It's true. We are low maintenance birthday people. No big parties and no fuss. I suppose it's fair to say we "observe" birthdays rather than "celebrate" them.
But somehow, this year, we managed to celebrate twice. Once when my parents were here for Mother's Day back in May. And again when we went to Jeff's parents' house for Father's Day this weekend.
I still can't believe he tolerated that hat!
Colt's cousin Will is having a birthday soon, too. So we had a joint party for the two birthday boys.
I don't think I got a photo of the two boys together, but here is Will with his Dad. Happy 12th birthday, Will!
Will wasn't feelin' the candles, so Colt pinch hit for him after he took care of his own.
Possibly my favorite pictures of the day (other than the Three Year Old Club gang sign photo above) are these next ones. I have no idea why people insist on taking photos like this. You know – the "ok, hold up your present so Mama can see." photos. As you can see, he humored me. But didn't even try to conceal his impatience.
But the last present was the kicker. He couldn't help but smile for this one!
Golf clubs! Legend has it Tiger Woods started playing when he was three, so we thought we'd see what happens — though we'd be happy with a #2 Golfer in the World who manages to stay out of the gossip headlines!
Another birthday in the books. Thanks to Ninny and Pop, and Aunt Sarah & Uncle Frank for helping us celebrate. It was a special day, indeed.
We rounded out our weekend at Ninny and Pop's with some playing outside (in short, sweaty bursts – it's HOT in central Arkansas!) and some bedtime stories with Ninny.
Happy birthday to Colt and Will! And Happy Father's Day from all three Hoodlums!
