On Wednesday we celebrated Grace's third birthday.  As Grace gets older she is really starting to get excited about parties, and presents and getting dressed up.  We celebrated her actual birthday with just the three of us.

Mom, I can fly!!!

On Saturday we had some friends and family over for a party.  Grace loved hanging out with her friends and cousins and celebrating her big day with them.

We had yet another bithday party to attend on Sunday for Grace's China travelmate Annika.  We were also joined by another travelmate, Mei Lu.  It is great seeing these girls playing together and how much they have grown over the past few years.

A Couple Firsts and Our Annual Trip to Smolack Farm

This was am action packed week for us.  On Thursday Grace had her first day of Preschool.  We are having a hard time believing she is already in preschool.  She was a little nervous on her first day but did great overall.

Grace also started dance class this week.  She will be takng tap and ballet.  Jen is already well on her way to becoming a  stage mom.

This past Saturday we took out annual trip to Smolack Farm for apple picking, pumpkins and a hayride.  Always a good time.

Oh Dear!!!

I can't decide, I guess I will take them all.

A boost from daddy

Enjoying the fruits of her labor
