The boys are now three and boy did we celebrate. Birthday became almost two week celebration.
It started with spreading out there presents. Once a day they would get to open a present. They got some movies and toys.
The Saturday before their birthday, we went to the zoo. They got to ride on the train and see the dinosaur exhibit.
At zoo, they have this thing that looks like a spider web that kids can climb up. Jasper wanted to see it and Joy thought he wouldn't climb it, so no big deal.
Jasper had no problem climbing it! Jacob was a little reserved at first but then saw Jasper and then lost his fear.
There were a lot of older kids there, scared to climb it. We noticed other parents were some-what jealous and trying to get their older kids to climb it.
At one point Jasper done and grabbed on to another rope then jumped to another rope. Totally monkey-like and awesome to watch. I commented on how awesome it was so did another dad. Jasper was so pleased.
The next day, we took the boys to ride Thomas the Train through the cuyahoga valley national park. It was way bigger than we thought it would be. They had tents set up with activities.
There was a bounce house and a few other attractions that required waiting in lines. The weren't too pleased with that.
We got on the train and boys were upset no one took their tickets. Jasper kept trying to give his ticket to someone. Finally someone came and stamped their tickets. They were very pleased.
Joy let Jacob take pictures with the camera on the train. He got such a kick out of taking pictures.
The boys really enjoyed riding on the train.
On their actual birthday, we were going to go to Lodi outlet mall to let the boys ride on the train. But I think they were pretty warn out and cranky from too much activity the last few days.
We stayed at home and Joy's mom got them an ice cream cake. It had Toy Story on it with the boys pictures. It was really yummy and we killed it in a week.
