Brooklyn's Birthday

Today was Brooklyn's 3rd Birthday. I can't believe she's 3! This year she is going to have a real birthday party, with friends and everything on Saturday. But, we still celebrated her birthday today with presents from Mommy and Daddy (and Joshy). She got Buzz and Woody dolls (three guesses as to what her favorite movie is), a fishing pole, and her very first pets... FISH!  We had the tank set up for her this morning, and after breakfast, we went to the pet store and she picked out her fish. She named them, Mommy, Daddy, Joshy and Brooklyn. :)

Then, as a nonrelated event, we had a wood flooring salesman come to our house to help us pick out the new wood flooring and to give us the final/revised estimate. At least Brooklyn enjoyed playing with all the samples. :)

After he left, we packed up and headed to the beach for a couple of hours. Brooklyn really wanted to try out her fishing pole, but on the first cast, it got tangled up really bad and then got stuck and we couldn't go fishing anymore. She was pretty disappointed, which proves she's got some Fisher in her yet. :) So, with fishing no longer an option, she just dug holes in the sand and chased waves.

Joshua really enjoyed the beach, too. It was his first trip to the beach this year, so sand was a new and interesting substance to him. He tried to eat some, but after some crying and a paci for a plug, he decided that was not a good idea. So he just dug in the sand just like Brooklyn, and chased waves, just like Brooklyn. :)

Then we came home, ate some Arby's (Brooklyn loves roast beef sandwiches) and, after Happy Birthday and 3 blown out candles, we had some ice cream cake.

After baths, Brooklyn got to fall asleep on the couch watching... you guessed it... Toy Story 3. :) What a fun Birthday.
