Parks and Parties

Happy Birthday Aunt Alli! We stopped by Alli's house on her lunch break to say happy bday. Before hand, we were at Bigby coffee, and Micah was telling everyone he saw that he was going to Alli's for her bday! too cute. 
Afterwards, we went to Riverview park and enjoyed the warmer weather.  Micah is a huge fan of the swings!
 He also enjoyed the merry-go-round.  I asked if he was dizzy, and he said no. Then while trying to get off, he fell down and laughed because he couldn't hold himself up!
 Rewind to the weekend-we traveled to Ann Arbor/Saline Friday to celebrate Lydia's first bday! I'm terrible and din't take any pictures, but it was fun and Lydia was too cute in her ladybug outfit and tutu!
Saturday on the way home, Matt insisted we go to Mongolian BBQ for dinner because we haven't been in a few years.  Micah loved the rice and ate it right from the bowl.

 Adelie's first Mongo BBQ visit.

Micah is 3!

Micah was officially 3 years old this past Wednesday, April 3rd! I can't believe I have a 3 year old...
Today we had family and friends over to celebrate.  Since it was the first week of baseball, we had a Tiger's baseball themed party.
Ballpark food-Baby Ruths, Baseball cupcakes, lemonade (also served but not pictured-hot dogs, popcorn, beer, Big League Chew, and not baseball themed but served fruit, chips, and cake and ice cream)
 Baseball cupcakes (thanks Pinterest for the idea!)
 Singing Happy Birthday
 Blowing out the candles
 Sorry, didn't get any pics of opening presents. It was mayhem! There were 7 kids age 4 and under, and there were 4 of them wanting and trying to open gifts... :) 
A lot of the boys went outside to play teeball, corn hole, and just chew their Big League gum.
 Which thanks to Matt, Micah calls "Chaw" gum, and he wanted to show it to me...
real cute Micah
 And that is Gabe in the background playing teeball!
 And since it was his birthday, I had to pull old pictures and reminisce!
This was taken April 1st, 2010- two days before Micah was born!
 April 3rd, 2010, 12:13pm, Micah was born!
 One day old, taking a break from being under the lights (he was jaundiced)
 This is from when he was one!
 First Birthday
 Second Birthday
Micah, we love you so much! We are so blessed to have you in our lives and are honored to be your parents!
(Funny thing Micah has been saying to me, and now I know he is listening when I talk to him... "I love you Mama, but you need to listen!)

Ok, this isn't Easter, but soo cute! The Maier cousins, cheering for Michigan last Friday night!
Coloring Easter eggs

 Easter at Grandma and Papa Maier's
 Seriously, this is the best one we got of the two of them...they would not cooperate!
 These are the two best family shots. 
This is right before Micah threw himself on the ground in protest.
 Our pretty princess
 Micah had a rough day. He had a bad cough and probably had a fever. Snuggling with Aunt Jan!
 Easter Egg Hunt
 Adelie playing on the floor. She had just rolled over for the first (and then the second) time!

Today we went to get the kids pictures done (Adelie will be 3 months old tomorrow and Micah 3 yrs old on Wed).  We planned on getting pics of them separately and then together.  Micah did not cooperate. He had 2 pics taken-one he had a straight face, the other a scowl and looking down.  Not what I had hoped for! Adelie however performed beautifully, and in less than 3 minutes we had at least 10 great smiling pics! So good for her, better luck next time for the rest of the pics!
