Jack Turns 3

We had Jack's 3rd Birthday party Saturday at Treetop Family Adventure. It is a new family fun place that has just opened and it was great. If you live in Birmingham you have got to go.

There are tons of arcade games for the kids and adults. Jack had a blast bowling for the first time. There is also laser tag, a big treehouse for the kids to climb in, putt putt golf, water wars, golf carts, etc.

Since most of the kids were 1-4 we did the package that included the treehouse, putt putt, and arcade games. The kids loved playing putt putt. Jack was so proud that it was his birthday. As each person came in he gave them a hug and said "it's my birthday". I think this was the first year that he really got it.

His Parrain and Kayley were able to stop by to join in on the fun for a little while. Notice where they went. John and Brandon are dying for Jack to be the right age to hunt. Anytime they can get a gun or bow (toy, of course) in his hand they do. His Parrain gave him a toy bow and arrow set and Jack loves it.

After all the putt putt and treehouse fun, we headed to the party room for pizza, cake, and ice cream. It was a bit chaotic to say the least trying to round up a bunch of little ones, but it was worth it. They had a blast.

The Go Carts were not included in our package because the kids were too little to do it on their own, but the kid in Brandon, Nikki, and Nanny made us stay after to ride the go carts a couple of times. Jack wasn't real sure when he first got on and didn't understand why he couldn't drive. Once he got going Brandon said he loved it. He was smiling the whole time. Brandon said after a couple of laps he was yelling, "crash into Nanny and Nikki", "go faster".
When we got home Mimi, Nikki, and Nanny stayed over to watch Jack open his gifts and have a small photo shoot with the Birthday Boy.

He had a great birtday party and I can't believe that my little boy is 3. Thank you to everyone that came to his party and made it a very special day.
