What to Do When You Turn 3...

  • and your Mommy's very pregnant.
  • and you've already had your birthday party.
  • and your Daddy is at work.
  • and your Mimi, Grandpa, and the rest of your family is working.
and...  and...  and....

There were many reasons preventing us from doing anything big for Daniel's actual birthday.  Honestly, I couldn't stand the idea of not doing something because Daniel's birthday has always been distracted with other events.  On his 1st birthday, I actually went into early labor with Samuel while we were getting ready to take Daniel to the zoo.  On his 2nd birthday, Brian and I were boarding an airplane to head to Alaska for 9 days of revival and sight-seeing. 

So, this year, I was determined to make certain that April 20th was special for Daniel.  In fact, I let him choose what he wanted to eat and threw in some other random things to surprise him!  Here is Daniel's 3rd birthday in pictures and in HIS OWN WORDS (in italics):

I wearing a birthday hat.
Ms. Woshel gave it to me.

 I'm drinking my milkshake.
This was the night before his actual birthday.
He said he wanted a chocolate milkshake.

I eating pancakes.  They are green.
They are not black and white.

Chocolate and green!

It say, "Happy Birthday to You!" from Daddy.
For me.
