JJ Jump Birthday Party

Ty with his monster truck cake!
Super easy cake to make...and the rock candies I found at Winco...they were tasty.
One of the birthday outfits he got...shorts and a "Big Guy" t-shirt. Grandpa Bruce calls him Big Guy and Ty thinks it is funny and refers to himself as the Big Guy.
The only great picture I got of the JJ Jump Facility we were at. I need to learn how to use my camera better. Everything was blurry. I wish I could learn in my sleep...that seems to be about the only time I have for "more" stuff right now...but that is a goal...better picture taking!
Ty helped make his cake...well he made sure it tasted alright! I caught him dipping the beaters in for another lick....I can say that now that the cake is gone! ha.

Ty's 3rd Birthday

Ty's request for his birthday dinner....Hamburger Helper (speaks volumes for my culinary skills)
We had dinner with just us on his birthday and saved his party for the next night with friends
Monster Mutt was his first present he opened...since he is now a Monster Truck Groupie!
Lauren made him a very special card which she presented to him and read to him. Then put it in a special place in his room for him to keep. She is a good big sister.
New birthday outfit! Shorts...of course and a monster truck jacket!!!
More pics will follow...Since I am blog challenged I can only load a few at a stay tuned

Monster Trucks

Grave Digger by far the favorite Moster Truck in this family
Ty loves pop corn and informed us he needed some while watching the monster trucks!

Lauren loved the show too...even though she missed her friends b-day party

There is just something about moster trucks that every family should go to. Ty was for sure the most excited for this. Even wore his new cowboy belt to the big event. He made sure that we brought his "plug ears" and that he needed popcorn to watch. I have to admit it was pretty fun. Something about loud engines and knuckleheads that just makes one smile. It is fun to watch the people in the crowd. You know there are die hard monster truck followers and they are truly passionate about thier favorite driver. Tommy and Ty go to deliver fuel to one of the trucks the day before the event and it was great for Ty. The guys were really nice and let Ty sit in the truck and fed him donuts....who couldnt love that! When he left he simply told the guys Thanks and to Haul Ass!
