Birthday Parties and Alligators

Last Saturday Micah Claire went to her buddy Asher's 3rd Birthday party.

She was a little hesitant at first about going down the slide.

After the 1st time down, she was hooked!

This is Brooklyn, M.C's friend from Gymnastics!

Here they are jumping in the bouncy castle!

Then it was time for cake!
Today Micah Claire's best little buddy, Aubree (AKA Aub's) had her 3rd birthday party at Chick-fil-A in hot springs.

This is the only picture I could get of these 2 sitting still. They were non-stop climbing and sliding!The birthday girl coming down the slide! Then M.C. coming down the slide; what a smile!
Then it was time to eat! Each kid-o got their own chicken nugget meal and drink. I looked at the cups and they had a clear liquid in it. I just assumed it was water. M.C. kept drinking and drinking and her eyes got read and started watering and I couldn't figure out what was going on. Finally she stopped drinking and said "Momma what is this?" I told her it was water and she said no momma it's not water it's wonderful! Jessica said it's Sprite, Shawn and I just feel out laughing. M.C. has never has a carbonated beverage; it was her first experience and she LOVED IT! She would not put that cup down to save her life; she drank the entire thing in a matter of seconds! Bless her heart, her life will never be the same after that; LOL!

Then it was time for the cake! After we sang to Aubs and they took the candles off, Aubs stuck her finger in the middle of the cake and then licked the icing off her fingers. Now that's my kind of girl! I just had to post this picture! Aubs was super excited about opening her presents and I think she snatched one up from her mom and this was Jessica's reaction!
After Aub's party we headed to the Alligator Zoo. This was M.C. and her daddy's first trip there. I think there were 200 people there, it was jammed packed!

I can't believe this man turns his back to all these hungry alligators; that's one brave, or maybe stupid man!

M.C wasn't too sure about these gators checking her out!

Checking out the HUGE logger head turtles.

They had little gators that you could touch. It took M.C. quit a while to work up the nerve to touch one.

This little goat kept jumping on daddy's leg and M.C. was just squeal; she thought it was the funniest thing in the world!

Here she is feeding the donkey her last piece of bread.

And then she stuck her empty hand back in and got nipped by the donkey! PRICELESS!

Me and my girl! When we left the alligator zoo it was well past her nap time; we didn't make it a few blocks down the road and she was out like a light. But as you can tell, even her nap wasn't separating her from her Chick-fil-A balloon and stuffed cow!

Finally home and still tired; nothing like cuddling on the couch with your daddy! :)
