Happy Birthday Nate Nate!

For Nathan’s 3 birthday he requested a barn cake like his Lego barn. He wanted animals and all, so I set to work, and here’s the finished product!

It was a hit! He loved it, and it was so cute to watch him pick at all the little animals. He giggled with delight as he ate each one. It made all the hand cramps worth it! Tee Hee Hee!
We started the day out with a birthday breakfast. Nathan requested orange pancakes, so we had pumpkin pancakes and he loved it. Who wouldn’t love chocolate chips for breakfast? Right??!

Next, we skyped with Grandparents while the kids opened their gifts.

Grandma and Grandpapa hat also gave Nathan a curious George space book and movie, which he loved. He was very thrilled since he is going to be Curious George for Halloween this year. Continuing with the space theme, they also gave him the neatest stomp rocket. I’ve heard it came with rave reviews from Ethan and Dallas! Hey, I wanted a chance to jump on the launch pad! 🙂

Knowing that Nathan was both a Legos and Cars fan,  Grandma and Grandpa Call gave Nathan a Cars Lego set he’s been dreweling over for months! Now, that’s one happy birthday boy!

Nathan decided that his activity of choice would be to ride the ferris wheel at American Village, so that’s just what we did. While we were there we broke down for a few 100 Yen rides. After all, it’s not your birthday everyday!

Kennedy’s almost too big for the merry-go-round! Sniffle sniffle!
We ended the trip to the park with a train ride for the kids…

Oh, and Dad hopped on to help get the train started and away he went!!! I know he really meant to do that!

With all that fun, we worked up an appetite for some food. Kennedy wanted to go to Macaroni Grill, but Nathan insisted that we go to Macaroni “Boy”. We did and got a good laugh out of it. Every time we slipped up, he would tell us, “No, not girl, I want to go to the Macaroni Boy!”

Nate was wiped out, so he crashed for a nap when we got home. After waking up from the nap, we had cake, ice cream, and more presents! FINALLY!!
