Happy 3rd Birthday!!!

My little darling girl turns 3 today!!!!

We just got back from a fun trip to Niagara Falls and to an indoor water park! Ericka was in heaven!
Fallsview Water Park

The water park was huge and there was lots to do! We, the parents, probably had just as much fun as the kids! I wish I was rolling video when we walked into the water park upon arriving. Ericka's face lit up and she wouldn't stop smiling! We're pretty happy to have decided to celebrate her birthday in a small way than to go all out with a birthday party.  This was totally the way to go!

After a rip down the slides & a dip in the tidal wave pool, we cleaned up and went out for dinner at the Rainforest Cafe.

We rarely go out to dinner at a restaurant as a family because it's A LOT of work!!! To entertain the kids, feed them, make sure there happy etc.... we as the parents barely get to enjoy our own meal! But we made a real effort to make sure everyone would be happy during this outing! It helped that we sat next to the water fountain and that a fish tank was nearby with Ericka's favourite colour fishes (yellow!) It also helped to have the iPad on hand to entertain Evan while he ate!

The server heard it was Ericka's birthday and at the end of our meal brought her out a special birthday sundae!! Ericka was VERY happy!!

We enjoyed our food & the atmosphere and left pretty pleased.

Amazing time at the Rainforest Cafe
We can't believe how fast 3 years has gone by!! It didn't seem long ago we were holding a newborn baby girl at 6lbs 14 oz. Now at a hefty 34 - 35 lbs, she is growing so fast.. time is just flying!!!! Seriously!

Looking forward to more birthday celebrations!

For now, Happy 3rd Birthday my sweet little girl! WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH! xoxo
