D is 3!

My little girl turned 3 this year!  I can't believe it.  It really doesn't seem like it has been that long.  Now if you don't know, my kids were due the same day a year apart.  Yes, Irish twins!  No it was not planned that way, and yes they are the same age for 4 days since the boy came late, and the girl came on time.  Every year we have 1 family/friends birthday party for the both of them, since their birthdays are actually the same week.  This year, L's birthday actually fell on Father's day, so we had the party the weekend before.  They really wanted some of their friends to come.  It was a small party, but tons of fun.  D picked a princess theme of course.  I attempted a different princess castle cake.  I'm not really happy with how it turned out, I feel that it is lacking something.  Oh well. 

On her actual birthday she woke up to find a small stack of presents waiting for her by the couch.  She was really happy to see a Toy Story card from mom and dad.  She got a Barbie fishing pole, a play guitar, a wooden doll car, and a My Little Pony.  On their birthday's we let them choose where they would like to have lunch and what they would like to do that day.  Adam took the whole week off for vacation so that we could do really fun family stuff all week.  We were able to go anywhere big, but did fun things around the house all week.  D picked going to the beach.  So we headed to Potato Creek State Park.  There we did swimming at the little beach and a little hiking.  There was even a playground for the kids to play on.  Since we were still at the beach for lunch we just grabbed food there. The kids and Adam napped in the car on the way home, and then we headed to the library by our house.  The kids got their very own library cards.  Boy were they happy about that!  D then picked a root beer stand close to home for dinner.  We topped off the day by celebrating at home with cupcakes.  I really hope she had a fantastic birthday.  I think she did!
