We were in UT for about a day and a half before we decided to hit the road to Spokane, WA. The kids did so great on their first 12 hour drive. This is them about 30 minutes or so into the drive.
Asher turned 3 on August 6th, so we had all the fam over to Chris and Heidi's to celebrate. Heidi bought this delicious triple chocolate cake from Costco,
it got a little melted from the heat, hence the lopsided-ness
and we put thomas the train legos on top for the decoration. Asher loved it. I can't even describe the excitement on his face when he saw his cake. Here he is explaining to Ally about his cake and who was on top of it
Here is a video of singing happy birthday. You HAVE to watch it. He totally got that it was HIS birthday and he was so excited. He is pretty much the cutest and sweetest kid ever, and this video is the proof!!
Sayer thought Asher's birthday cake was pretty great too!
After cake, we opened presents. Among other things, he got a scooter and a helmet from Nana and Papa and he was so excited.
He loves scooters and is always taking other kids' at the park and riding them. Unfortunately, this scooter broke on the second day he had it, so we took it back. I think I will wait until he turns 4 to get him another one.
I think he had a very fun birthday, and he now knows that he is 3. I can hardly believe it myself. He is getting to be such a big boy and talks non-stop. He is very curious, loves people, playing with cars, trucks and trains, reading, and is a smart little guy. We love him.
Happy Birthday buddy!
