Lots of friends, fun, running and playing!!!

It is a cool construction theme cake! 
with a digger and a dump truck on top!
can you guess who used the digger as a fork?

running through garden with tunnels
After fueling up on cake it was back to playing with some of his cool new toys, 
like these tunnels that connect to a matching tent!
Oops, what flowers? Don't worry mommy they will pop back up.

It turned out to be a beautiful day,  with plenty of time for fun, 
food and playtime in between the rain drops. 
Lots of good friends and family came to celebrate from near and far!
Memaw and Buppa had a 6 and 1/2 hour drive, Great Aunty Mike, Great Uncle Herb and Great Aunty Mimi had a 4 hour drive. The from the farthest flew in Uncle Neil and Aunt Julie, all the way from California! 
It was the first time we were all together in over 4 years!

Sam kept us all running during our visit. 
Turning 3 is busy stuff!

Big brother Collin is healing nicely from the broken femur he received from Sam about 10 weeks ago ago. Collin is standing on his own, scooting on his butt, crab crawling and starting to walk!  His walk reminds me of one of the dancers in the music video "Thriller", but is making good progress.(yea)

So now you know why I have been kind of quiet here, 
I have been soaking up all the love, hugs and fun times with my family! 

Catching up with lots of hugs, celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and "Baby" news!

    Sounds as if you had the perfect weekend. So happy to hear things with Collin are progressing well. It has to be hard to keep a 10 y/o less active. Also sounds as if his younger brother has not slowed down any.

    Our plans this week are to keep hydrated! It is Hot Hot Hot!

  36. Looks like a great celebration! Happy birthday! And great for the good progress on healing. You have been busy.

  37. I love the name Sam! It's simple and a fun name!

    My youngest son just turned 3. They are active! Along with turning 3, he got a little attitude. He punches my arm when I give his older brother a time-out. Then he gets put in time-out too!

    I'm glad Collin is up and sort of walking! You should play the song "Thriller" and have him walk to it. Video tape it, and put it on your blog. ;)

  38. Glad to see he's recovering! I love that you likened him to a Thrillers dancer.

  39. Happy Birthday Sam, that looks like so much fun! Glad Collin is healing. Happy Wordless Wednesday!

  40. Happy Birthday and Sto Lat (May he live 100 years)!

    Sending wishes that Collin is fully recovered and happy!

  41. I'm sorry I did my blog wrong. It has words. I will do better next week. I've been away for a while. Doylene

  42. Linking up for wordless Wednesday
