Sorry, I'm still talking birthdays...stay with me!! I'll be moving on eventually. Part of me just can't believe my little girl turned three years old! Birthdays are a big deal for me, especially since now that I'm "old" my own birthday isn't so much a big deal anymore. I have to celebrate other birthdays like they're my own! And, we did a lot of celebrating!!
We started the day with a special breakfast treat!
Look! There's actually three candles!
Later in the morning, I had to bribe Mikayla to go to library time. She was being a bit stubborn (what's new?!). Thankfully, she decided that she wanted to go with 5 minutes to spare to get out the door and make it on time. She got to wear her "birthday princess" ribbon and loved it!
Ryan came home from work and surprised Mikayla with flowers. She was so cute holding them in her arms. I didn't get a picture of the moment because he surprised us by coming home a little earlier than expected and so I wasn't "camera ready". Here are the flowers with all of her birthday card greetings.
For dinner, we headed to Red Robin for a free kid's meal!
After dinner we headed to Target for a new bike helmet for a gift she was going to get later that evening (but she didn't know that yet!)
Her first computer...
(Gotta share that I found this on clearance at Target back in January for 50% off! I was so excited and knew exactly that I would be saving it for her birthday.)
