1: The summer began with preparations for Jordan's birthday bash for turning THREE! What a BIG BOY! | We had a smiley faced theme party. Treats were prepped and ready a few days before. (Take a good look at the cupcakes in the "carousel" because they ended up in the TX Tumblers parking lot! Note to all-additional support is needed to keep the lid on!) | But before we partied for Jordan we got to spend some time with Princesses Lilly and Lexi who share the same birth date! So, on June 4th we partied ALL day! Our morning began in PINK....

While we waited the kids got warmed up by running around the tables and taking pictures of each other! | "CHEEEEEZE" | Mommy & Daddy | My finger Brielle | My finger & Brielle | Smiling pretty! | My brother, Jontan | Uncle Anthony, Jay, and Jontan | Aunt "Effie" | My Daddy
