Three Years Old!

Grace turned three last week!

She is holding up a star shaped watermelon piece that she had the pleasure of eating at Alisha and Judd's house for the Fourth of July.

Our grown up girl.  (Looking good, Gini.)

We started the day with present opening at 7:01 am.  She received some wonderful things, including this doctor set from Aunt Sam.  She likes to give Clara shots.  She also received some glow in the dark race car tracks that are flexible in many different ways.  She loves her vehicles!

Next we went to the Union Station Museum.  Trains!  This was Grace's first time and she had a blast, outside of the talking bronze statues everywhere that she found off putting.

We had lunch next to the train cars and Grace enjoyed walking around on them.

Even the elevator was a thrill!

There was an science exhibit there where you could design your own laser show.  Grace and Clara had a great time chasing them around.  The rest of that exhibit was geared for an older audience but they had fun with it anyway!

Grace was VERY clear that she wanted cake with sprinkles.  The details other than that were left to me.  I ambitiously decided on a 6 layer cake with caramel filling, and I just BARELY finished it before bedtime.  Here she is putting her sprinkles on, looking very tired after an eventful day.

Blowing out the candles!


  1. She is really growing up! Happy Birthday, Grace!

  2. Looks like it was a perfect day! (Love Grace's patriotic 4th dress! cute!)
