I think Harry had a great time turning 3! Friday Harry and I picked up a few cupcakes from Deerfield's and just hung around until Ant got home from work. When he got home, Harry was more than game for opening presents.
The main present we got Harry was this city rug to play on. It's huge and a lot of fun! The little Hot Wheels cars fit perfectly with it.
After presents we went to the Rainforest Cafe for dinner. Every time we go to the mall Harry likes to stop and look at the alligator and other animals outside the restaurant. I thought it would be a lot of fun for him for a special birthday dinner.
We sat right across from the gorillas and Harry had a blast watching them "wake up." We also sat next to the rain and he thought it was hilarious when he got splashed with water.
After we finished our yummy food, we drove back home for some birthday cupcakes.
He blew out all 3 candles with no help.
The only thing Harry wanted for his birthday was a Thomas the Tank Engine cake. We ordered it from the Target bakery and took it over to my dad's on Saturday for a little party.
Didn't it turn out nice?!? I was so impressed with the bakery. Apparently the Thomas design had been discontinued at the beginning of the month. When we went to order it Harry picked a Sesame Street design instead. But, they called us later that day to say they had found one last Thomas set. How nice of them! So, in the end he got the cake he really wanted.
We ordered marble cake with butter cream frosting. It tasted SO GOOD. SOOOOO GOOD. Way better than Jewel cakes, IMO. All my store bought cakes are coming from Target from now on, ha!
We're all either getting over being sick or are sick so we didn't do much else, but, all in all it was a great weekend. Harry's been wanting to go bowling so we're gonna try and do that soon. Ant's working overnights this week and we're planning to go one morning after he gets home.
