Caroline turned 3 last Friday! We decided to keep her birthday small and sweet (just like her, despite her sour moments) and go to her favorite restaurant, Red Robin (or as she calls it "Red Restroom"). Here are a few pics from her fabulous night out dressed up like Dorothy:
After Red Restroom, we headed home to have cake and open gifts.
Before going inside the house, Jake & Caroline had a discussion about Caroline's wish list. I just love this picture. I think she is telling him she really wanted a barbie cake.
Speaking of barbie cake, don't laugh at this picture. Yep, that's Barbie wrapped in plastic wrap and stuffed in a store bought cake. I just couldn't spend $40 bucks on one of those barbie cakes from Kroger's. Yes, I could of made a cake but there was never any time. Caroline is always awake and always tied to my leg. No sneaky moves past this 3 year old!!
Dusty left for Alaska on Friday, so we had one more hoop la with the kids before he left and before the kids start school. We went to a day game (a first) and had perfect seats (yep, gotta splurge when you're seeing the Braves)! Caroline was the only one in the family dressed in Astros gear (we are on the hunt for Braves gear for her).
We had so much food it was crazy. When we bought our "perfect" tickets, we got a deal to receive 5 food vouchers. Our kids were in sugar heaven.
The Astros rabbit was kind enough to give CC a ball, despite the rest of her family being dressed in Braves attire.
LOVE THIS PICTURE OF MISS CC. SHE IS HAVING SO MUCH FUN!
"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." Gordon B. Hinckley
Enjoy the little things; for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things. -Robert Brault
