Jaden turned three on January 28. Or as he would say... "I am FREE!" (That's more of what it sounds like coming from his mouth). ;) We started the celebration on his actual birthday - that Friday - by going out to eat at the O.P. with family. The four of us - my mom and Dad - Cody's parents - and Cassi and Ella. Then everyone came back to our house and watched as we surprised Jaden with his birthday present from us - his very own Thomas the Train table! We found it on clearance atToys R Us (because they are normally very pricey) -- and my parents split the cost with us. Then Cody and I also bought him some more track to enlarge the collection he'd already received at Christmas. He was pretty excited!
The next morning - Saturday morning - he had his first Kindergym glass up at UNI. This was another "present" from us.
Then that afternoon we celebrated with a pool party at the Wingate Hotel! It was funny to be swimming in their indoor pool while watching the snow storm begin to rage outside! Everyone had a very good time, and a lot of people told me we should just plan the same exact party for his next birthday! We invited family and some of his absolute best buddies from his previous daycare.
I have more pictures but haven't gotten them all uploaded yet to be able to put them in here. Maybe the next entry? I'll work on it. ;)
Happy birthday Jaden!
