And He's Three...
Yesterday's birthday was perfect!
Okay, so the cake for breakfast kind of made us all a little ill, but it was fun. I can't remember the last time I donned a birthday hat at breakfast and ate chocolate cake.
The day was pretty laid back. We made his real birthday cake, we ate junk food, we watched The Incredibles. The thing with a birthday being on a statutory holiday is that nothing is open so you are forced to take it a little easy. I liked that.
Matthew loved his gifts. Our big gift to him was a sand and water table. Since we have a backyard (a little one) now we figured we could put that outside.
The weather didn't exactly cooperate, but we still managed to fill the water table part up and have lots of fun with it.
He also got other fun stuff - a hula hoop, some books, a truck. We didn't overdo it (shockingly) and we had fun.
Then last night Matthew had his birthday party.
Because life has been busy, and because our house isn't exactly in the best condition ever, and because we are a little lazy - and mostly because my 4 year old niece thought this was the coolest idea ever - we booked Matt's party at an indoor playground.
It was really fun!
We didn't have tons of kids -I think there were 15 in total. It was such a laid back way to have a party. The kids ran around having fun and playing. The parents chatted off and on. We had a super cool monster truck cake. It was just a lot of fun.
