"Happy Birthday, Gracie and Lukie!" I said, turning on the light.
"Yay," shouted Gracie, jumping up and down on her bed. "I'm three! I can ride the roller coaster!"
"Yay! Yay! Yay!" came from Lukie's side.
Thus began our day long birthday party.
Despite the crazy number of people there, we rode all of the rides (some more than once).
|Lukie driving a fire truck.|
|Gracie and Bianca driving a rescue wagon. Love that smile, Gracie!|
|Emmie taking Uncle Mike for a spin. She was such a crazy driver.|
|My three year old cutie!|
|Emmie and Nathan on the planes.|
|Lukie and Auntie Ten Ten waiting for the ride to start.|
|Gracie and Hailey rode the last car. I think the reality of the roller coaster was starting to set in for Gracie.|
|Gracie holding onto Hailey for dear life as the roller coaster took its first turning descent.|
We tried to get them to go back on, but I think roller coasters are out for the foreseeable future. At least we got pictures!
We finished our trip to Adventure City with the mini cupcakes that Gracie, Lukie and I made the day before. As requested, they were cupcakes with sprinkles inside and out. Everybody loved them and there weren't any left! We also opened presents and Gracie and Lukie were totally excited to see Candy Land, Chutes and Ladders, Dora and Diego Beanie Babies, cool new drawing boards, a dinosaur, a unicorn, and money!! Gracie informed me that she would like to use her money to buy a jeep. "One I can ride on, Mommy!"
We all headed over to Portillo's in Buena Park for Italian Beef Sandwiches (Daddy was very happy) and finally headed home. Gracie and Lukie had an amazing day and they were so thankful for their cousins, aunts, uncle and Nana who came to celebrate with them.
Now, they want a party so that everyone can come play Candy Land!
