My Third Birthday

Story told by: Lainey

I turned three years old today!

Lainey's 3rd Birthday

We’re at Na Na and Ba Ba’s house in Tacoma for the weekend. I woke up to some fun decorations!

Mommy surprised me with Frozen cereal that I’ve been asking for at the store for the last two months. I was so excited!

What a great way to start my third year!

After church with Na Na and Ba Ba, we came home to have lunch and enjoy the weather before naps. I was a big help with watering.

We could sure get used to the sun!

While I was napping, Na Na worked on my beautiful birthday cake. I requested chocolate, so Na Na made it happen!

As soon as I woke up, I got to open presents (finally!).

I didn’t need any help with opening presents. I was a pro!

My favorite gift of the day had to be this amazing princess dress! Thank you Na Na and Ba Ba for this perfect present!

Don’t I look beautiful?!

Then we called Grandma and Grandpa so I could open my present from them. (I’ll have more presents to open from them when Grandma comes to my house next week.)

It was the movie “Big Hero 6!” Thanks Grandma and Grandpa. I can’t wait to watch it with you!

After we opened presents, we went outside to play for a bit. (I naturally had to wear my princess dress.)

We brought out some of my birthday balloons.

If you can’t tell, I’m having an amazing day! I wish it was my birthday every day!

We went out to dinner at Five Guys so I could have french fries (my favorite food). We started with peanuts, so I popped an entire peanut (shell and all) into my mouth. Not so good. Na Na showed me how to do it correctly.

Henry and I had grilled cheese and french fries. Everyone else was unclear on what exactly they were ordering, so they all ended up with double cheeseburgers. Woah! They were huge!

And they were unaware of the size of the fries as well, so they went quite overboard. We brought home half of a large bag of fries. Hopefully Na Na can put them to good use!

After dinner we came home to eat some cake and ice cream! Everyone started by singing “Happy Birthday” to me.

I blew out the first candle pretty easily.

The next two proved to be a little more difficult.

This final blow put out the candles, which means it was finally time to eat!

Most people were too full to eat, but I know I can always count on Daddy to be my eating buddy! Thanks for always being there for me!

We finished the cake and ice cream off with some party blowers. After putting on PJs and brushing my teeth, I ended my day with watching a little bit of “Big Hero 6.” Thank you to everyone for such a special third birthday. I’m already looking forward to when I turn four!
