Reid's Birthday Fun!

Reid slept in on his birthday.  I asked him what he wanted to do for lunch and I asked if he wanted to go to Chick-fil-a, go get grilled cheese, or go to Chuck E Cheese.  He said he wanted to eat grilled cheese...but then when we went to get Lilly up he said, "Lilly we are going to Chuck E Cheese!!!"  So after we went to bible study we headed to Chuck E Cheese. 
 He was excited!!  He also told everybody that would listen that it was his birthday. 
 And so was this girl!!  I had to explain how it was Reid's special day and he got to choose where we went...she is not so keen on this.  Ha!
Our friends "Miss Laura", Addi, and Sam came to help us celebrate, too!  So thankful for sweet friends!
 Reid was drawn to anything he could drive. 
 Lilly was token crazy!!  She would give Addi a handful of tokens and say, "Here!  Have as many as you need!!"  Love her generous spirit! 
 Reid put all of his tokens in all by himself.  My big 3 year old.  Sigh. 
 For the last week anytime someone asked Reid how old he was going to be he would answer, "Two!" And when I tried to tell him he was going to be three he would cry and say, "No!  I'm 2!"  Well I guess it was the magic day because he will now say that he is three!  I was with him, though, because I wasn't really ready for him to turn 3 either. 
 All of the kids love this horse ride.
 And we did a little bit of skee-ball. 

 Reid had so much fun!!

 Lilly was a very serious driver--her daddy will be proud!
 Sam--Reid's best buddy. 
 Here they were talking.  Reid said, "Sam are you alright?"  Sam replied, "Yep!"

Okay so Lilly put the tokens in this ride by herself--I just looked over and they were riding this ride--they watch a video of a jet-ski and the chairs move.  Kind of like a simulator, maybe??  Anyway, their facial expressions are hilarious! 

They seemed to have fun but they only rode it once.  ( ; 
 This is what the girls did when I asked to take their picture.  Ha!
Lilly called several people on the Chuck E phone and she would talk, "Ummmm yes...we are at Chuck E Cheese.  Uh-huh."
 Okay so at CEC there is a fake Chuck E that kind of dances on stage and then every once in a while the "real" Chuck E comes out.  When we first got there Reid kept yelling at the fake Chuck E, "Hey Chuck E Cheese--it's my birthday!!"  Finally, after about the 7th time, he turned around and blew out his breath and said, "Mooooommm, he is NOT answering me!!"  Needless to say he was excited when the real Chuck E Cheese came out and was excited that it was his birthday. He danced with CEC and was very thankful for the string of tickets he got from him.  He referred to the string of tickets as his rattlesnake. 
 This was actually Reid's favorite ride.  It was like the kid version of the simulator and he rode it at least 15 times. 
 Daddy came by to have lunch with us, too!  I love Reid's face in this picture. 
 Lilly rode this ride and once she figured it out it took her picture...
 she wouldn't get off of it.  Ha!  I love it!

 Sam and Reid. 
 Addi wanted in on the picture too. 
 When he woke up DeDe was here and Daddy was in town and he was super excited!  He wanted grilled cheese for dinner so we went to Hammontrees. 
 Reid got to pick out his own cake the day before and we had went to pick it up after CEC--he LOVED it and was so excited! 
 He was so funny when we sang Happy Birthday to him--he was singing along with us, "Happy birthday to me!"

 He is also an expert candle extinguisher!  (: 
 Me, the birthday boy, and DeDe
 We all had some yummy cake...
 and then he opened presents...
 and Lilly had to help! 
 Opening his present from Lilly. 
Funny story--we ran by the Dollar Store to pick up party hats and were going to let Lilly pick out a present for him.  I took him to get party hats and DeDe took Lilly to pick out a present...she ended up with a cart full of presents.  Haha! 
 The kids snuck back in the kitchen and attacked the cake.  We couldn't help but laugh.  It was his birthday, after all, so we just let them go at it. 
LOVE these two!  I think he had a pretty great day!  (:  Now for the next few days we have two 3 year-olds!!

Looks like he had a fantastic birthday. I am not surprised that Lightning McQueen was on top of his cake.
