Happy 3rd Birthday to Graham!

We recently celebrated Graham's 3rd birthday on the 22nd in Phoenix, AZ.  I didn't have too much time to think about a cake, so I ended up making chocolate cake out of a box and drawing out one of his favorite cartoon characters - Bot.  I'm just so happy that Graham recognized it!
We didn't have a light at home (darn electric stove-top!) so we tried to use the magnifying glass in the 100F heat.  We got smoke but unfortunately no fire. You can sort of see the trail of smoke.  It's almost scary how quickly the dry leaf started to smoke!
Eventually, Daddy had to just get the light from the grill.  Graham was very excited to blow out his cake:
We still can't believe he's 3 years old now!
So glad Grandma and Pop-pop were able to join us in Phoenix!
Graham liked the cake...
but I think he liked the presents a whole lot better.
Along with the playdoh crane, Graham also got some new duplo legos from Grandma and Pop-pop.  Well, we know which one is his favorite!
After a quick rest, we decided to fill up a sand pit with water. Charlie loved splashing in it!
And putting whatever he could into his mouth:
Graham, on the other hand, just wanted to put all of his toys into the water:
There's just something about this boy and his excavator:
See what I mean?!
I think all in all, Graham had a great birthday!
