Nate turned 3 a few weeks ago and we had a wonderful time with both a birthday day, just family, and then a proper party a week later.
His birthday always comes so quickly after Christmas that it hits us like BAM and we are sat choosing presents again (even though he doesn't need very much) and wrapping again. Sick of the sight of wrapping paper haha. It was all worth it though when he woke on his birthday morning. I'm so glad it was a Sunday, so James didn't have to take a day off work to be with us.
This year he unwrapped a Spiderman scooter, a Teenage Ninja Turtles dress up, Playdoh, a toolbox, a Nerf gun and some superheroes! Each unwrapping was met with a grin and a gasp... so much fun watching him open presents.
I served the boys Brioche for breakfast and then we got up and dressed to take the boys out on their scooter/ skateboard. It was freeeeeezing so we didn't stay out long, just long enough for Nate to get somewhat to grips with how his scooter worked. We grabbed a KFC on the way home and waited for Uncle Ryan to drop by. He had a family ticket for W5 and we thought it would make a great birthday outing!
After spending a few hours in W5, we went to Nando's for dinner. It's always a fail safe for us, the boys love the food there and they get all you can eat frozen yoghurt afterwards! When dinner was done it was straight home for cake and bed. Hulk cake that is.
