September 29th was Dylan's 3rd Birthday. Rachell made him breakfast in bed (Mickey Mouse shaped, apple-cinnamon pancakes with strawberries and whipped cream. We then watched an episode of Word World on the laptop in bed (TV in bed is something we don't usually do). Dylan's friend Max also had a birthday that day so we went to his party at Pump It Up and spent the afternoon jumping and playing with many great friends. Dylan even beat his dad on the air hockey table. Finally, we ended the day at a restaurant called Canyon's where the wait staff brought out his birthday cake. When Dylan got home, we all went on a hunt for his last birthday present. He finally found it in the garage. His new Mickey Mouse tricycle was a hit, as was his new bomber jacket. Here are pictures from the day as a whole.
Rachell made an amazing "Lightning McQueen" birthday cake for his Birthday. She actually made fondant and covered the cake. We then used food coloring that came in a spray-paint can (we really should have done that outside, as our socks still get red on the bottom from the cloud that settled in our apartment after we painted). We considered this a great success, especially since this was her first attempt at a fondant cake. These are pictures of the process of making Lightning.

We took Dylan and Peyton to Remlinger Farms for Dylan's Birthday. This is becoming one of our family's favorite traditions. Dylan really is coming out of his shell, and becoming more courageous. He allowed the fair workers to lift him on to three rides which he rode all by himself. Mom and Dad were very proud. One of the best parts of the day was when the pigmy goats nibbled on Peyton's foot. Hope you enjoy the pictures in the slide show below...
