Birthday Celebration and outside fun!!!

As most of you already now, it was Logan's third birthday last week. Mike was unable to be home on the actual day so we celebrated when Mike was home this past weekend. I decided to make a monster truck cake and opening the rest of the presents would happen too. This cake was a lot easier because I bought a mold (that I know I will use again and maybe others) and I used chocolate donuts for the wheels. The car cake had to be propped up with other cake to make it "higher" for the monster truck effect. It was a lot of fun to make and Logan enjoyed seeing the creation come to life! Definitely was a lot of cake left over which Mike took back to training with him this week! Enjoy all the pictures!

A little tribute to Austin. He is such a character and has been growing up so much! He is starting to have his own personality when it comes to playing with his brother. He always tries to kiss him and lay on Logan. It just ends up the other way around! Austin loves to slide down and climb up at the same time. Always has the biggest smile on his face! He enjoys sitting on the chair and can climb in it himself. Such a little man! Some updates for him is that his top molars have started to break through and now we can give him a whole new bunch of food! He signs more and milk with such pride and we are going to work on please and thank you now. He loves to bring me toys to play with and gets upset when I don't sit down to play. He will sit in my lap to make sure I stay there. He loves blocks right now and is actually getting pretty good and connecting them together (kinda like big legos). It is so nice that the weather has gotten better because I can't wait to go to the beach with two walking and playing little ones!

Logan got a cowboy outfit from Mike's Grandparents for his birthday. So cute! He loves to wear the hat so he looks like Woody from Toy Story.

Mike got him a t-ball set to start playing sports with him! It will take a little while for Logan to get the hang of it, but I love the Father - Son time it brings! I love how happy and excited Logan is in the pictures below!

Here Logan is saying "cheese" and I am trying to get a picture of him and his new watch...he is so proud of it!

I also bought a bubble gun (they are so cheap!) and he has had a blast with it! Otis loves to chase and eat the bubbles so we all get a kick out of it. So great he can do it all on his own!

what a fun post with such adorable pictures. Your cake was so great and what 3 year old boy wouldn't be just thrilled to have that! Such a wonderful mamma!

Looking forward to seeing you guys get to enjoy the beach someday soon :)

Also, LOVE the cowboy outfit. Little boys like to play dress-up too! You just have to get them an assortment of those manly costumes!
