Happy Birthday, Mr. B!

Today my little man turns *3*. I can hardly believe it! We've had a lot of fun this weekend celebrating his big day. My parents came down from Arkansas and we had a few of his little friends over for a *dinosaur party* yesterday. Of course, you can't have too many "organized" activities with little ones, but I have to give my husband props for creating an awesome game that they all enjoyed. He downloaded a template of a stegasauras from the web and used his *hot knife* to create a dinosaur puzzle out of foam. (He loves to create with foam!). Here's what it looked like:

Pretty cool, huh? And here is the birthday boy putting in a piece of the puzzle:

We hid the pieces around the yard (Easter-egg-hunt style) and the kiddos ran around, found them and filled in the gaps on the dino. Next we had dinosaur cupcakes:I had a hard time finding dinosaur things--I guess it's not the year for them. However, my sister had gotten Mr. B a package of all these little dinosaurs, so my mom had the great idea to top the cupcakes with them. They looked so cute and were a huge hit!
After the cake and presents bonanza, there was some sprinkler fun:That was followed by naps for all!! As you can see, we did have a great time and made some special memories. There's nothing like an awesome family day!

Happy B-day Mr. B!!! Looks like a wonderful family celebration! I was looking at the pics with my 3-year-old, and she saw the dinosaur puzzle and said, "What's that?" When I told her, she said, "I wish we could go to their house and do the dinosaur puzzle!" :) I wish we lived close enough to each other that we COULD do that! ;)

Wow I'm so impressed! That dino game is wonderful! What a talented hubby you have...but you already knew that! :) I have to tell you that I put out a large pot of herbs for the first time like we talked about....thyme, dill, basil and chives. They are wonderful! I can't believe I hadn't done it before! I was thinking last night at dinner that I'm going to get used to this and then in the winter really miss it! Maybe I'll bring the pot in to the kitchen....or downsize it first! LOL

I so wish I could've been there! It looks like it was so much fun, but it'll be good to see you soon! =)
