Blake Olivia: 3 years old

**Better late than never.  Her b-day was September 8th.**

Well, we now have a "threenager."  Three is going to be a fun but tough year.  Blake is too smart for her own good.  She genetically has been gifted with a stubborn streak. She can do so much now which makes things really fun but oh man is she tough on us.  She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to let us know .

Yes I know that I will one day, when she's about 13, be wishing for these days of toddler battles and potty struggles. I truly do love every moment with these kids and can (mostly) laugh off all the drama. You have to just laugh at the logic of a 3 year old or you will go crazy.

She wanted a Tangled themed birthday party and we wanted something easy so we did it at Pump It Up. I highly recommend a bounce place for a party.  They did everything for us, including packing up my car at the end. And the kids love it and are exhausted by the end.

Rapunzel stopped by and sang all the songs from the movie.

And we bounced.

  And then ate pizza and cake.

And in two hours we were out the door with no mess to clean up :)

 Also, we all had a Rapunzel themed t-shirts. Special thanks to the best dad ever for being a good sport about that. 

Then, the morning of her actual birthday we had a special donut cake and I took the morning off of work to celebrate :)

Taco 'Bout a Party! Tanner is ONE!
