Turning Three

Ashlyn and Alyssa had their third birthday party on Saturday. We invited their friends from church and all our family. That meant we had to have the party somewhere besides our house. I checked the weather, 72 for the high. It looked like a perfect at the park. We choose West Hills Park because it's pretty and kind of protected from the wind. Good thing it was somewhat protected from the wind because it was one of those days that you had to be careful not to get an arm or leg amputated by your car door. The party turned out really fun. We had cupcakes and homemade ice cream served in cups. (No plates to catch the wind.) Almost everyone we invited to the party called to see if we knew how windy it was and if we were still going to have the party outside.
Ashlyn has gotten kind of shy lately so she keep asking who was coming to her "happy birthday." She told me she didn't want to go to her "happy birthday" and she didn't want people to sing her happy birthday and she was going to hide. She was a little bit of a Momma and Daddy's girl, but in general she got into the swing of things. As you can see from the pictures Alyssa loved her chocolate "pupcake" and ran and hopped the entire time. Everyone had a wonderful time.


  1. Hi Emily! I love the blog and thanks for the invitation. It's so fun to see pictures of your family. The party looked like a great time! By the way - spring is super windy here - reminds me of Texas!

  2. Happy Birthday girls! Looks super fun. I wish we were still there celebrate with you.
