Pierce's belated birthday party... a construction site...

Pierce's birthday is in Jan.. but we were in Texas so we have had a couple of small parties until this past weekend when we had the BIG one... while in Texas I bought all the party supplies and my parents brought them to us when they came... we had a "Construction Party"... I was torn on what to do for his party this year bc he is so into Transformers, super hero's, spiders, etc... and the occasional truck... but I wanted his party to be some what cute and fun too... he is only 3... not 10... so when I talked with my good friend Shelly she said you have the next 10 years to have a themed party that he wants so why don't you just do something you like too. So we had a Construction party... with yellow tape, hard hats, dump trucks and more... oh what fun.

We had the party at our condo function hall so the kids could make a mess and swim all at the same time...

Here are some pics of the party.





When Pierce walked in I think he was on overload... all his people in one room and all this truck stuff.. he loved it... see he's even wearing his tractor shirt and Ben 10 watch that Cena gave him.


One of the first things he did was get on his new 'Big Jake"... still having some issues with pedaling (he just does not want to do it... we know he can but he refuses)... so we sit and push it alot.


There was a coloring station with lots of construction trucks on it... the kids seemed to enjoy this table... even the big kids.

So thankful that Grandad and Vivi were there for the party.

My friend Jennifer offered to make this cake for his party... I told her one day that I had an invitation for her and her 5 children and she said "do you want me to make the cake"... are you kidding me... "heck ya"... and check this cake out... It could not have been more perfect... we just love you Jennifer... thank you bunches... with 5 kids she has had alot of practice...

Still on the tractor...

Finally he came to the table to color and have some juice...

And then he spotted the presents... before eating he ran over there to get a present... the deal was one present and then the rest later...

This is Pierce showing you how old he is... it took him forever to learn the 3 fingers... I was trying to teach him to touch his thumb to his pinkie and it just want not working... my mom suggested touching his pointer to his thumb and wallah... he did it... thank you ViVi.




Now time for some pool fun...






Anyone ready for some cake.... I never thought we would get everyone back together again... boy was I wrong... one look at the cake and they came a runnin... and yes it was that good.

We have several traditions on Pierce's birthday and he is only 3... one of them is that Pierce has to be wearing a hat of some kind... you can see this blog post here about that.... and then we have to get a family pic around the cake with Pierce's hat on... you can see last years here... and the only other one is that he has to have something he can ride or sit on that goes with the theme... check out last years here...



With one blow... they were out... hope you get your wish this year sweet baby.

I can't remember what we were clapping about here but I thought it was a cute picture...

Back inside riding the tractor... Mr. Jamey was convinced to teach Pierce how to pedal.

More hugs... and more presents.

Here is every one's art from the day...

and one more ride... Pierce calls Violet his girlfriends so this was their official ride together... he literally picked her up...

Happy 3rd Birthday sweet Pierce... more of our words for you on your 3rd birthday here.

Thanks to everyone that celebrated with us and making it the best day ever... we love you all.

So fun! I think we might do a truck party this year, so I may take a few notes on your party. Also, your lilypie counter says Pierce is 4... just a heads up. Hope all is well

I absolutely love the construction theme....I agree with Shelly....this is our turn to pick the party because in a few years, we get no say.
