Happy Birthday Austin

I can't believe my baby is 3.We were lucky this year to have Austin's birthday fall on Labor day. Jeff had off work so we were able to spend the entire day together as a family. Last night I decorated the apartment with balloons and streamers. I also wrapped his presents and made him a cake.

This is how we found the birthday boy this morning.

I filled the hallway right outside his room with balloons.

Austin checking out his loot.

He didn't need to be asked to start unwrapping his presents.

We got him a train table off craigslist. It came with a ton of tracks and trains and stations and other accessories. It also came with Diesel 10 which is what Austin asked for. He was really happy when he opened it first.

I did some work for my friend in InDesign and she let me pick a print. It is so awesome. Austin was so excited about it. http://www.photosbysonja.net/

 We marked his height on his growth chart. He was excited that he was as tall as the pickel.
 Traditional pancake breakfast. His pancake had a number 3 on it.
A toy squirtgun from GG and Pap-Pap.

When Austin saw these lolly pop lips he said "ooooo a candy binki"

We also went Swimming. It is Austin's favorite thing to do. He loves the water. He would go swimming all day every day if we let him.

 Someone took a bit of icing off the side and ate it :)

 Look at those eyelashes!

 It was a wonderful day. We all had a great time.

Happy Birthday Austin! Brielle asks about Austin almost everyday. We have a puzzle of the US and she always points to Florida and says Austin lives so far away now. We miss you guys. Hope things are going well for you guys.
