We celebrated Colin's 3rd birthday while we were down in Orlando! I was very hesitant to do that because I wanted to make sure he felt special on "his" day. Plus I wanted to make sure that Garet would be able to spend his birthday with him. Lucky for us, Garet was able to come the weekend, therefore enjoy Colin's birthday festivities! AND my family was awesome and truly made him feel special!
It was raining the afternoon we planned on having cake for him. So, instead of having the party at the pool, we packed into Mary and Joe's condo (my aunt and uncle) and it was perfect!
Here is the birthday boy walking into his party =)
After a little bit of warming up (he had just gotten up from his nap) it was time to sing! He totally didn't get it at first.
Which Garet gave him.
Which poor Colin paid for later.
Which I had to deal with.
His second piece of cake was eaten with his hands. I thought it was funny to see Colin eating his cake versus Morgan eating her cake:
One of Colin's gifts was this awesome hat!
We managed to get almost all the girl cousins (and daughters) in the family!
This was NOT a hit.
"What is this mess?" "These are in my way" "I don't like them"
So, that was not a hit. But the birthday donuts were!
I mentioned in my last post the place where my cousins stayed, Give Kids the World. Well we went by there to meet some characters!
Here is my aunt and uncle and cousins:
Colin met the chipmunks while standing in line:
And then... we met MICKEY!
We were also able to meet Goofy!
Here is Colin getting an autograph:
After that, Colin cooled off in the water. Don't look too close, we forgot a bathing suit, so he is in his undies!
We are so thankful for our sweet boy! We are so proud and blessed by him!
Garet flew back and left us to have a few more days of fun! I will post about that next!
