This past weekend we have definitely got into the swing of summer with two celebrations. First on Saturday we celebrated little man’s 3rd birthday. (Even though his birthday isn’t until Friday). I just cannot believe that we pretty much have a three year old already! It is so crazy to think about. It also makes me super aware that he is growing up so fast that I need to really remember to take it all in and not worry too much about all the little things.
This year for his party we had a dinosaur theme. I did not go all out this year because he was more into just wanting a blue birthday cake. Pretty simple and low maintenance right, hahaha. I figured I would decorate with a few dinosaurs that he already had. They make great weights for the balloons on the tables. Then I did everything else in blue. We were even lucky enough to get a cake with a Dinotrux on it which he was super excited about.
It was all pretty simple and not much fuss. For food we had some pulled pork. The hubby’s signature meal to make when we have get togethers like this and some fruit and veggie trays. The weather turned out to be perfect especially since we have the party in the garage. When it is too hot outside it is just miserable.
Overall the party turned out great. Ray got a new bike, a baseball bat and tee, a bunch of play dinosaurs, and lots of other fun stuff to play with. We did ask family to try and only get him something small and then just give him money. We started him a savings account after his first birthday and have been adding to it ever since. I think this year he was even excited about all the money falling out of his cards when he opened them!
Then on Sunday we celebrated Father’s Day with my husbands family. It was a nice barbecue and Ray got to see some of his cousins that he never really gets to see. The whole weekend was perfect and we loved seeing and celebrating with all of our friends and family.
