The Birthday

Spencer woke up at 5:20 crying.  He kept saying "You forgot my Birthday" over and over.  We calmed him down and he crawled in bed with us.  I am not sure when Garret came in but this is what our bed looked like about 6:45 in the morning.

I made the birthday boy Cinnamon rolls for breakfast.  Then he opened his presents.  He loved everything he got.  Garret spent all the money in his piggy bank on water guns for Spencer.  He was so excited for Spencer to open it.  Both of their reactions were priceless.
We all played with some of his new toys in the morning.  Then we took him to Target where he got to pick out one thing (its a tradition).  He took a while deciding and then picked Lacrosse sticks.  They call it playing bandits (that was the name of the lacrosse team in Buffalo). 

After we got home we decided to let him do his cake.  (Which he loved and when we saw it he said "I love my Monster cake")  His cousins ran over to watch him blow out his candles.  It took a couple blows but he finally got them all out.
Then we put the kids down for a nap.  When they woke up we took them to a splash park.  They thought it was so fun.  Spencer would run in get wet then come back out then run in again.  Garret tried to see how wet he could get.

The late afternoon was spent doing Lego's and eating a dinner of chicken nuggets, quesadillas, corn on the cob and chocolate milk (Spencer picked it all).

After dinner he picked to watch Frosty the Snowman.

I think our little monster had a great day.  He kept saying "It's still my birthday" with a great big smile.  He says he loves being three. We all had a great day and love our little three year old!
