Happy Birthday Mac

Mac's day started out like this...

Then we headed out to Boyd's Orchard...

"Smile" and this is what I got:)
Gray feeding the Goats
Mac was too scared to feed the goats and did not want G to feed them either. He was crying, "No GG." and pulling him away from the goats. He's so protective with G. It's pretty cute.

Climbing the mountain of hay.

Even though Mac didn't want to go down the slide, G was all for it. He got going a little too fast and crashed at the bottom and again cut his nose. The poor thing.

Mac had a rough morning with some major tantrums. Grandpa took him outside and told him he couldn't go back inside until he promised he wouldn't scream. Mac laid down on the grass put his hands behind his head and stayed that way for 15 minutes. Then got up and said, "Ok, I won't scream." STUBBORN!
Now for the Party...
Grandma Mom got him a BYU uniform. He put it on and took off running around the house. I don't know who loved it more. Drew or Mac.

Me and Mom made a dinosaur train cake and cupcakes. When mac saw the cake he started singing the Dinosaur Train theme song.
Mac had a fantastic birthday. Thanks to all his friends that stopped by to drop off presents and wish him a happy birthday. And to the family that called and sent him presents. Everyone was so thoughtful.

My little Brother Scott who is serving a mission in Italy sent Mac a present and card. At the bottom you can see that he drew a dinosaur which Mac loved but said "Tell uncle Scotty to draw a T-rex next time." funny kid.
He got Mac a Italia T-shirt and little hippo candies.
In Italy they have a super Market chain called "Super Mac." so Scott sent us a bag and cut one out and taped it to the back of the shirt. Doesn't Mac have the cutest uncle!!!

We had a great long weekend with my parents. They came into town to once again celebrate Mac's birthday and visit the Covered Bridge craft Festival in Indiana. We tasted all the local flavors like, fried Twinkies, fried curd, fried onions, broccoli, mushrooms, cauliflower, but we past up the fried snickers. Maybe next time. It rained the whole time but we had a great time.

When we got back to Lexington, Mac and Grandpa played dinosaurs. Which consist of Mac telling everyone what dinosaur to be and what they eat. Then they chase each other around. My dad is a great sport.
we went on a nice Sunday walk...
Stopped at the park, Gray went down all the slides like this whether we were ready for him or not. Notice the scratches and scuffed nose. The kid is crazy, running into things and tripping over everything. He is careless and fearless which is not a good combination.

But the highlight of the weekend was celebrating this little guys birthday....
I can't believe he's 3!

This past year with Mac has been a lot of fun, he has turned into a little man. I have loved watching him interact with other kids, he's a super social boy. Loves to be around people.
He talks and talks. I feel like I'm constantly telling people, "Sorry you really don't have to listen to him." He just has so much to say, especially about dinosaurs. I will have to admit it's pretty cute when he starts talking about his favorite dinosaurs and describing them. He's a smart little thing.
Mac is such a good boy with a big heart. We love you Mac!

Happy Birthday "Mac's 2" Mac's 1
