Today is Alice's 3rd birthday!
Here's our day in review:
Ben took the day off of work, so that's extra fun!
For breakfast, I made birthday waffles with sprinkles.
She was excited about it until we lit candles and sang.
Then, she declared,
"I don't want to be 3!
I want to be 2 1/2!!"
and ran away from the table.
She quickly came back when we said we'd blow out the candles for her.
Then, Alice went to Nana's for some birthday fun.
Got a special toy from Target.
Ice cream before lunch.
She loved it!
For lunch, she requested Noodles.
She loved when I told her she's 3 and I'm 33.
After naps, we went to the zoo!
New elephant exhibit, new male lion, feeding the giraffes, riding the carousel.
This picture makes me laugh:
Riding the carousel is pretty much her most favorite thing in the world.
Today, she decided it was time to graduate from sitting on the bench to riding on a horse.
She loved it...even though it doesn't look that way from the picture.
For dinner, she wanted a burrito.
Then, she had a couple gifts to open.
My Granny sent her a bear that I loved as a child.
So many sweet memories!
Alice has been strangely interested in "beetle cars".
She wants a VW bug in a bad way.
When I explained to her that cars cost a lot of money.
she started collecting spare change for her beetle car.
So, Ben and I got her this bank:
(She's wearing the butterfly pancho her Nana made her.)
She was thrilled and promptly put the birthday money she received inside of it.
She did clarify that she wants a green beetle car when she turns 16, not a blue one.
It was a fun day!
One more thing!
Alice cut her first 2-year molar yesterday!
