We did three big with a weekend of celebrating. Ben's third birthday fell on a Friday this year and we celebrated the day with swim lessons which are easily one of Ben's favorite things to do (possibly because he associates lessons with the sucker he gets from his instructor each time) followed by lunch at Chick-Fil-A. Bennett and Lakin do not appreciate chicken as a superior meat - in fact, they don't ever eat meat. But momma loves herself a cobb salad and some waffle fries so it was PB&J for the kittens and a gourmet fast food meal for mom and Papa and Gigi (also in town for the celebration).
Friday night, Benny opened his presents from the family.
Sunday evening we had our four close family friends over for pizza and cake. The weather was ah-mazing. So we opened up the porch doors and spent the night on the deck and in the yard.
Bennett told me today that he loved his birthday. He's already thinking about when he turns four.
