Happy 3rd Birthday Vincent!

"I'm three years old today."
"Is it still my birthday?"

Vincent had a very fun 3rd birthday.  A birthday snack at school of apples and strawberries and pears.  A big ole nap, then opening cards and presents.  A yummy steak dinner and cake.  Then we went to Alex's chorus concert at school.

Blowing out the jar candle.  Ms. Debra took these.  That's CeCe next to Vincent.

From the entire day - including Alex's Chorus concert.
