Lane's actual birthday was a day filled with fun! It fell on a Tuesday this year, so he wasn't in school that day and was able to do lots of fun things with mommy and daddy.
All for the birthday boy!
Kyle had to work that day, so we let Lane open one gift before he left and saved the rest for that night when he got home.
Kisses for daddy before work
A happy guy ready for his bday celebrations!
The gift Lane opened that morning was a circus truck with magnetic animals just like his school bus he got last Easter.
He loves it!
A special breakfast for the birthday boy. Lane LOVES cinnamon rolls from Whataburger and requested that for his bday breakfast. I put a number 3 sparkler on top and got some cute pictures. THEN, after the sparkler finished sparkling, Lane grabbed it to pull it out and said "time to eat!" The poor guy burned his little finger and put him in a sad mood for a while after!
Next stop: His 3 year checkup!
Waiting for Dr. Broberg
Dr. Broberg said Lane was perfectly healthy! He weighed 29.2 lbs (25th percentile) and was 37 in tall (50th percentile.) He commented on Lane's strong vocabulary and Lane told him about having a dinosaur birthday party.
After the doctor appointment we headed to Panera for lunch. (Another one of Lane's faves.)
We finished up our lunch and then headed to Locomotion--an indoor play place with bounce houses, ride-on toys, and pretend play set-ups. We went here a while back and Lane enjoyed it, and since it was cold and windy out we decided to go play there.
Lane loved climbing up the frog's mouth and sliding down.
We spent a lot of time in the "diner" area. Fixing up plates and bringing them to me.
Some obligatory b-day photos with the flag I made him.
This one cracks me up!
When daddy got home we were ready to go to dinner. Lane talked us into opening presents and THEN going to dinner, so that's what we did!
Gran got Lane a teddy bear that has a recording of her voice!
A dinosaur bank and birthday book
A microphone from mommy and daddy. Lane is very into music and instruments right now, so I knew he'd love it!
One of his favorite gifts -- a vet kit!
We had a yummy dinner at Chick Fil A! Another one of Lane's requests.
And then........cake time! I made Lane's cake the night before, so we had been staring at it and wanting to eat it for a while!
And a few iphone pics
Happy Birthday, Lane Austen!
