Since Paxton couldn't have a birthday party this year, we wanted to give him a weekend full of his favorite things.
We started on Friday morning. He crept downstairs while I was feeding Porter and opened his pile of presents that I had wrapped the night before. We came downstairs to a neatly stacked pile of board books and a movie and a brand new outfit still completely wrapped except the corner where he has peeked in.
That night Paxton wanted hot dogs so we had our first cookout at our new house.
The next morning was Paxton's actual birthday. He woke up to a floor covered in balloons.
And his presents from GG.
After some playing and Curious George, we got ready to leave.
We took Paxton to Three Bears Acres to play.
There was sand...
And a slingshot area....
And toboggan sliding....
We played until everyone was worn out and then headed home for naps.
After dinner, it was time for the part Paxton was most excited about...CUPCAKES! He requested blue cupcakes and candles so that's what we did.
He made us light the candles and sing happy birthday to him five times, but you only turn three once so we did.
He kept saying he was having so much fun all day. I think he had a pretty amazing birthday.
