Happy 3rd Birthday Michael!

While it's not my nature to fork out money to someone to do what I could easily do, this summer I was ready to pay to have someone else take care of Michael's third birthday party.  We wanted to make sure it was extra special for him, knowing it would be so close to Miya's arrival, so we decided to bite the bullet and have The Little Gym take care of everything for us.

It was a good thing we did, as I came home from hospital just three days before his birthday.  We enjoyed a fabulous afternoon with family and friends and lots of cake and presents!  Michael had a blast!  And thanks to my mom who stayed at home with the baby and to what felt like light-speed surgery recovery, I was even able to be there to enjoy the special day with Michael.

Here are some fun pics from the event...

Michael loved Miss Andrea, his summer class teacher.

Fast and furious (and incredibly fun!)

Lots of running and jumping for all!
