Isaac turns 3!

It's hard to believe that three years ago Zach and I were celebrating Valentine's Day in the labor room of the hospital in Lynchburg, VA. WOW! To say so much has happened since then would be an understatement. We've moved 3 times and were 6 weeks from having our third child.
{Feel free to laugh here, it's how I stay sane}

We decided instead of buying unneeded toys etc. that we were going to have a great day making memories together.

The day started out with Isaac meeting his very first pet, a goldfish whom he named Cal. Aunti Becki sent a Diego fish tank- it was a HIT! Even Champ enjoyed watching him swim around the tank.

It was FREEEEEEEEEZing that day so we were all bundled up and ran anytime we were outside. {We do live in Nebraska, I know I should just expect it.}
The highway was closed east of us because the high winds were causing blizzard like conditions. We never would have guessed from the clear, sunny, blue skies we saw all day.

We got tickets to see Playhouse Disney. What a great time! The kids loved seeing all their favorite Disney characters and singing and dancing along with them.

I loved seeing the looks on their faces the most.

Zach thought it was interesting that Mickey, after all the years he's been around, got the loudest cheers & applause when he came on stage.

Both kids reported Handy Manny was their favorite. Weird since they've only watched his show a few times, but Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Tigger and Pooh countless times.

And they both tried cotton candy for the first surprise that it was a hit! It was requested for meal and snacks for days.

The only request Isaac had for his birthday was blue ice cream. I was going to just add food coloring to vanilla ice cream, but found some cotton candy ice cream that had blue & pink swirls. And, as usual, Zach requested for fun-fetti cake since he doesn't eat ice cream. Up until now he's chose the kids birthday cakes for them- they both have opinions now so I'm sure that won't last much longer.

Since the Disney show was on the 14th we decided to just make that Isaac's birthday and make the whole day his. What a great decision! Zach got to be with him the whole day, and he ended up getting another awful virus the afternoon of his birthday.

Doesn't he look pitiful!

Oh, he does! But what a fun time you guys had at the show.... and the cotton candy! And the ice cream! And the cake!

What a great "Three" birthday!

(sorry for all the exclamation marks. I have a sickness.)

I am totally using your idea in the future...I bought games for him during the crazy Christmas sales, so that is what he will be getting for his birthday this year, but in the future, we are going to make a day of memories...LOVE IT!

The tank looks so cool! I'm glad he likes it and can't wait to meet Cal in two weeks :)
