Ethan's 3rd Birthday Party.

On Sunday we celebrated Ethan's birthday with our family.

When I asked him what kind of party he wanted he told me Monster Trucks.
So Monster Trucks it was. 

I didn't do any big planning or go crazy with food or spend a ton of money on decorations.
I kept it simple.

The kids played in the sandbox, raced monster trucks and drew with chalk.


We ate lunch.


Opened presents.

 (yes, that is a big boy drum set. my neighbors are thrilled.)

And sang happy birthday.

But the main event was the pinata.
I'm almost certain none of the kids had hit a pinata before and they loved it.






Even my Uncle Jimbo got in on the action.
I think they were all on a sugar high for the rest of the day. At least Ethan was.

The kids had a blast and most importantly Ethan had one of the best days ever. 
That's what he told me. 
Happy 3 to my E!
