March 10 - Audrey's 3rd birthday!

We had a birthday breakfast for lunch today (I worked a couple hours this morning). The meal consisted of sopapilla, eggs, and strawberries. Since I wasn't planning on making a cake today, I decided that it would be a good idea to stick Audrey's birthday candles in the sopapilla for her to blow them out.

Guess what.

That wasn't such a good idea.

The sopapilla was fresh out of the oven when I put the candles in, and... well... the candle bottoms melted.

I was wondering why after a minute or so they started tipping over...

Candles melting in the hot sopapilla makes perfect sense - in hindsight

So, we wound up putting the candles in Audrey's eggs instead, and I got to serve delicious sopapilla that had 3 small holes in it filled with pink, yellow, and green wax. Lovely.

Birthday girl didn't care where the candles were though. She just liked us singing to her and getting to blow out the candles. She was so proud!

After opening presents...

... we surprised the girls with a trip to Kangarooz. It's a playcenter with alot of large inflatables.

A fun time was had by all. Little Miss Audrey had extra fun hiding from the camera, but I snuck a few shots in here and there.

We had an Audrey approved dinner tonight of chicken tacos and then went through the sing/candle birthday ritual again. Candle bottoms don't melt in rice krispie treats.

Happy Birthday, sweet girl! Check out old birthday pics of Audrey here
