March 19th (Saturday) Reed celebrated his 3rd birthday with a bunch of his friends. One of his BFFs is named Brooks and Brook's birthday is March 13th (the day before Reed's birthday). So, Jenn and I decided to do a double birthday party for our little boys. We decided we would invite the same people, so why not! Also, Reed and Brooks love trains a lot! To me, they are so similar it is funny. They are these mild-mannered boys (but, yes, they do throw fits) that love trains, cars, sticks, and almost anything else! They play fabulously together - it is just amazing. So, we figured a double birthday party would be fun.
Sadly, I did not take any pictures. I think my mom did, but I have not gotten the copies. So, hopefully that will be up and coming.
We had our party at the little playground in my apartment complex. At first it was super windy, but thankfully, it ended up being a beautiful day and party. We sang train songs, made a human train, colored pictures, did some races, ate food, played on the playground, and opened presents! It was a fun time had by all.
Reed's preschool friends plus a few others from church were in attendance. Grandma and Grandpa Rowberry and Uncle Ryan, Aunt Barbara, and Lillie were there as well! Overall, a great morning!
Have I mentioned that the little preschool kids are just so cute together? Well, they are. They each get so excited to see each other. They will often give each other hugs and just go play. They talk about each other (in good ways) when the others are not there, saying things like, "When do I get to see my friends? When do I get to see _________ (name)?" I love it! Reed has really loved his preschool and has made some great friends :)
On Reed's 21st week of preschool he learned all about bunnies. He is already in love with the "Sleeping Bunnies" song, so he did awesome. He was also at Taryn's house - those 2 are inseparable when together. Needless to say, preschool was great! Going home not so great. But, we did make it home and then he got to take his weekly preschool picture.
