Today my little Sam is 3 years old! We celebrated with a family party on Saturday. Sam had a smashing time. He's such a big kid now. So talkative, so creative, so adorable!
The night before I set up streamers, balloons, presents, and a new play tent. The tent was an immediate hit. Sam reacted on the stairs like it was a magical Christmas morning.
Later (eons later it seemed) (my scheduling, but kid anxiety made it seem like forever) the family was gathered for a midday brunch.
Sam soon proved to be an expert at present unwrapping.
Jack was a super older brother. He help back very well and let Sam really enjoy opening the presents. Jack also quickly inspected each one for age appropriateness and share-ability.
(Sam fell on his face a few days prior, his teeth cut both the inner and outer bottom lip. That's the black scab you see on his face.)
For months (literally!) Sam has been asking for a Bob the Minion birthday cake. I think it turned out lovely! (Though I'm miffed the cake was dry. I even used a cake soak!)
We went to the mall for playtime and shopping. The boys each got a Build-A-Bear and they are their new best buds.
Earlier in the day Sam declared that he wanted to get ice cream. We delivered.
Spoiled with a train ride through the mall. Always fun!
And we found a little playground for a quick stop before dinner at Red Robin.
An exhausted and happy three-year-old climbed into his new toddler bed for a long night's sleep. Happy Birthday Samwise Storm!
