Lamb 3's birthday photos-finally posted!

Ram's parents brought presents and came to celebrate a few days before Lamb 3's birthday. We are quite excited that they live near enough to celebrate birthdays with us.
Lamb 3 was excited to get a truck like Lamb 1 and 2 have. Now if we could find the box after moving that has their trucks! Can't you see 3 boys driving these trucks around the yard?

The favorite gifts this year-
Lamb 2-a set of Lego minifigures
Lamb 1-a box of plain Legos (he's going to have to use his imagination to build!)
Lamb 3-Duplo Zoo

Here's Grandpa and Grandma and Ram watching/helping build all the new Legos. Ewe helped put the Duplo together. Everything was built by the next day.

Lamb 3 chose this restaurant for dinner. After we got there we found out he picked that restaurant because he wanted chocolate milk and applesauce. We could have gone basically any where that he could have had chocolate milk. The adults liked his choice though.

I thought Lamb 3 should have a Thomas birthday train like his brothers received for their birthdays at his age. He wasn't too excited about it, I think the Thomas phase has been overtaken by the Duplo/Lego phase. Lamb 1 was excited that Lamb 3 received a present from Mama and Papa though-we don't usually give gifts as Grandmas and Grandpas and Aunt give enough.

Aunt Hannah made this banner for Lamb 3. 

Lamb 3 chose chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting. I cheated and used a mix and can of frosting with the excuse that we just moved. Aunt Hannah made some decorations that said "4" and he also chose 4 star candles.

The Lambs must be getting older because these are all the photos I took of 2 days of celebrating Lamb 3's birthday. (One day with grandparents, one day with our family.)
Lamb 3's meal choices-breakfast: Monkey Bread
lunch: egg salad
supper: chocolate chip pancakes

Ram had a church meeting on Lamb 3's birthday so we celebrated with supper the night before, breakfast and lunch with cupcakes on the day of his birthday.

I am happy that my youngest is 4. Everyone is daytime potty trained and can talk! Lamb 3 has grown taller in the last few months and doesn't look like a baby any more. This helped me not be sad that my youngest is 4.
