A Pirate at 3!

We struggled with what to do
for Mr. T's birthday this year.
I knew I wanted to make sure
as many family members could attend
(after all, we were back in NC, right?)
and I wanted it to be something
HE would enjoy!
Not a cookout at the house,
that he would be oblivious too...

So we settled on my favorite park in all of Raleigh...
Pullen Park.

I have posted about that park before.
It was going through a MAJOR remodel
when we left NC,
and finally reopened after we
had already departed.

I had taken the kids to the 
new and improved
while we were visiting a year ago...
but was super excited to have Mr. T's 
party there!

the pictures!!

The pirate and princess
making their way
into the park...

They received a LOT of compliments
on their outfits!!

Yep, that's my oldest at the tip top
of this climbing apparatus!

Jackson staying a little closer to the 
but a GREAT shot of him!! 

I love love love
the expression on this child's face!!!

Cake time!!!

 To go with the pirate theme,
of course!
(yep, made by yours truly)

Presenting the birthday boy
with his cake!

As the norm in our family...
the birthday child gets to cut the cake.
(no fingers were removed in the cutting of this cake)

Everyone was pointing at which piece 
they wanted...

I asked who wanted a piece of the map...

 Yeah, we're bad...
we know it!

 Awesome pic of one of my sisses
and my bestie!!

How a 3yo pirate 
throws and catches 
a football...

Awesome pic of my mom and my niece.

Wild thing...

Nana caught her!

get icing on your shoes??
(no idea!!)

 I'll take that camera please...

My babies...
affectionately called
"The Littles" 
in our house.

before we headed out...

Happy 3rd Birthday 
Sweet Baby Boy!!
