Third Birthday

{ Friday, September 07, 2012 }
Its been a few months since we celebrated the bean's third birthday, but I'm very excited to share some pictures from her party.

We started the day bright and early making a new line on the bean's growth chart.

She was so happy that she was three (feet tall) on her third birthday!

Then off to the park, which has become a birthday location tradition.  The bean had requested an elmo theme, which you know I got a little carried away with.

Here's the bean sampling all the food before the guests arrived.

We couldn't find an elmo bounce house, so the bean chose a disney princess bouncer.  I wish we had been able to get a good picture of it--it was quite impressive to see all that pink in the middle of the elmo party!

The kids spent most of their time in the bounce house, but we also had a craft, pin the nose on elmo, and the bean's aunt did some amazing face painting.

The princess theme (sub theme?) didn't stop at the bounce house--the bean also wanted an ice cream cake with all the princesses on it.  How could we say no on her birthday?

By her third birthday, I finally got around to making the birthday crown I've been planning forever.  I'm really happy with how it turned out.  Its a little big, but hopefully she'll grow into it!

It was such a whirlwind day--we never did get a shot of the three of us together, but I really like this one of the boy and I.  Also, no bump shots all day.

It wasn't until we were all getting ready for bed that we realized we hadn't taken our birthday sign picture, so we stepped out on our deck and tried to get a quick shot as the sun was going down.

I can't believe she's three (and a few months) already! Wow. Happy belated birthday, Bean.

That Elmo fruit platter is insanely creative. I love it.
