Benjamin Turns 3!

Last Friday we celebrated Benjamin’s 3rd birthday!

We got Benjamin a balance bike. No pedals. Just push with your feet and go! (It is designed to help kids learn balance and in theory they won’t need training wheels.)

Number 3 Birthday:

– Cinnamon chip pancake breakfast then outside for a quick ride

– Off to Tower Grove park for a Birthday Party. (One of Benjamin’s favorite places to go during the brutal summer heat)

– Meet up with a few friends for cupcakes and swimming in the wadding pool and fountains.

– Hot day, 100+, cupcakes melted.

– Dad home from work, pizza and more presents.

– Chocolate train cake.

– To bed. Such a great day.

When Benjamin went to be he said, “going to see friends and have a cake and open presents tomorrow for my birthday”. I guess he wanted to do it all over again.

Test ride around the living room.
