We celebrated Emma's third birthday last weekend (a week early) while Grandpa Jim was here. It seems every year, the weather leading up to Emma's birthday is mild and sunny, and then within a day or two of her actual b-day, it gets cold or rainy (or snowy, like the day she was born). So my plan to beat the weather change worked, and it was sunny and 60 for her party! (By the way, there is a chance of snow in the forecast for the rest of this week.)
The Birthday Girl!
Blowing out the candles on her "butterfly cake".
Eight of the "bigger" kids. There were a few smaller ones running around, too.
Trying out the new patio furniture!
A few of the kids went outside for a few minutes to swing. I wouldn't let Emma go out in her dress! (Okay, I feel like a horrible mom looking at this picture - but trust me, she got over it quickly!)
