My 3 Year Old

Bo turned 3 years old last week.  It's strange having a newborn and being able to look at him and think, "Gosh, it seems like yesterday Bo was your size."  Oh how far we've come...
Since Bo is our first, everything is new and we're not quite sure what to expect.  With Cruz, things seem to be a cinch.  Maybe that's why people always say that your second child is so different/easier than the first.  Not because the child is actually better, but because the parents somewhat know what to expect and how to handle it.  Or hmmm...maybe I'm thinking this just because I don't have the added stress of going to work.  Which I still am not missing one bit.

Anyways, Bo turned 3 last week.  We had a big party with the whole family and a few neighbor kids.  The anticipation was at an all time high...I think next year we may not tell Bo that we're having his birthday party until the day before or maybe even the day of.  You know, just to prevent the repeated party questions...

Since our house isn't the hugest we wanted to have the party in the backyard, but the Kansas winds weren't allowing it.  We rented a Spongebob inflatable bouncy for the kids.  It was a hit!

One of Bo's favorite gifts was this four wheeler.  He was the only kid in the neighborhood that didn't have a "ride" like this.  He was pumped when daddy carried it in.  He happily gave rides all day. Even mama and Cruz got a ride.

Here's the whole clan of kids...looking pretty serious.
Okay, now that's better...

Can't forget baby boy Cruz.  Here is chillin with mama and daddy.

Here's a few more pics from the day.

And I believe this may have been the best part of the whole day for the kiddos...
saying goodbye to Spongebob.

Looks like a fun party! Wish we could have come - need to see that precious baby again soon! And, was that a Mickey Mouse clubhouse I saw in the background?? Score! Lilah still loves her, almost 10 months later!

Such a big boy! Happy Birthday to Bo!
