Raylan's Birthday; Update

Hi!  Friday was Raylan's 3rd birthday!
It seemed like he had a really good birthday.  He spent Thursday night with Grandma and Papa.  Friday he spent a lot of time at the park and playing with his grandparents (the boy loooves Grandma and Papa!).

Friday evening my mom and dad brought Raylan back to the house.  Our family friends, Rick and Peggy, were in town visiting my folks, and they came over as well.  We ate some pizza and salad, ate some birthday cake, and Raylan got to open some presents.

hold it)
Raylan had a lot of fun playing with everyone on Friday night.  Between the party with his friends last Saturday and the pizza party this Friday, he had a great birthday.  It was really nice to see Rick and Peggy.

On Saturday we ran some errands.  We tried to go to the park, but it started drizzling, and we had to walk home in the misty rain.
Saturday night we got a babysitter for a few hours and met up with Kit, Shelly, Emily, and Joe for dinner at Via 313.  It was great to see them, and we had a really good time.  It was the first time we had all gotten together since Spencer and Cecilia had been born.  It was nice to catch up.

It's so great to see you guys!  Let me just answer this text really quick...

Steanso with the blondies!
On Sunday we took Raylan over to La Posada.  He ate a ridiculous amount of food at breakfast.  He loves that place.

Just one more potato, Dad.
On Sunday the weather was cool, clear, and beautiful.  We washed our cars.  Amy went for a run in our neighborhood, and I took a bike ride.  Raylan and I took a little walk and stopped by to see Mandy.

Raylan, drawing a car.  I know I'm biased, but I think that's pretty
good for a 3 year old!

April bike ride.  I wanted a shot of this crazy tall tower they are putting up,
The Independent.  It's going to be the tallest tower downtown, and it looks
like a bunch of Jenga blocks that are about to fall.  

Anyway, that was pretty much our weekend.
I had band practice Friday evening.  All of the guys were there, and we sounded pretty good.
Hope everyone has a great week!
