Adam & Andrew had a very special third birthday. We started our celebration the night before by sampling the cupcakes they were taking to school for their class party.
Then we of course had to pose with our pink sharpie highlighter:
Then it was time to get their height measured. They've both grown a lot (around 3.25"!!), and stayed in nearly exact proportion to each other with Adam having about 3/4" on Andrew (although to my eyes it looks like more than that in person, it must have something to do with the way Andrew stands/hunches).
Then the boys enjoyed a special breakfast of chocolate donuts, yummy!
The boys were excited to wear their special custom birthday shirts to school:
After school we surprised the boys by going to Chuck E Cheese's with Granny, Aunt Dana, Ben, Aunt Rachel, Lauren, Luke & Kate
Andrew's Sensory Issues keep him from enjoying a lot of things there like riding the carousel, this make me sad for him:
But he LOVES to go there and run around and watch what everyone else is doing.
Adam had a blast on all the rides
Playing Air Hockey for the first time was a BIG hit!
After Chuck E Cheese, Dana treated the boys to Snickerdoodles from Great American Cookie Co, YUM!!
The boys were exhausted from all their fun and pumped up on sugar and junk, not the best combination but I wanted to make their birthday extra special since as twins they have to share their birthday.
After a quick nap we ate dinner at our friends house where we celebrated with the boys' friend Mason who turned three the day before, lots of fun! I unfortunately left my camera at home =-(.
This coming Saturday the boys are having a little party where they attend gymnastics class. In the past we have invited lots of our friends and had big celebrations but this year we are scaling it back and just having a kids party for their same age close friends. Since we are not having it at home or my parents' it will be less stress for our family since we won't have to set up and clean up. All we have to do is show up with the awesome cake that Granny made! Adam & Andrew are so excited. The theme is Buzz Lightyear (or Light-Hair as Andrew calls him ;-) and the kids are all coming dressed as super heroes.
