In anticipation for this day, I purchased (way back in January) a cake pan that makes little cars and trucks (much like Zeke's dinosaur and train cakes). I baked them in the morning, and during the boys naptime in the afternoon, Josh got all creative and decorated them, creating a little scene in the process.
We got him some more cars and trucks (and tractors!) to add to his little collection. I even found a "Mack" for the set (Mack is one of their favorite charactes from the movie "Cars").
As an extra treat, on Sunday, I took Deacon to Cold Stone Creamery to cash in on his free birthday ice cream. He picked strawberry ice cream with M&Ms. And he refused to share.
His refusal to share with me "forced" me to get an ice cream of my own, which, Deacon was more than happy to make me share with him. I got up to buy that bottle of water and came back to see him helping himself. Must be nice to be the birthday boy.
And here he is, as all the sugar starts to set it.
Turning 3, also brought some changes for Deacon. A few weeks ago, Josh finally took the rest of the crib pieces off of Deacon's bed, so now it is actually a bed.
