Happy Birthday Ben!

On July 19th, Ben turned 3.  We celebrated a few days later, and I'm just now getting a chance to post the pics.  Between working, job hunting, and planning for the new school year, it's been a little busy.  In the last few weeks we've been to Ohio, Illinois, North Carolina, and Kentucky.  Trying. So. Hard.  Still waiting.  But better to post later, rather than never, right?

Happy boy on his special day.  Blue stains to be explained in the next photo.


Cheap entertainment.  Blue dye no. 5.  Must be a party at the Brown's!

Birthday boy worked up a thirst getting dirty in the sandbox, wrong tub big guy!

Presents?  I could learn to like those!

Blowing out the candles.

Shoving a whole cupcake in at once.  Cookie monster style.

More blue dye.

Yum, that was good.

Happy Birthday to our little man.  Looking forward to celebrating many, many more together.


  1. Hey Em! Finally a new post for you!

    So happy for you and your family to share this "first" one with him. What a very special occasion.

    He is too damn cute I tell ya!

  3. Ben eating his cupcake was my favorite part!

  4. Happy Birthday to your little Cookie Monster! He is too adorable...I just can't stand it! (May have to steal your idea of taking a pic of address that!)
