We celebrated Esme's 3rd birthday yesterday (officially 3 on April 14th.) We had a Paw Patrol party with a focus on Everest. Lunch was a hot dog bar. The menu was:
Traditional hot dogs
Natural casing hot dogs
Toppings: chili, shredded cheddar, french fried onions, fritos, tomato, onion, olives, onions, pickles, sauerkraut, pepperoncini, bacon, ketchup, mustard, BBQ sauce, hot sauce.
We opened presents after lunch. I was trying to hide the big one for last, but Esme insisted on opening it first, then insisted on unboxing it.
She was distracted for a whole, so her best buddy, Miggy, helped to open some of them. He liked the bed tent she got, but was unimpressed with the sparkly clothing.
She had a good time once we got her refocused.
Cake was next! I intended to place an Everest figure on top, but underestimated the difficulty of finding one is store. After a fruitless trip to four Targets, I settled for a puptag made of candy melts. I made trees from pretzels and candy melts along with piped snowflakes.
used a tie-dyd technique inside the cake with purple and teal.
Parker was talking about the birthday party all week and was so excited when he finally got a cupcake!
All our friends were gone before I could slow down enough to take a picture. It was such a great day celebrating Esme!
Nap Time = Party Success!
