Lincoln had a birthday on the 1st. Happy 3rd birthday, Lincoln! Since Doug had to work all day, and I had to work at night, that left only one time on his birthday to open presents: before Doug went to work in the morning. Hence the reason they're still in pajamas.
Since we got him that awesome blue Jeep for his present (and he doesn't really have any "friends" yet,) he didn't have a real party. But he kept saying he wanted a monster truck party. This was funny since Jack wanted the exact same kind of birthday party for his 3rd birthday. Here's my attempt at a monster truck cake.
I found some amazing monster truck birthday decorations at the dollar store. I got these hats, and every single one of them had a rubber band that snapped off as soon as you tried putting them on. Lame!
Jack's trying to balance his to stay on.
We had his cake on Sunday evening.
The other part was this Star Wars kit. The kit was way more for Jack's enjoyment than for Doug's. We're both not too big of fans, but Jack loves Darth Vader.
We had the missionaries over for dinner a week or two ago, and I made my mom's super yummy mud pie. They loved it, and so did the boys. Here they are finishing it off.
The boys both had some semi-private swim lessons this month, thanks to Groupon. They are both doing SO much better this time around! I'm signing them up with the city for the next month. Here's Lincoln in the water, and Jack is in the class next to Lincoln. That's him sitting on the ledge.
