Ben's Birthday

Ben turned 3 on Saturday. What a special day we had! Phone calls from all over the place! He enjoyed the special attention, I think!

Presents!!! A new tow truck. He got a new play tent with a sleeping bag too but somehow I didn't get a pic of it.

And a new tricycle! (The bike he got for Christmas is just too big for him! Luckilly he'll grow into it! :) But in the meantime...he needed this!

He couldn't wait to get it outside!

We let the kids decide where the want to go for dinner on their birthday. Ben decided he wanted to go to Chuck E. Cheese. "Are you sure?" I kept asking. Oh yeah, that's where we went alright. I was able to talk him out of eating there though, thank goodness. Their food is nasty!!! So we took Grandma with us and they had a really good time. Then we went to Red Robin for dinner. They LOVE how loud and obnoxious their birthday songs are. Me, not so much. Afterwards, Jon said, "it's just so loud." And it is!

It was Talon's 1st real visit to CEC. He was tiny last time. He LOVED it! But really, what kid wouldn't?

Jon & Ben on some ride/game. I dont' even know what it was. But they enjoyed it!

Simon and Grandma on the virtual roller coaster! I guess my mom was so loud on the thing a guy said to her afterward, "Sounds like you had fun!" :)

Another great celebration! I can't believe it's been 3 years! I remember having him, like it was yesterday! We love you Ben - so much!
