Beware of many pictures ahead! We did not have anything really special planned. To be honest, Earle and I are still pretty exhausted and finally crashing after all of this transition. My parents came for a visit and we just had a family party. Collin wanted a "bowling" birthday party. I thought that was pretty funny. I am not sure why, the only reason I can think that he wanted this was because of playing bowling on the Wii. The night before, Ben and I decorated a 'birthday party scene' in our dining room after Collin had gone to bed. I just had gone out to the dollar store and bought less than 20 dollars worth of stuff...but for a boy turning three and fantasizing about a birthday party...this was awesome stuff! I'll try to narrate through the pictures.
Waking up to see something special down the stairs.... A fun party set up just for Collin! Yellow is his favorite color..so we had lots of yellow!
He could not even believe his eyes!!
He is three!
My sweet baby boy! Yes those are M&M's in his hand...they are his favorite...and he likes the yellow ones.
Blowing out his candles to his chocolate bowling ball cake...that he requested. Such a funny little guy!
Opening presents!! Thank you Amanda and Ryan!
He loved his bubble gun!
REALLY loved it.
Why not bombard us from the upstairs?
A tiny boy throwing skeeballs is a life threat to anyone within his throwing circumference...although he loved it!
Getting ready to bowl! Oh my...birthday DREAM come true!
Later that week playing in the backyard with Papa and Cindy.
