Ryan's 3rd Birthday Party

On Sunday, we held Ryan's 3rd Birthday party at our house. He had 4 grandparents, 3 great-grandparents, plus Uncle Andy and Aunt Kim and Uncle Wade, Aunt Abbie, and Saylor as guests. We served a brunch of egg bake, spinach-bacon quiche, caramel rolls, cinnamon rolls, frozen fruit cups and then it was time to open presents!  It was funny to see that 3 different families who all live in different towns ended up with the same birthday wrapping paper!

If you're looking for ideas for three-year-old birthday presents, he got a lot of great things that he will love playing with! I'm listing them just so I can remember when writing thank-you notes later on and because I think it's helpful to know what kids are into at this age!

Bruder Cattle Transport Truck and hay bales

Holstein Cows, a Texan Longhorn bull, calf, and a skunk (because every farm needs a skunk, according to Wade)

A giant box of 5 floor puzzles
Stomp Rocket Jr. Glow Kit (I'll do another post on this with video)
Collapsible Soccer Goal and Soccer Ball; Nerf Football
Books: A is for Autumn, Clifford's Best Day at School, ChimpanSneeze, a series of Marley the Dog books, and a Winnie the Pooh coloring book.

Besides begin excited about the football cake (and presents, of course), Ryan just really enjoyed getting to see his extended family (and he's excited to see his other cousins next weekend).  We have a very happy (and tired) almost-three-year-old. Thanks to everyone for coming to his party!
