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.
Fingernails painted.
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!
