Quinn turned 3 years old on June 9th – and we had quite the all-day birthday celebration for him!
The day started bright and early with the birthday boy waking us up in bed. Apparently, the OK to Wake! Clock was “not working.” Ummm…? Usually, we’d send Qman right back to bed, but it was his birthday and he was much too excited to sleep!
Once we were awake and officially moving, we headed downstairs to open Quinn’s birthday “prize” from Aunt Sib. She told Mal and me what was inside, and we couldn’t be more excited to give it to him. Quinn’s present was a Ghostbusters Proton Pack, and he absolutely loved it! You should have seen his face when he opened the box! He immediately asked to wear it and then went hunting for ghosts around the house. It was so cute!
After busting ghosts for awhile, we got ourselves ready for breakfast at Strawberry Fair.
I ordered Quinn a pancake with strawberries – sadly, they never showed up, even after I reminded our server, but Quinn only ate three bites before he was over it.
He did, however, eat all of the orange garnishes at the table. Ha!
I ordered the Breakfast Pizza, which was quite delicious and something I totally want to recreate for CNC.
How cute is Quinn’s 3 shirt!? I found it on ThredUp for like $5 – and it was perfect for the occasion! 🙂
After breakfast, we headed home to wait for my mom, sister, cousin Matthew, and Karli to arrive for more birthday fun.
We played outside for awhile before Quinn told me that he was hungry (probably because he barely ate any breakfast), so we headed inside to make pizza for lunch. Please note that Qman is wearing his Proton Pack. 🙂
While the boys made pizza, my mom and sister helped me put together lunch for everyone.
Quinn, how old are you today? 🙂
After lunch, we sang “Happy Birthday” to Quinn and opened presents.
Qman received the most amazing Play-Doh Town ever from Grandma. He was so pumped when he opened it! He actually ended up playing with it for most of the evening on Friday night and then a few more times on Saturday and Sunday. It was definitely a big hit! Thanks, Grandma!
After that, we all went to Hornstra Farms to visit the cows and get some ice cream before saying goodbye to my family.
It was such a great way to spend the day, and Qman said he had an “awesome” birthday! 🙂
