So this is about Birthday Monday (or his "real" birthday).
Even though it seemed like the entire month of August was dedicated to Grant and his birthday, I really wanted Monday to be special. Especially since he wasn't spending the day with us (but, as always, I know he had fun at school). So while he was sleeping I blew up some balloons and put them all over his bedroom floor. He immediately smiled when he opened his eyes and saw them all. Then he got up and went crazy kicking them and having fun.

|Settling down for his birthday dinner|
|A real wooden bat (with his name on it)|
|New Lightning McQueen|
|A kids camera!|
|Dusty from the movie Planes (still working on getting him to see that)|
|A new book - "Press Here" (he loves it)|
|Chutes & Ladders superhero themed! Now we're working|
on the whole board game concept with him.
|Birthday popsicle! (The candle was on a toothpick, it worked out well)|
After dessert, it was baseball in the living room with Gramma and Grandpa (and the non-wooden bat) until bath time.
Grant was all smiles and clearly had a great birthday :)
Also, this was the longest 3rd birthday ever. On at least 4, possibly 5, separate occasions (including my sister-in-law's wedding) Grant got birthday presents from people that couldn't attend the party. I wonder what he must think about birthdays...spoiled!
