We celebrated the birthday festivities at Mount Olympus in Wisconsin Dells.
Road trip to the Dells!
LB taking a turn on the giant swings.
That face totally captures how Hubby feels about spinning in circles :)
SP was big enough to ride some of the rides by herself this year!
Vacations require selfies :)
I drew the short straw for the teacup-type ride.
I got to vacation wth these cool people!
At the end of our first day.
They were pretty in love with the bunk beds. Epic hotel room - 4 beds (bunk bed and 2 queen sized beds) for less than $200/night including park admission.
Our side of the room :)
Their beds immediately became a fort.
LB was tall enough to drive the big go karts this year! Six more years until driving is an every day deal :)
This one is still a ride-along.
We're a little worried about her driving.
After a drive - she was pretty happy with herself.
Gave Hubby his Father's Day present early so they could sport them around the park.
I told her we were going to ride - this was her reaction.
Mandatory trip to Paul Bunyan's.
She ate a TON!
Bagels and cream cheese are her very favorite - especially with "coffee" aka hot chocolate.
Early morning selfies.
The first of a long line of embarrassing pre-teen moments.
Really, the most important thing was having some birthday caffeine - mocha for the win.
This was LB's last year being short enough for this ride :)
This was a giant trolley that - shockingly - SP was short enough to ride herself. Luckily LB went with.
Her legs were worn out - and Hubby was complimented on this shirt.
Out for my birthday dinner.
Which was free-ninety-free thanks to LB telling the cashier it was my bday. We made sure to tell her how awesome that was :)
Last picture of my 2 y/o!
With the request to, "take a picture of my foot, Mom!"
After she woke to the birthday song, it was present time!
Flying off to breakfast.
Milk is her favorite food.
It was a great third birthday - and good news! That magic tantrum switch clicked on right on schedule. My new hashtag for her shots is #threeisathriller - because surviving this year will be a thrill!
Three is such a mash up of tantrums of independence and awesome milestones. It's such a ride of highs and lows, it's sure to be a trip!
