Sweet Pea Turns 3!

June 6th was SP's 3rd(!) birthday. 

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!

On my birthday, we wore coordinating shirts (my bday is June 5). 

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. 

And pancakes. 

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!


  1. Love the matching shirt shots of you and Sweet Pea! You two are adorable!!!

  2. Happy belated to Sweet Pea!! I am only 2 weeks into a 3 year old but it sure is keeping me on my toes. Looks like a wonderful birthday weekend for both of you!!

  3. Ok that hotel room ROCKS! I'm so jealous. :)
