Michael's 3rd Birthday Party

On Saturday, we had Michael's 3rd birthday party. It was at 3:00 in the afternoon. We invited friends and family to attend and celebrate with us. The theme for the party was Cars. This is one of Michael's favorite movies. He loves Mack and Lightning McQueen.

We borrowed a bounce house from friends and set this up in the backyard. The kids loved it and kept running in and sliding down the front. Todd grilled hot dogs and hamburgers outside. We also had potato salad, deviled eggs, chips & salsa, pulled pork BBQ and cookies. After we ate, the kids came inside and played for a while as it was getting ready to storm outside. The bounce house had to be taken down and we ate cake after that. After cake, we opened presents and then the guests started to leave.

It was a fun party and Michael got lots of neat toys. He got a large Mack, as well as a small Mack (he already had the medium Mack). He got Mickey Mouse Clubhouse sheets/comforter for his beds, some clothes, a zoo membership, swimming lessons, Hot Wheels cars, fishing rod, Cars towel and bucket, a remote control school bus, gift cards, Fisher Price fire engine/firehouse and a Radio Flyer scooter. This child has more toys than he has time to play with them!!

I made a Lightning McQueen cake and Michael loved it. Here is a picture of the cake and a picture of Michael on his big day:

And a family picture of the 4 of us!

Cute, cute, and adorable!

Love the cake. I think you did a better job than my mom did on my Michael's. Just don't ever tell her I said that.
