Carter turns 3!

We can't believe that Carter James is three already! Time flies! He is such a blessing to our lives...always full of character and has hilarious facial expressions. He keeps us busy and of course is challenging at times but such a cuddle bug too and we wouldn't trade him for the world! Love you buddy! He wanted a John Deere birthday party so daddy and him showed up at our house riding this on Saturday. Spoiled little dude! He was in his glory! Nice to have connections with farmers. :) The boys going for a ride.
Saturday night we had his birthday party with my family; complete with everything John Deere!
My mom's birthday was yesterday so I decorated the other side of the cake for her since we were celebrating both birthdays. Carter got a lot of new 'wheels' for this birthday. Our neighbor Sydney came over to give him a new scooter. She has a matching pink one. :)

He got a big wheel from Grandpa and Grandma.And a bike from mom and dad. He'll be busy outside this summer! He also got new games, squirt guns, puzzles, trucks, fun to have new stuff to play with!

Blowing out candles with Grandma Ann (it's too hard to say Grandma Mary Ann). :) Doing one of his new puzzles with Grandpa Jim. Family pic. Trey, Carter and cousin Kasen...who also came wearing green. :) These boys are going to be trouble some day!

Sunday to Monday we headed to the Double JJ resort to the waterpark for Carter's birthday. We had a great room and it was nice b/c it was not busy. The boys had a blast and were definitely water rats.

Carter must have thought this slide was a choo-choo train b/c he would make the sound as he slid down it, hence the hands by the face. He loved every bit of the park even though he couldn't do the big slides yet. Today the indoor/outdoor hot springs wasn't too hot for the kiddos so he swam like a fish in it. Playing in the water with daddy.

Our happy water baby!
The resort also had fun stuff upstairs for the kids...crafts, ice-cream, etc. so we kept busy and always had good bribes to get Carter out of the water. :) It was a lot of fun and will be even more fun as the kiddos get older.
