Desert Girl recently turned 3, which to her means that she is now a big girl. To me, that means it is time to be toilet trained! So diapers are out the window (so to speak) and Desert Girl is using the toilet like a big girl. This tactic worked with Desert Boy amazingly well, and is going well so far with Desert Girl.
But back to the birthday. We decided to have two celebrations. One for kids in the local gym so they could run around and have fun, and a family gathering later in the day after my husband was done with work.
I took a bunch of dress up clothes to the gym, and the kids had fun trying on different outfits.
We played some bean bag toss and the kids switched outfits and ran around (at least the younger ones. The bigger ones were doing something in the corner!)
Then came the blowing out candles part. Desert Girl seems to have a hard time aiming her breath.
Nevertheless, she eventually succeeded!
It was a relaxing time with family, and Desert Boy even had us all playing an alphabet game.
