Alec is 3!

It's official - Alec is 3! We've celebrated all week starting with his race car themed birthday party this past Saturday.

The food! We had pizza, veggies, fruit, chicken, and tortilla pinwheels.

The cake - I love this cake, it turned out so cute.

We also had some cupcakes for the little ones.

Candle time!

Alec needed a little help blowing out the candles! :)

Party favors for the kids

Fun sticker crafts for the kiddos.


Skating (for some!)

Pinata Time!

Our family after the party. :)
We celebrated with a party at a local church that has an awesome recreation center. The kids could play basketball, play at the indoor play gym, and even roller skate. Alec was a sweaty mess during the entire party, he loves to go!

Alec was so excited to have his party. He kept saying he wanted cupcakes and everyone to sing happy birthday to him while he blew out candles. Well when the time came, he almost had a meltdown. He kept saying he wanted Francesco (a Cars character) on his cupcake (which I did not have!). He stalled on blowing out the candles, so another little boy at the party took matters into his own hands and blew out the candles. We lit the candles again and Alec took another try. You just never know what to expect out of a 3 year old!

 On Alec's actual birthday, he picked out some cupcakes to share with his class. He wanted orange and blue cupcakes (pretty sure the teachers and the other parents hate me right now).  Alec loved having a party with this friends from school.

After Alec's party at school, I took the rest of the day off from work to have a little fun. We headed over to the Painted Pig and painted pottery - we made a Halloween plate and Alec painted a football and a little pumpkin magnet. I think I had more fun than he did! We finished the day with a make up session at the Little Gym.

I can't believe my little guy is 3! Time flies!!
