We kicked off Sawyer's third birthday with a piratey party on Sunday afternoon.
There were presents!
Cousins to play with!
Isabel loves her cousin Sawyer. She calls him "my Yo-Yo." Easier to say than Sawyer, I suppose... It's pretty cute!
Gramma was there and Auntie Manda too. They were freezing. The hot summery weather I ordered has been delayed apparently...
A quiet moment to contemplate turning three... and to dig through the pirate's booty bag for gold coins!
And now, for the world's most amazing pirate ship cake! Seriously, so proud of the way this turned out! I was really worried, but I think it turned out fantastically well. I took about a hundred photos of it. Here's one of them.
See? Sawyer thought it was awesome, too!
Thomas really loved the pirate hat and eye patch. I'm thinking he might like some of his own.
That was Sunday. Tuesday was the day he actually turned three ("I'm free now!" he kept telling us. "Woo-hoo!") He was so excited when he discovered the trike waiting for him in the living room that morning. And check out the bucket at the rear, also full of gifts!
In the evening, my parents came for dinner, and then we went for a walk so Sawyer could try out his new tricycle.
Then it was back to the house for more presents and more cake!
And already he's asking, "When is my next birthday party? Is it soon?!"
