We celebrated Violet's third birthday in a big way! We spent last week in the Florida Keys with the Robillard/Armstrong/Cook families and had a great week watching the cousins play. We celebrated Owen turning 1, Violet turning 3 and Uncle Andy turning 35! We played at the playground, swam in the ocean, visited dolphins, went on a boat ride, ate and ate and ate, went to bed late, slept poorly, and missed a lot of naps.
We returned home Saturday night and Sunday was Violet's actual birthday. We planned to celebrate low-key just us so we could recover from the trip and get ready for the week. In the morning Violet opened her gifts - a purple "Violet Flyer" tricycle and her very own umbrella. Both were a hit. While we were practicing riding her bike all the neighborhood friends joined us and it turned into an impromptu party. I love to have them all here and the girls do too.
For dinner Violet requested letter soup and fish, and purple cupcakes. It was a great day.
Happy birthday Violet (aka "I like purple because I am purple")!
