Kai's Third Birthday Party

Wow, who knew a three year old birthday party could be so tiring?! I was hoping to play a bunch of games but Gary said we should just let the kids play and that ended up working best in the end. Maybe next year I can reminisce about the games we played as kids and get Kai to play them with his friends:) We had a ton of family and friends over for a few hours. We had lunch, cake, opened presents, and played. It is also Kai's cousin Theo's (T-bone) bday today so that is why he is blowing out a candle.

Kai wanted cars on his cupcakes so I just put them on the extra fondant I had so they didn't get covered in icing. I decided to decorate the cake with frosting instead of fondant and I think it turned out okay. If anyone needs to borrow a car cake pan, I've got one! Kai was super spoiled with tons of trucks, cars, diggers etc. I'd say my favourite is a Melissa & Doug's magnetic body systems. Soooo cool and very anatomically correct. Kai and I have had several interesting conversations about the boy and girl ones already:)
We did do one pinata type game. This one was just a `pull the ribbon' one. So, each kid pulled a ribbon and some how, the 2nd last ribbon was the one that released the door and let all the candy out. Good thing they didn't pull that ribbon first:) Ani was pretty pumped that it was her ribbon that did it. And, call me crazy cheap but the car is in perfect condition to use as an actual pinata next year:)

Thank you to everyone that came and celebrated the 3 years that Kai has been blessed with. We are so grateful to have you in our lives and we love seeing our big boy being so loved. I need a nap.
