A Birthday Party for Cousin Jack

This morning, I went to Jack's 3rd birthday party! Uncle Jon and Aunt Jenn held it at Memorial Park in La Canada. The weather was not too shabby, considering we had a week of rain and overcast skies. Jack and I had our traditional hug to start things off. I love my cousin!
Then we shared this tire swing...
And went on the big swings, too.
We were swinging fools!
After the swings, we checked out the awesome play equipment.
We cruised in the tunnel.
Whoa, extreme close up on Jack!
And were our usual maniac selves!
I also had fun on this contraption with Daddy.
And went on the various slides about 50 times.
What a rush, huh?!
The only way you could pry me off the play equipment was with the promise of cake! Wow, that is some cake, Jack!
Come on, people! Get that sucker cut already!
Great-Grammy had to hold my hand while I waited.
Hey, is that Emily Rose? She slid right in next to the birthday boy when no one was looking...
And scored herself an early slice. Smart girl! I'll have to remember that at the next party.
Success! And boy was it ever good cake! I ate my cake and Grammy's cake, too. Mommy cut me off after that.
Gotta love cake! I think I'm all fueled up and ready to play again!
Emily and I had a quick drink together before getting back out there.
We rode the slides...a lot!
And found just about all the cute little bronze men we could find all over the play yard. We have no idea what they were for but we had fun searching for them and tickling their bellies.
Jack and I just love our sweet friend Emily! We're so glad she lives close enough for us to visit with her often (and of course her Mommy and Daddy, too).
And as promised, we tried our best to recapture the wagon photo from our first visit last September. Meg (that's Emily's Mimi), this is for you. Only trouble is getting three toddlers to sit still and to all be looking at the camera at the same time.
This one is a little better...
Oh, boy. Well, we tried. Maybe one of the "paparazzi" has a better photo to share with Emily's Mimi.
Well there you have it. A super fun morning with friends and family in honor of my big cousin, Jack. Happy 3rd birthday, Jackie Boy! We love you!

What GREAT pictures you have!! So much lovin' and fun before we even got there. You nailed it on the head, Noah... that Emily had her eye on that spot and did just slide right in scoring a BIG piece of cake. Next time, if you stick with her, you won't have to have two pieces! OR, you could have a big piece first and still have your Grammy's leftovers! SCORE! So good to see you and celebrate Jack!

I love all the photos. Gave us a glimpse into what was going on while we were busy visiting with the other parents!

OMG! What a thrill! As soon as I saw the picture of that wagon in Jack's blog I was HOPING someone remembered to get a shot of the 3 of them in it! THANK YOU!!! Great pictures of the whole party, love the one in the tunnel!
