best day ever...







i'm sure you've been worried about me all week...and i thank you for your concern. we kicked off the week with ben's 3rd birthday and i crashed with an ear infection and am recovering slowly. i don't mean to sound like a whiner...but wow, it was bad.

back to ben...ahhh, to be 3 again. his birthday wishes included:

DONUTS (can't blame him)
BOUNCY BALLS (the people at Old Navy thought we were nuts...we walked in with an empty bucket and $4 in quarters...ben thought it was HYSTERICAL!)
SWIMMING
PIZZA (at chuck e cheese of course!)

we threw in a big balloon of his hero 'Pablo' from the Backyardigans and ta-daah. perfect day.

we just finished off his birthday cake yesterday and he was running down the hall yelling "it gone...gone, we neeeeed cookie cake with Pablo on it."

i'm so proud.

Hey, I'd like to have cookie cake with Pablo on it, too!

(is it just me, or are the Backyardigans incredibly entertaining... for a children's show?)

ugh... I need a life.
