Triplets’ Third Birthday Party

This past weekend we celebrated Juli, Elisha, and KJ’s third birthday party. It’s really hard to believe that the three little babies that came into the world and just around three pounds each have grown into these three little people with three wonderfully different personalities. The past three years haven’t been easy, and I’m sure there are many more challenges to come, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for anything. Happy Birthday Julianna, Elisha, and Kevin!

If you follow the blog or my twitter feed you know that the girls really haven’t been napping well, if at all. We scheduled the party just after the trips’ usual nap time. Of course, being the contrary little toddlers that they are, all three of them slept well past the start time of the party. We had to wake them up. This made for some tentative little people who wanted to cling to someone familiar.
Balloons helped to break the ice a little.
Balloon!!
Juli liked her balloon quite a bit.
Everyone enjoyed the sandbox.
The swings were a big hit, too.
