I can’t believe it’s been three whole years since I arrived! I’ve grown so much and have learned so many things! I can’t wait to see what next year has in store for me!
Mommy was being nostalgic today, so if you want to take a look back into the day I was born, here’s my blog entry!: http://blog.beachfamily.us/2011/08/welcome-benjamin-roy-beach.html
Since Daddy’s getting home late from work this week, we decided to open up a few of my presents last night, since my sisters couldn’t wait ANY longer! I LOVE presents!
Abigail bought me a train conductor outfit, and Mommy and Daddy got me a Diesel train from Thomas!
They were great, but nothing compared to the James train and track signal that I got from Emily! She knew I loved James!
In fact, I love James so much that I wouldn’t put him down to finish opening my presents!
Good thing my sisters were there to help!
I got my favorite “choo-choo boy” movie that I haven’t seen in weeks since it was dropped by Netflix!
I got pretty good at opening everything up one-handed, and I loved my Thomas memory game!
Thank you for the awesome Superman hat Mor-Mor & Grandpa Dave! It’s the only hat I will keep on!
Finally, I could stop with the presents so I could play with my trains!!!!!!
Mommy & Daddy had a big surprise for me upstairs… they took my crib rail off to make it into a big boy toddler bed for me! When I went up to see it, I was so upset that I had to stop playing trains for a minute, that I didn’t take the news well…
Once I was assured I could bring Thomas, Diesel, James AND my signal house to bed with me, I was a lot happier & excited about my new bed!
I surprised everyone by not getting out of my bed ONCE, but I did stay up playing trains until they had to take away my noisy signal at 11 O’CLOCK at night!
Even though I went to bed super late, I was up at the crack of dawn asking for my trains back… I did great and got to wake up on my 3rd birthday in a big boy bed!
Mommy and Daddy had put up some decorations for breakfast, and I loved all the dinosaurs!
We spent the morning celebrating my birthday at the zoo with my best friend Jake and his brothers and sisters!
Of course, Thomas and James came along too…
My highlight of the trip was the train ride… of course! And now that I’m 3, Mommy let me sit with my friend in our own row!
Emily was pretty excited to spend the day with her best friend too!
We loved the sting ray touch tank, and Abby even touched the shark!
They even had a dinosaur-themed park to play in for my dinosaur birthday!
We loved going in to pet the sheep and goats!
It was so HOT, so we LOVED playing in the sprayers they had set up around the zoo!
This is the sign of a 3-year-old who was too excited to sleep last night, and spent the day running around at the hot zoo! Even 3-year-olds still need to nap…
After another successful nap of NOT getting out of my bed, it was time to enjoy the rest of the day!
First, I started with a dip in the pool…
Then we headed to Fudruckers for dinner, and of course Thomas and James came with me… Again…
I even got my last two train presents there… a Tboby and Spencer! I am in little boy HEAVEN!!!
A quick ride on the merry go round…
When we got back home, we opened a few cards and one last gift before digging into my M&M ice cream cake!
Happy Birthday to Me!!! Thank you for all the calls, cards & gifts! Three is going to be an AWESOME year!
