Gavin's 3rd birthday party

I cannot believe my baby is 3 years old...almost.  I have one more day!  We celebrated his birthday this Saturday at home with a couple of close friends and our family.  The theme was a rocket ship birthday party!  Gavin was asleep when everyone got here, so Nana and GiGi went to wake him up.  He was pleasantly surprised to see them when he first woke up.  He got dressed and came downstairs to find yet more people here!  He loved seeing everyone.

 This is his cupcake "cake"...modeled after his invitations.

The super cool rocket ship that Daddy built!  Huge hit! (emphasis on huge;)

 After he said "hello" to everyone, he went outside with Daddy to see his birthday surprise.  A bounce house!  I knew he would like it, but I had no idea he would love it so much!  He climbed in, bounced three or four times and went down the slide and ran back to do it all over again!  He loved having his friend and schoolmate in there with him...Mason Mac.  He wanted to be outside the majority of the time, with the exception of singing happy birthday and opening presents. When it was time to sing "Happy Birthday", he walked into the room and said, "Alright,'s time to sing 'Happy Birthday' to me" He soaked it all in and even joined the singing with "Happy Birthday to meeee" He blew out his candles and proceeded to pick the cupcakes everybody should have.  NaNa was a yellow cupcake, Paw Paw a white and so on.  He was so cute.  He was equally excited about opening presents! 

 Loving everyone singing to him!

 "Yes, this one is yours, Paw Paw."

 One of Gavin's gifts was a shaving kit.  He LOVED it...they grow up so fast.
Happy Birthday, Gavin.  You are such a special little boy.  You are so smart, handsome, sweet, well mannered and well behaved.  The past 3 years have been such an unspeakable joy!  You make me so proud and so happy.  I never could have dreamed you any better than you are.  I love you so much and look forward to every experience with you!
