What a Great Day!

Marissa's Birthday was such a special day and we all had a great time. Aside from her being a little naughty by refusing to take a nap, she was an angel and had a constant smile on her face.

After her non-nap, we pulled out her first present: a brand new Radio Flyer tricycle that has a handle on the back for us to push her.

Jeremy worked hard to put it together Friday night after Marissa was in bed:

Marissa, pre-three wheeled surprise...

... and after!

Mmmmmm, pretty dress! Thanks Auntie Chelle and Uncle Nate!

My Pretty Pony and Elmo book from Katie and Kaden. She also got a Sesame Street sticker book from them too (no pics). Thanks guys!

Cruisin' around the neighborhood

Can you tell who is on the cake? Great job Uncle Nate!

Not a happy face, but she finally tolerated it without looking like we were torturing her!

She got her own basket of fries to lick! She was in heaven!

What a great birthday! I love how you can steer the bike with that handle. Lots of great presents!

Wow! Three years old! She was really enjoying her day. Man, I wish when you all were little we had a push handle for the back of the trike...would've saved a lot of backaches leaning down to push..lol. And the cake is very impressive Nate! You're very creative! Wonderful video...especially the ending...added a nice touch. Happy Birthday again little Marissa! Lots of hugs & kisses from Nana & PaPa
