Three Year Old Birthday Party: Go, Diego, Go!

Written by dad - Leave a Comment

Hmmm… I was just sifting through partially completed drafts and realized that I never published this back when I wrote it last November. Oh well, better late than never. Here goes…

Our youngest turned three earlier this week and, despite all of the germs flying around our house, we managed to squeeze in a happy little birthday party. We had originally planned on celebrating with family in the midst of our Thanksgiving travels, but we had to scrap those plans due to illness. Fortunately, we already had the necessary party supplies on hand, so we just changed venues.

As it turns out, this party was quite a milestone for our family. First of all, it marks the official end of the “terrible twos” in our household (though two has never been a particularly difficult age for us). Second, this was the first time that we actually dined in our new dinette.

As far as the “party” itself goes, it was a very simple affair. Since we hadn’t planned on being in town, there weren’t any outside guests. Rather, we just decorated the dinette with Diego (of Dora the Explorer fame) party favors, ate cake and ice cream, and lavished our newly-minted three year old with gifts. As disappointing as it was to have to stay in town for Thanksgiving, a quiet week to ourselves was just what we needed.
