Cheyenne’s 3rd Birthday Weekend

Leave a comment

We have had a rough couple of weeks since Cheyenne’s birthday, so I haven’t had a chance to write about it until now, since things have finally settled down.  A few days after her birthday and party, she got some sort of stomach virus and got sick a couple of times, then when I thought it was gone, it came back a couple of days later and she got sick a couple more times over the next 36 hours.  I think we are finally done with it (fingers crossed) and can get back to our normal yet chaotic existence.

I can’t believe my little baby girl is 3 years old!  Has it been that long?  It sure doesn’t seem like it, but every day is a blessing, albeit sometimes quite challenging.

We celebrated Cheyenne’s 3rd birthday a couple of weeks ago and as in past years, it was lots of fun and also as in past years, I was glad when it was over.  Huge thanks go out to my awesome friend Vanessa, who took some beautiful pictures to help capture this special day, since I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off making sure everything was just right.  Thanks Vanessa!!

But we had a great time at her party and she was so excited when her cousins from Austin got there!

Her party was at one of the spraygrounds down the street from our house and a lot of her friends came to celebrate her special day! 

They played on the sprayground….

Ate some cake….

All in all, it was a great day of celebration with our friends and family!

The next day,Cheyenne’s cousins had to go back home, but we had a chance to have a little bit of fun before they had to leave.  My grandparents’ neighbor Charles came out to play with all of the girls and they all had a great time!  Cheyenne especially loved Charles’s Texas Rangers float.  She hardly got off of it.

Then it was time for presents from Mimi & Pop….

If you have ever tried to get a group picture of kids, you understand that this was as good as it was going to get!!  Here’s all the cousins sitting together, briefly….

So we had a great weekend and were so happy that my sister, brother-in-law and sweet little nieces were able to make it up for Cheyenne’s special weekend!!
