Logan's Belated Birthday Post...
So we have started a tradition for birthdays in out family. On your actual birthday, you get to go out anywhere you want (within reason) with just Mom and Dad. Then you also get a friend party that weekend (or whenever is convenient). We started this on Logan's 1st birthday mainly because his best friend James was out of town on Logan's birthday. So, that being said, here's how Logan's 3rd birthday went down:
For his "mom and Dad" celebration, we went to Pirate Island. It's a pizza place...on crack, basically. Pirates as servers, ship cannons that fire smoke rings, thunderstorms...let's just say we were impressed and Logan had a blast.
We also went to see Toy Story 3. It was fantastic. And Logan loved that, too. He even got to take his Woody doll he got from James :-)
For his "Friend Party," I believe I had a stroke of genius. Instead of having 10 three-year-olds running around my house and having very limited seating for the parents, I thought, "Hey...why don't we do it at the park down the road?" It was quite possibly the best idea ever. We snagged the pavilion in case it rained (which it didn't...it was perfect), set up hot dogs, all sorts of salads, and drinks. The kids played on the playground (and in the drink cooler of ice) while the adults all got to sit back and relax. I figure there is no point in organizing games and such at this age, so why not keep it low-key?
Logan also requested a "Cars" cake, and since I was way too busy this year to actually make one, I was happy to oblige by getting a store-bought one. He didn't seem to mind.
He made out quite well in terms of presents (THANKS to all the grandparents and aunts and uncles!!!) from family and friends and I think 3 is going to be a good year for the little guy!
