The mighty Quinn has turned 3 (with the attitude of a 12 year old). Here are the highlights:
It started last weekend when Grandma Newman took Quinn to Build-a-Bear for his chance to make a bear. All was great until the stuffing machine scared the be-jeebies out of him!
(just minutes before the horror)
But all was soon well and he made an adorable fireman bear named "Burnie".
His birthday was on Monday, so it was kind of low-key. McDonald's playland, brownies, and getting his cool "shake and go" racetrack. Honestly, I ache to play with this toy. It's so fun!
Friday was his first real party. Of course it was Thomas...
(cutest train ever!)
Li-Li was in attendance, as well as a few boys from the neighborhood
We made train cars to go to the "Island of Sodor" (ie, my dance studio). I had done this party for Parker when he was 3 and we drew train tracks on my gi-normous driveway. This still worked, but we had no tracks.
Bill was the conductor. This was the night train (notice the light...we were getting desperate!) There aren't too many pics of this, as I was being the tunnel with my dad.
They decorated cute little train cars as their cake....this was my mom's wonderful idea. This way I didn't have to recreate a Thomas cake. My cousin Ashley can attest to the trickiness of that! Hers was gorgeous and I could not recreate it.
So...I feel like he's been properly celebrated. He is my child who can go from uber-sweet to screaming tantrum in 10 seconds flat, but I love him dearly. Happy Birthday, gorgeous!
