Since her birthday was on Sunday, we decided it would be easier to celebrate it on Saturday and just tell her that Saturday was her birthday :). We took her to Jumpin' Jacks -- a place with tons of inflatable bouncey toys and slides -- and invited the Cummings to come with us. Chloe had a blast and we had a hard time getting her to leave.
Then we took her out to dinner and had Grandparents come over for cake and ice cream. We have decided to only have a big party every other year, thus the reason for only having grandparents over. Grandma Barbara and Grandpa Bob were sick that day and couldn't make it, and Grandpa Ron was out of town, so he couldn't come either. Despite the missing Grandparents, Chloe still had fun opening presents and playing with her new toys.
One of the biggest hits was her new kitchen that my parents got her. She loves it and hasn't stopped playing "food" since. However, I would say that the box of dress-up clothes that she got from the Cummings was a close second. So, even though we didn't have a big party, Chloe's third birthday was a success and she had a great time.
