birthday weekend!

this weekend was all about matthias. we had a great time celebrating him and his big three years.

birthday pictures!!
on saturday, hiba, matthias, lizzie, and i drove to clarksville to meet up with my parents for a birthday party. clarksville is pretty much halfway between siloam and little rock, so it's a great meeting point for me and my parents.

we started out at the clarksville bowling alley. for anyone who has every been to or driven through clarksville, the bowling alley is pretty much everything you might imagine it to be (or not to be...). but, matthias had fun and loved that it was all about his birthday party.

watching the slowest bowl in the history of ever
yay! we knocked some down!!
but, disappointed we didn't get it in the gutter....
matthias didn't really get the point. oh well. he had fun.
after a riveting bowling game, we headed over to sparda park since the rain was holding off for some cupcakes and presents. there was the added bonus of the pirate ship park, which was a hit once matthias was fully assured that he would in fact get cupcakes even if he did play on the playground first.

pirate playground!
birthday cupcakes!
makin' a wish!
birthday boy!
cupcake face!
hiba's "cupcake face".

followed by church, a long nap, and then a great visit with some wonderful friends who were in town for the day to pack up their house as have moved to texas. the perea kids were some of hiba's best friends, so it was a super special treat to be able to see them again.
