Happy Birthday, John!

This little boy turns 3-years-old tomorrow.  We had a backyard birthday party for him on Saturday.  The weather was just about perfect, and we spent most of the time playing outside.
Or relaxing outside depending on your age and stage.
Jay led the kids in a raucous sing-along (is there any other kind of sing-along?) with some of our favorite songs like Old MacDonald and the ABCs.
All the kids had instruments and played and sang.  It was quite loud and pretty darn cute.
John requested chocolate cake with chocolate icing and chocolate ice cream.  What the birthday boy wants, the birthday boy gets!
I think everyone enjoyed their chocolatey treat!
And, of course, John loved opening his presents.  Please note that you can clearly see 3 other children in this very close-up photo.  All the kids felt that they could not possibly be close enough to the present opening action!
Happy birthday, John Boy.  We love you and love you and love you.
