#73. Our Two Turned Three!

It's crazy to think we are 1/6 of the way (yep, I'm a math teacher) to kicking them out of the house, but we recently celebrated the 3rd birthday of Clare & Luke!

1+2 = 3...Happy Birthday!!

Just look at how far they have come...three amazing years of growth!

On their actual birthday, July 19, we were lucky to welcome Luke & Clare's great uncle and aunt into our home from California.

We enjoyed a nice dinner, but pretty sure the thing the twins remember most are the cupcakes!

Happy 3, you 2!

Yummy, yummy!!

The twins enjoyed a special reading of their new book from great Aunt Tricia

Showing off their new 'Peppa' and 'Mickey' slippers

The weekend after their birthday, the twins had a 'Dr. Seuss' themed 3rd birthday party attended by family and friends.

Daddy and Papa spent a night getting 'crafty' in preparation

Dr. Seuss hats were donned by the young...

...and the old to get in the 'Seuss spirit'!

The twins enjoyed hanging out with all kinds of people (nice creepy photobomb, Papa)

Clare enjoyed a drink of the Yink's pink ink...I think!

The cakes were Seuss-themed as well

Did someone say cake?!?  Can't wait to dig in!!  (Neither can cousin Ben in the back as well)

Not sure a lot of cake was eaten, but the icing sure was a hit!

So were the lollipops, too!

The twins allowed a quick family photo and then... was time for presents!  The twins started opening their gifts on the couch...

...then progressed to the floor...

...and later spilled into a second day (notice the wardrobe change)!

Whether it was a box filled with clothes, came with a card...

...created a funny disguise...

...was wrapped in a package almost their size...

...or was a present designed to be on wheels...

...these two loved all their gifts and the kind and generous people that brought/sent/spoiled them!

We sure are messin' up a lot, but we must be doing something right because we are... 

...proud to be dads of these two 3-year olds!!
