So, Graham has been 3 for two months, but the pictures have been stuck on a camera. Graham had a fun excavator birthday party. If you had asked me what an excavator was three years ago, I would have tried to change the subject while secretly researching "what is an excavator?" on my iphone (Oh wait, I still had my 1980's phone then). But today, I can proudly point out a tractor, excavator, bulldozer, and front loader. And contrary to my former belief, they are not all the same.
You see, that's what happens when you have a boy. You learn about heavy machinery, and you too get excited when you spot one in a field. Your heart beats a little faster when you notice that it has tracks and not wheels. It's just something that happens when you have a boy. Since Graham "digs" excavators, I had to let go of my tendency to do a sweet little baby party and give him a big boy one!(To be honest it is hard to only find excavators so it was more of a construction party). Jeff's mom made the cake and let Graham decorate it with heavy machinery. Graham had a blast with that.
We also filled a kiddie pool with pea gravel so he could do a little excavating of his own. It was a fun, manly birthday for our sweet 3 year old.
