Last week we celebrated Gretchen’s third birthday. Timehop likes to remind me every day how tiny she was this time three years ago! Also how hot it is, summer 2012 was brutal. This summer is a different kind of brutal with all the rain.
As much as I love hosting parties we decided not to do a big party this year and took Gretchen to Omaha for a weekend of fun back in May. We did have a Daniel Tiger birthday party with family, including 5 of her cousins that were in town at the time. She was SO excited for her Daniel Tiger party and everywhere I took her on her birthday she asked if it was her party (sorry kid, party is not at Scheels). My friend Renata designed the custom Daniel Tiger decor. Check out her shop on etsy!
I ran out of time to make the Texas sheet cake I’d planned on so I picked up this chocolate cake from 3 Women and an Oven and it was delicious!
Discussing the big plans they have now that they are both 3 years old.

needed help blowing out her candles this year, although she did try!
the balloons we picked up at the store were a huge hit, as was the wrench we tied them to in order to keep them from floating away!
