Birthday Highlights

Well, we ended up taking over 300 photos today. Somehow, I doubt that you want me to share all of them with you. Here's the first round of birthday photos for you to enjoy.

Before even getting the boys completely dressed, I decided to let Nathan open up his card from Matt & Sue. He was thrilled to find three dollars inside! He immediately ran over to give Ian one dollar and then quickly decided that I should have one dollar as well. How sweet is he???

Don't you miss the age where a simple balloon made you this happy? I know that I sure do!

I guess it's just as much fun to take your balloons outside and immediately let go of them too. At least that's what is making Nathan and Ian so happy in this picture. They wanted to let all of the balloons go, but Mommy wouldn't let them. I asked Ian why he wanted to let them fly away and he told me it's the best way to share them with other kids. Ah, the logic of a three-year-old.

Two of my most handsome boys...the third was off eating wild green onions that grow in our front yard.

Can you tell how much Nathan liked his huge Mickey Mouse from Grandma and Grandpa S.? He carried him everywhere until it was time to drag Nathan out of the house so Daddy could put together his brand new art desk.

Our two 3-year-olds (for the next 6 weeks). How crazy is it that these two boys are the same age for 6 weeks every year. Ian is going to HATE that when he is a bit older.

Looks like you guys had fun! Thanks for sharing. You are such a cute family and I love to hear the stories of your lives.
Nathan and Adeline should get together sometime, it sounds like they really know how to share. What a sweet heart.

Aw, that is so sweet that Nathan shared his dollars! Love it :) Love that pic of him and Ryan, very sweet. I had no idea your kids were so close in age! How did you do it?! Crazyness!
