Everybody Party Now!

Theo had a birthday party with his family and friends today. Here are a few highlights for those of you who couldn't make it. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the sunshine and all of the toys!

Theo is 3!

Theo's official 3rd birthday was yesterday! We are having his birthday party tomorrow, but yesterday was the real day we first became Mama and Daddy. We didn't have much planned for the day, so we thought we'd ask Theo what he wanted to do to celebrate. He chose playing "Happy Birthday" on the harp and riding his bike to Deals Only (our neighborhood, weird discount store) for a treat of his choice. He chose one of those cute popsicle forms that you fill with juice...it was 99 cents! After our trip to "Deals", we played in the yard with the new playhouse and fort some friends had passed on to us. I think Theo and Penny will happily play in that little house all day, every day for at least 2 or 3 months or until the rainy season starts. They love it! We made tuna salad for lunch and the kids and I headed to bed for a nice nap. After we woke up, Andy presented me with a birth day present (it's the mama who does all the work, so she deserves a present, right?) of a new camera! We had wanted a smaller camera for awhile and he found a fabulous deal. You're sure to get more blog posts now that I always have a camera in my pocket. In the late afternoon, Theo wanted to pick blackberries, so we walked across the street and picked several pounds. The kids loved eating the warm berries right off of the thorny vines and some even made it into our buckets! We ate dinner at a local BBQ place and did a little grocery shopping before heading home to get ready for bed. We even got to drive past the Bellingham Birth Center where the kids were born (it's only about a mile and a half from our house, so we see it a lot!). All in all, it was a wonderful day! I can't believe it was 3 years ago that we brought that tiny baby home.
