My baby turns THREE!

         Oh boy! I can't seem to grasp the idea that my BABY has turned three years old. :( The past few years have just flown by and he's changed so much. It seems to be going even faster with Miss Olivia. We celebrated Connor's birthday this past Saturday. We just had a small BBQ at the house with some friends. No specific
theme, water and Mickey Mouse I guess. Imagine 10 kids running around in bathing suits with squirt guns and you've got our weekend. :) We grilled hot dogs and enjoyed the sunny day.

(On the right you see Connor and his best friend Alex having a showdown!)

The party was almost perfect... I went to a small bakery here in Charleston for Connor's cake. I wanted a Mickey Mouse cake done in fondant. We used this same lady for his first birthday cake and it turned out awesome! However, this time she made one, very big mistake. I drove to West Ashley, picked up the cake, and drove home. It wasn't until I got back that I realized HIS NAME WAS SPELLED WRONG! I'm sure you can imagine my anger. I paid this bakery close to $200 and she spelled his name wrong. Then preceded to give me an excuse that she was tired when she did his cake and was sorry.. That's it. No future discount, no "I'll run over and fix it!!" no partial refund. Nothing. She offered to "try" and fix it if I came back, but I didn't have time to drive back before the party. Needless to say, we won't be using her again. As angry as I was about the cake, Connor can't read yet and didn't care. He loved it!

Happy Birthday Connor! :)
Everyone was singing "Happy Birthday" to him. 
Blowing out the candles!
