corn maze… and featured in the center – the reason we made it through the corn maze.  He’s a clue genius!

See small children walk the corn maze.  See small children get tired.  See small children suddenly become heavy children….

The petting zoo was the hit of the day.  Everything was “touchable.”  There was a calf, a bunny, chickens, peeps, and a few pigs.  All the kids LOVED the little animals.  (some loved them a little too much…)

They also had an old fashioned water pump.  The kids pumped rubber ducky's down the pipe… or drank from the well.

You probably recognize Caleb from other pictures.  He’s Andrew’s BFF and Hero all rolled into one.

People closest to our heart.  It is amazing how much our family loves people we didn’t know a few years ago.

Happy Birthday, sweet babies.  I’m glad we celebrated your birthday a few days early – because I’m not really ready to watch you enter the world of “three” yet.  Those tears will come later this week.  Saturday was a day for laughter and memories… with good friends and great ideas.  Thanks, Ray, for making the day one we can all remember.

How beautiful! I love the pictures, and it looks like everyone had a great time! Ray definitely did a good job - can I hire him to plan my kids' parties? ;)

Happy Birthday Addison and Andrew~ your party looks like it was a blast and, as usual, Mommy took amazing photos to commemorate the day! Hoping that "3" brings you even more fun than "2"! :-)
