Samuel's favorite book is Cars and Trucks and Things That Go! by Richard Scarry. Every night for three months, I think I read that book to him. It's the one where you search for Goldbug on each page.
See Goldbug hiding up above? When our guests arrived, they each received a sheet sending them on a quest to find at least 10 Goldbugs hiding around the house. Perfect activity for the older siblings who came to celebrate Samuel turning three!

Mom, Samuel and Daddy
Happy Birthday to you!
I baked a cake and added a few little toys to the top. Mr. Frumble in his pickle car, Lowly in his apple car and a Gorilla in his banana car helped make Samuel's birthday bright.
We only invited three sweet little friends and their families to celebrate with us. Just keeping it simple these days. Love our friend, Keyon.
Sweet Sebastian, who Samuel calls "Mr. Sebastian"
Love the look of amazement and excitement from Keyon!
Samuel with quite possibly his favorite gift, a card that sings, "Hey, Samuel!" and finishes with the Happy Birthday song. Found it at Party City and the girls insisted on getting it for him. Glad I listened!
Super Samuel pjs and t-shirt for Daddy
New rug to play cars on
We played cars in the backyard.
Then we ate pizza for lunch. There's our neighbors Cooper and Miss Molly. Samuel and the girls LOVE to visit Cooper.

Three balloons for a big three-year-old
So happy to celebrate with Nana and Papa!
As a party favor, we sent each friend home with a copy of Samuel's favorite book and balloons. What a perfect day to celebrate our BIG boy!
