Messy Mania!!!

Happy Birthday little love! Zach turns 3 today! He had a party last Friday! When asked what kind of cake he wanted...all he kept saying was a "BLUE" one! easy enough!
Zach painted the invites himself!
He also painted the sign (mommy wrote the words!)
all the kiddos had t-shirts with their names on them to keep their clothes clean!
First we "personalized" the shirts a bit
then we played with "magic mud" ooey gooey fun!

Lily bug chillin
and probably the favorite activity...
was chucking water balloons....

on dad!

Zach had a WONDERFUL time and hasn't stopped talking about his birthday! He thinks EVERY day is his birthday because he continues to get cards and prezzies in the mail! Today (on his actual birthday) we had a doctor appointment. I felt really bad about the timing...but he felt really lucky! He kept telling the nurse that he wanted to get a shot (WHAT?) She looked a little surprised and I just shrugged my shoulders! I love this boy!
