Jack's Monkey Tractor Party

This past Saturday, we celebrated Jack's 3rd birthday with a very fitting, "monkey tractor" party at our house. Jack is one of the youngest of his friends, so he has been to nearly all of his friend's parties this past year. He has patiently waited for his big day and has talked about his party and has been planning his party for literally months now. He told us he wanted a "monkey tractor" party about three months ago. He didn't deviate from his plan, so a monkey tractor party is was! I wasn't sure if I could pull it off, but when everything was said and done, I think it was the cutest little theme and was totally fitting for our little Jack.

The invitation...

And let me start by saying that sweet Amy at Pink Clover Designs is the BEST! She literally set the entire tone of the party with her super cute invitation that she designed just for Jack. She also designed all the cute labels, stickers and thank you notes for the party. I urge you to contact her if you are ever in need of invitations, stickers or note cards. She is amazingly talented and so easy and affordable to work with!!!

The kids loved Jack's train table!

Next I must give a huge shout out and thank you to Joey and Kami for bringing his tractor over and putting it in the front yard. This was a big deal for Jack! He was so excited when he saw them bringing it Saturday morning. You guys are the best!!

Happy Birthday, Jack!

It is so hard to believe that our little Jack is turning three today! Where does time go? It seems like only yesterday he was a little baby. Jack is the sweetest little guy and we love him so very much. His birthday party is today, and I will try and post pictures soon. His party this year was a BIG deal to him, so I did exactly what he wanted and have tried to make it extra special for him. Be on the lookout for the "monkey tractor party" pictures....HA!

Happy 3rd Birthday, Jacker!

Beach Trip: Part Three

Georgia and Jack were super excited that they had built-in bunk beds! Poor Daniel had to sleep in the pack-n-play (which he did great in).

Posing on the ocean buggy, which they really wanted to rent and ride. We quickly nipped that idea!

They were excited to take their beach buckets out to try and find some treasures.

There was a great public park/shopping area close to our condo. They kept begging to get in the fountain. Georgia and Daniel LOVED it! There are no pictures of Jack because all he did was run in circles around the perimeter of the fountain. Silly boy!

On our way to and from the beach, we traveled through Butler, Georgia. So, we had to stop and get a picture of Georgia Butler in Butler, Georgia!

We also stopped for a few hours in Savannah on the way home. It was beautiful, and hopefully we can go back soon to stay longer.
