Hailey Turns 3

We've been celebrating Hailey since Sunday even though she just turned 3 today! It started with the delivery of a giant number "3" adorned with red balloons for our front lawn on Sunday morning. That afternoon kicked off Hailey's party with all of her favorite foods including popcorn, soft pretzels, fried chicken (close enough to chicken nuggets!) and chocolate milk!

She enjoyed jumping in the inflatable bounce house (last year she was a bit hesitant); requested that the balloon artist make her a lion (her favorite animal); loved the pinata (she got to pull the last string that let out all the candy); and didn't cry when everyone sang happy birthday to her this year (although she did chastise me two days later for helping her blow out her candle. Why she waited two days before mentioning this was beyond me as I didn't even think she noticed!).

She was happy to open all of her presents (which were almost all toys this year). It was a great mix of all of her favorites - Peppa Pig, Mickey Mouse, Paw Patrol, Lion Guard and Secret Life of Pets (the theme for her party). And, she loved her big cousin giving her tattoos (Secret Life of Pets of course!).

Today (her actual birthday), we opened presents and went to the toy store to buy more toys. Tom came home early before he and Austen had to leave early for football practice so Hailey got to pick her favorite meal for dinner (a Happy Meal!) with chocolate milk of course! More presents, more cake and more blowing out a candle capped off the evening.

Hailey had a great few days of celebrating three but I still don't know who was more excited for the party and to play with all the presents - Austen or Peyton?!
