Carter's Birthday Extravaganza!

So Carter had quite the Birthday week! From Grammy coming to town and spoiling him, to a small party with friends, and a little party with the Millers(my sister)! He started to get confused to which day was hi real birthday, but he really didn't care, just as long as he had friends, familly, cake, and a few presents..he was a happy birthday boy! My mom came in town at the last minute the week before his birthday just to hang out. We went to Sea World for his birthday from Grammy, which he loved. HE even got to take home a shamu stuffed animal, which I would never usually let him do, but Grammy was nice and bought it for him. Grammy was then so nice and made him the cutest Super Hero cape! I helped just a little bit. We call it his "SUPER C" Cape. HE loves running around the house acting like Dash from incredibles, buzz light year, super man, etc. Sawyer even got a Super S cape! THey look so cute together! Thanks Grammy! The boys loved having their Grammy in town for just a couple of days, she spoiled them rotten and loves them so much!!
Over the weekend before Carters birthday we had a little family party with my sister and her family (The Millers) in Huntington. We went to Prehistoric Pets first so the boys could see all the reptiles. They got to see some crazy, big, but cool reptiles, they loved it. We went there last year for carters birthday too, but Mason (carters cousin) didn't get to go last year so we thought we would do it again. We then headed to the park in huntington and had carters cool motorcycle cake. That's all he cared about, is if he got his motorcycle cake, and his motorcycle bike! He had been talking about how he wanted a "motorcycle party" ever since his uncle Jeff got a cool motorcycle cake for his birthday. I tried my best to make the same cake my sister Lauren made for my brother Jeff, but she did way better. By the time it was time to eat the cake, the frosting was kind of melting off and it was looking a little beat up. Oh well, he still loved it. He had so much fun with his cousin mason being silly together. It's always fun to get together with my sister and her family!
Lastly Carter had a fun little friends get together at PlayWerx. He had so much fun and loves being with his little friends. We only had a few friends but it was still lots of fun. He had quite the birthday week and loved all of his celebrations! He loves being 3 years old now! What a big boy! I love my carter man!!

I know this is so long, but I had to record it for memories.

Grammy, Sea World & Super Hero's!

Thanks Shelly for sharing all of the fun turning 3 events in Carter's life. He is such a special little boy and I love and miss him so much. Both PaPa and I got a laugh out of the scared look on Sawyer's face coming down the slide with his big brother. We also loved ichatting and seeing Carter run around in his Super C cape. Sawyer looks so adorable in his Super S cape too. Fun pictures. Fun time. Please give those cute kiddies hugs & kisses from me. ILYT oxoxox

it's been a while since I checked out the blog. Your boys have both grown up so much. I can't believe Carter is 3 and little Sawyer is almost one. Two cute boys with one super cute mama! Looks like Carter had a fun birthday!
