My little Gary boy turned three last friday (February 6th), so on Saturday we celebrated with a construction themed birthday party! It was a hit! First the kids got to try out some of the jobs that can be found on an actual construction site. They included: hammering nails, screwing in screws, sawing wood, climbing a tall ladder, and painting a house (ours made out of cardboard). The kids, even the "big kids" loved these activities! Especially the birthday boy. When I asked him what his favorite part was he said it was the tractor cake, but I think he loved the activities just as much cause he was the last one we had to drag out of the garage for dinner! Dinner was scrumptious, and a special thanks to all those who helped me get it ready! After that we headed back into the garage so the kids could break open a cement truck pinata, just what kids need... more sugar! Then Gary boy got to unwrap his presents. I love how appreciative Gary is with each present, because he takes time to check out the new gift. It's a very unique trait of politeness he has already built in! For the finale we lit up the tractor, well backhoe, cake (which I was just so happy it turned out), sang happy birthday, and let Gary blow out the candles! What a great time! I am so grateful for those that traveled for the occasion (which many of our guests did since we live in the middle of nowhere now)! It was a very special day!
