We had a wonderful 2 days celebrating JP turning 3! Friday was his actual birthday so the day was all about him!
After we dropped Ruthie off at school I took him to Chick-fil-A for a birthday breakfast (I had free chicken minis!) and some play time. After CFA we ran some last minute errands to get ready for his birthday and then did a super exciting thing...we went to the car wash! JP LOVES the car wash. He was quite thrilled.
After that we went home and read books until it was time to pick up Ruthie. After naps we headed to the Plex for the activity that JP had been waiting DAYS to do...bounce houses! He spotted them when we went to the trampoline park the other day and I promised him we would come back on his birthday and do the bounce houses. He had the BEST time...and Evelyn, who is like another sister to him, came along too.
After the bounce houses we headed to meet Paul at Moe's for JP's birthday dinner and then off to Duck Donuts for dessert!
After eating we headed home to let him open his presents. We already had his family party where he got his gifts from Aunts and Uncles and grandparents so he had cards from family and presents from us. He got $3 from each of the grandparents (he loves "moneys"), a Winnie the Pooh card from Aunt Ruth and Uncle Ben, some superhero dress up outfits from the Novaks and a Spiderman action figure from his sisters, and a big firetruck from Paul and I. GiGi and PaPa also sent JP some pictures of Paul when he was around JP's age. JP loved the pics! He and Paul went and played with his new toys while I put the girls to bed. They had a great time! We thoroughly enjoyed spending some alone time with our sweet baby!
JP went to bed on his birthday a happy boy. He felt very celebrated all day...from bounce houses, to cards, to birthday phone calls/face time lots of people made our boy feel oh so special!
On Saturday we celebrated his birthday with his friends with a party at My Gym! He didn't really know what to expect because we didn't do birthday parties last year because we went to Disney and Ellie is the only birthday we've had so far this year and she chose to have a friend over to spend the night. But by the time the day was over JP thought birthday parties were great fun and he's ready for the next one!
