Sims' 3rd Birthday Party

We had Sims' big birthday bash this Sunday at Pullen Park.  When given a choice, he chose to have a party where he could ride the train and the carousel, and he was so excited about it.  He asked me a few times over the past month if I wanted to come to his birthday party.  Of course, I said, "Yes!"  This was the first party where we invited some of his friends from school, which made this even more special for him.

Since he loves, loves, loves trains, we went with that theme.  We had a picnic shelter, so we didn't go all out with decorations, but we did do a few things to jazz it up a bit.

Jason heard one of the kids exclaim, "I'm drinking train water!"  That definitely made those labels worth it.

Between the bubble machine and the train riding by, the kids had a blast.  They ran and chased the bubbles like crazy.  Then whenever the train came by, they ran to the fence to wave.

As soon as the train was gone, they were back in the bubbles.

Of course, no train party would be complete without a train ride.  After the ride, we ate pizza and brownies.

Then it poured down rain, but that didn't stop the party!  The kids loved it.  They were all soaking wet when they left.  I couldn't have planned a better activity for them.  I think all the children had a wonderful time at the party, and that makes me so happy!

I know this little birthday boy had a blast!

I love the seriousness on both of their faces as the train passed and the fact that sidewalk chalk is literally all over Isla.
