Open house at Bubbaloo Farm. Kate and Kim check out the brand new calf. What a cute little guy.

A Sunday afternoon picnic on the neighbor's front lawn.

No pictures, please!

Pigeon party

Kate wanted a hot dog party for her birthday. And who can think of a hot dog party without thinking of this guy?

So we made it a pigeon party!

Kate helped make the cake...

and clean up, too.

Molly made a sign for the front door.
And many more for inside the house.
Then we all got the crayons out.
Party time!

Kate liked her new beach gear very much.
Accessories, too.

Checking Grandpa's phone.

Cake time.

Post-hot dog-party crash.

A birthday in pictures

Kate wanted to start the day by looking at videos of herself as a baby.

We gave her control over our morning activities. She wanted to go get candy. Then she changed her mind to donuts. So we went for a walk...

to Dunkin Donuts. There was a bit of a scene at the end but, hey, that's 3! We'll skip over some tantrums and ugliness ...

and end up here. She had a good nap and came down in a great mood dressed like this. Those are old tap shoes on her feet and bags full of who-knows-what.

It was a lovely sunny day so we opened up the sand box.

Finally Daddy came home from work. Time for presents!

Special delivery from VT!!!
We had just a few minutes to play outside. This is Kate with our next door neighbor. Now Kate's part of the scooter gang, too.

Instead of getting ready for bed at the usual time, we went to Molly's school for an ice cream social/open house.

Kate wanted her coat on backwards on the way home. Silly 3-year-old!
