We celebrated Macklin's birthday today so that we could enjoy every bit of the day together! Last Wednesday (his actual birthday) was a bit crowed and we wanted him to feel every bit of the celebration.
I set everything up last night so that when he woke up, he would have a great pile of goodies. I even made him stay in our room with Justin while I ran to get balloons and doughnuts in Eagle.
He started digging into his gifts right away!
Bubble mower, games, magnifying glass, and lawn tools from Grandma!
Money from aunts, uncles, and Grandpa and Mema! "What do I do with this?"
Happy Birthday Doughnuts while sitting at our new table from Mimi and Papa.
Out to test the mower already...it was like 30 degrees by the way!
Macy likes the table!
After gathering up, we headed to the Dinosaur Journey Museum in Grand Junction. This was our present for him - a little adventure. Macklin was a bit shy around the dinos at first, but then he warmed up. They had a big water table, sand digging area, and a cool earth quake floor to explore. It was the perfect size museum for our little guy. We stayed until the kids got tired and back to Gypsum we went.
This model was a bit gross with the spinal cord (or something) attaching the victim dinos head to his body...weird.
When we got back, we had our high school friends sing happy birthday to him before Campaigners. He had specifically been asking for his "egg candle" since Grandma sent it at Easter. He also picked the icing color....red always turns out looking more like pink. So, there you have it - pink cup cakes with an egg candle for birthday #3!
Macy gets a sneak peak at her birthday treat for tomorrow!
