I instagrammed my way through Wes' actual birthday sharing the fun bits of his special day, but I thought I'd share them here too. We instituted the 4 birthday gift rhyming rules for his birthday presents this year. "Something you want, something you need, something to wear and something to read." And we added a twist spreading out the deliveries throughout the day to make the fun last longer. It was the perfect way to celebrate our sweet and spunky 3 year old. The day started off with us waking our sleeping babe to have him discover the balance bike we had placed in his room in the night...
Oh, and did I forget to mention that my best friend, Jane, surprised me with a visit...it was so unexpected but long overdue. We sure do love and miss her!
After lunch and ice cream cake at Dairy Queen we headed over to the Lynnwood Recreation Center which has a huge indoor pool area complete with a spray park and 2 twisty slides. If you've never been then you need to go...immediately. Seriously, they have open swims multiple times a day, seven days a week. It's our new favorite thing to do indoors and it's really reasonably priced (I don't get paid to advertise like this :))
It was so much fun, just looking at these photos (many taken by my sweet mother-in-law) makes me want to do it all over again...I'm sure Wes' wouldn't mind!
