We had a BLAST at the boys 3rd birthday party. I can easily say that this party was just as interactive for the adults as it was for the kiddos. We started off the morning with the boys sleeping in until 8:45am. That was actually perfect because the inflatable slides and bounce/obstacle course was to be delivered at 8:30am. So, by the time they woke up and got dressed all they needed to hear me tell them was "Your slides are here!!" and they were out the door in a flash. I had to practically force them to eat a pop tart and milk in the midst of some bouncing/sliding mayhem. They had to explore every inch of those slides and I *might* have had to try them out too before getting everything else in it's place.
We were lucky and got the boys to stand still long enough to snap a quick family pic before all of our friends came. The expression on Stockton's face is priceless. He pulls a million different faces in a day and this is one of his favorites lately. That kid is just precious...actually they both are, I can't help but adore everything about them.
Their Nana brought them some doctor kits for their birthday before the party. They were both so excited to get dressed up and give "check ups". Maybe one day they will be a doctor like their daddy!

Once again, the party didn't have a theme. I'm just not a theme kinda girl...sometimes I wish that I were interested in crafting or planning. (If I ever get the itch to attempt that all I have to do is think about last years cupcake icing disaster. Thank goodness for the Courtyard Bistro in Fort Gibson, their cupcakes were amazing!) What I want my kids to take away from these milestones is not the decorations or goody bags, but the memories of great times with friends and family. I am pretty sure the memories we made will last quite a while!

Once our friends started to arrive it was time to slide, bounce, play on the playground ect. Pretty much a big free for all. Not to mention the weather was absolutely perfect. No wind, warm but not to hot...just perfect.
