Gage Turns 3!!!

I can't believe how big my baby boy is. 
I can still call him that since his lil sis hasn't made her debut! 
We celebrated his birthday on Saturday afternoon, because Mondays are busy at our house!
We went to the Family Fun Center and did "race cars",
then went to Red Robin for dinner,
then came home for presents and his Toy Story cake!
He had a super fun day and kept singing Happy Birthday to himself!
He sure is a cutie!

 Gagey got to ride first with Daddy! He was a little nervous, but mostly excited!

Then it was Maisey's turn. 

They each got to go twice, and I wasn't sure if I would even fit behind the wheel of a go-kart, and even if I did, wasn't sure it was a great idea with the babe, so Shaun did all the driving for all 4 turns! Lucky him!

 Each of the kids waited in line with Grammy! I couldn't believe how patient they both were.

Gagey showin us how old he is!

 His birthday dinner: Mac N' Cheese, fries, and ketchup! Yum!!!

 He loves when the waiters sing to everyone else, but he got pretty nervous when they sang to him. But he scarfed down the ice cream pretty quick!

 He was really anxious to get home and open his presents! They had been tempting him in mommy's closet for a day. He knew exactly which one he wanted to open first!

 A new race track!

 Grammy got him a Lightning McQueen tent so he can have a sleep over at her house after the baby is born.

 I went SIMPLE this year, and took him to Safeway, let him look through the cake book and pick which ever one he wanted! Of course we ended up with Buzz and Woody! 

 I couldn't get the knife fast enough. He wanted cake, and he wanted it now!

 He shoved his whole piece in his mouth,

told me he was all done,

then got to some serious car racing business!!!

He had such a fun afternoon! I loved watching him get so excited about every little thing!

Happy Birthday Gage! He sure is a cutie! And I'm glad you like the car seat canopy! I'm glad I know what one is now:) If I ever have a Spring/Summer baby, I'll make one for myself!
