More Birthday Fun

Some highlights from Caroline's birthday!

Granddad & Grandmama met us at the park for a birthday picnic lunch!

Say cheese!! Caroline loves her new camera from Aunt Becca & Rhett.

Here is Caroline opening the picnic basket tea set from Nana & Grandpa.

... and of course we immediately had a tea party!

When Caroline unwrapped this dress she said, "This is exactly what I wanted!" She wore the "princess" dress from Nana & Grandpa the rest of the evening and put it back on again today.

You can tell by the look on her face how proud Caroline is to be 3, and we are so proud of her, too.

Caroline is 3 today!

Happy Birthday, Caroline!!!

Brian and I can't believe Caroline is already 3 years old. She has become such a big girl this past year. We celebrated with cinnamon rolls for breakfast this morning and opened gifts. Caroline got Hungry Hungry Hippos, which we've been playing all morning long. She also got a wooden recorder...we've been reading the Brambly Hedge books that Nana sent her, and she loves the one where the little mouse gets a recorder for his birthday, so we got her one too. Caroline asked for pizza for her birthday dinner. We'll have brownies tonight, and her party is on Saturday. We have more surprises in store for her, but we won't tell you about them until she gets them herself.

Also, Caroline wants to say Happy Birthday to Grandpa, as today is his birthday too! And a big Happy Birthday to Nana, since her birthday is tomorrow.
