Liam turns 3 so we partied all weekend long!

Since Liam’s birthday was on a Saturday we spent the whole weekend celebrating him and we all had a blast!

FRIDAY
After work we had a quick dinner and went to the fire hall to cash in the free fire truck ride Joe’s dad won at a raffle. Erin, Joel, Kameryn and Luke came along with “fire fighter Frank” and “teacher Pam” or as Liam calls her “school Pam.”

It was a fun, long, ride and Liam did not stop smiling the whole time.

After the ride it was home for wind-down time and bed.

SATURDAY
Happy Birthday Liam! We put balloons in his room while he was sleeping and he woke up in the morning saying “I have to pee. There’s something in here! What are those?” When I went in he discovered they were balloons and when I told him it was his birthday he said “Right now???” It was so cute.

We let him open his birthday presents in the morning and he loved them all.

Joe’s dad stopped over to tell Liam happy birthday before he took off for a hunt in Utah.

Then we were off to the Minnesota Zoo which is the activity Liam chose to do for his birthday.

The weather was perfect. We walked a total of 4 miles and saw all kinds of different animals. We all had a great time.

Then we took the kids on the Carousel. Liam chose the bear as the animal he wanted to ride.

We had lunch at the zoo (definitely packing a lunch next time) and then went to look at some of the indoor exhibits.

For a nice day weekend day it wasn’t all that busy so it was just the perfect way to spend Liam’s birthday.

When we got home it was nap time and I quick threw together a birthday cake for Liam.

After he woke up from nap we decided to do cake. He was so happy when we were singing to him.

We spent some time outside and inside for the rest of the day. Liam and Owen both took a short nap so they both just wanted to lounge.

My parent’s stop by for a quick visit to tell Liam happy birthday. He showed them all his new toys.

Liam chose macaroni and cheese and hot dogs for his birthday dinner. After dinner we had movie time and then bed time. We put the boys in the matching pajamas that Marley (our dog) got for their birthdays (early gift to Owen).

SUNDAY
WE slept in a little bit and then had a relaxing morning. Joe and Liam ran a few errands and I tried to clean up the house a little bit.

Liam got an awesome gift from our friends in Oregon Tyler, Chelby, DJ, and Alena. Our little cowboy! So cute!

The morning was quiet. At nap time I got cupcakes ready and supplies packed up for the birthday party.

Then after nap my bestie Annie stopped by to wish Liam a happy birthday and give him a fun gift! He was practicing his independence and wouldn’t take a picture with her.

We played outside for a little bit and then we were off to the Paw Patrol birthday party! For the second year in a row we had Liam’s party at Sawmill Pizza and Brew shed. It is the perfect spot for kids to run free and eat pizza!

I got some Paw Patrol masks for the party. Liam was so excited to wear them. So funny!

We started the party with some pizza and then had cupcakes.

Liam again was thrilled when everyone sang him Happy Birthday.

We did presents shortly after that. Liam giggle at every card and every presents. He told everyone thank you and gave big hugs. He loved all of it.

Then it was play time! The kids all ran around outside and had a blast.

We got a group picture with all Liam’s cousins (who are also his best friends).

Liam wanted his friend Keaton to come too but he was a little shy so we took a pictures of the boys and their dads.

We also took some family pictures and Liam smiled in every picture with no questions asked. So sweet.

We got home and he wanted to wear his new pajamas and play with all his new toys. We let him play for a little bit before it was time for him to go to bed.

We watched the Packer game (me some, Joe all) and then went to bed.

We had the best weekend celebrating Liam! He has blessed our lives more than he will ever know!
