It happened my precious baby big girl turned 3 this past weekend. Our friends and family braved the rain from Patricia and swam on over to celebrate. It was tough going because I had planned on having lots of outside activities to keep those roaring toddlers busy but all the Mamas held down the fort. I would like to tell you the Daddies did too-but this is what the Daddies did…
We decided to have a Daniel Tiger birthday since our girl adores him! Grandma got Row a custom made Daniel dress for twirling. After Row gets dressed she likes to put her shoes and socks on and tell us it’s time to go “gotta go” in fact.Photobomb-Lola the Pug
We celebrated by eating Daniel’s unsmooshed tiger cake-I did not make this one. I usually make all of our cakes but I am more of a buttercream simplest when it comes to cakes. I bought all the stuff for this particular cake and contemplated making it for a good three weeks but then once I looked at our October month of travel craziness I opted to have a local baker make it and she did a fabulous job. It was so worth it! We had tiger tails-pretzels dipped, mud pies, cupcakes, fruits and veggies and tiger juice. Oh and my dear friend Jennifer let us borrow her awesome handmade trolley.
Hubs and I have started a birthday book for Row. Every year we write on a note card things we remember for the year-one from each of us and I put them in her birthday book for down the road. I also take a picture of her with all her gifts from that year. Mainly because I think it’ll be cool for her to see later on. I wish I had seen all those cool 80’s toys I got!
I have created a Disney monster and we kind of love play dough! As the girls in my play date say-Callie loves a good party! Here’s to another magical year.
