Happy 3rd Birthday

Hard to believe it's been THREE years since we had Brookston. He's growing up so fast and it's been so fun watching him grow into this sweet, fun, loving, and awesome 3 year old!

When I asked him what kind of cake he wanted, I showed him a Nemo and a Lightning McQueen...well, I was not in the least bit shocked when he chose Lightning McQueen, but I was VERY nervous as red and black are the two HARDEST colors!

I did a practice cake, red turned out great (after adding in half of a bottle of icing dye)...however the black tasted terrible! So, for party day, I made the black out of chocolate icing, so not only did the chocolate flavor take over any possible bad taste, but it also started out brown, not white, so I only had to add a very little, instead of TONS of black. I was so proud that I got black to taste good! Hahaha!

Anyway, here are some pictures from Brookston's 3rd Birthday The Little Gym!

Kaisley is really loving Little Gym! Or maybe she just loved it extra special because Daddy was there for the party!

Crab walk

Poor boy...playing so hard he was a bit hot! :)

Special ride for the birthday boy!

This seemed to be a favorite for Brookston...especially when he got to go first climbing under and finding feet to tickle!

For anyone without kids or only girls...Lightning McQueen, from the movie "Cars" is red, his number is 95. The other cars in the movie are The King (blue), number 43, and Chick Hicks (green), number 86!
Thus, the cupcakes!

Happy 3rd Birthday Brookston!!!!
