wes is "tree!"

today wes turns 3.  we've been celebrating for a week, but he's still excited about it!

this past weekend we celebrated at our house with a "byot" party. "bring your own toy" for those of y'all out of the loop. riding toy, that is. i don't know why we asked everyone to bring their own because between us and our neighbors, we have enough riding toys to supply a small army of 3 year olds. but they had a blast.


and then they ate cake.

reed was wishing it was july so he could have a piece.

 and then the little people went to town on a pinata.

william had to finish it off.

and wes didn't care that he could be scoring large amounts of candy to eat later. he just wanted to open the first pack of skittles he came to and get them in his mouth as fast as he could. he would live off of sugar alone if i let him.

reed wanted a turn, but he settled for chewing on the bat.

and while the little people were raking in the candy, this is what our cul-de-sac looked like. maybe we could supply 2 small armies of 3 year olds!

but, i think thiis might be the first time this has happened in the history of the world, there were no tears! no meldowns. nobody fought. nobody got hurt. we needed to have a party after the party to celebrate that!!

but we settled for eating more cake. because it was my birthday on saturday.

i'm thinking that next year i need to get a pinata.
