Birthday, Beach, and Brotherhood

My Sweet Blessing has turned three!!!! Last week Jack turned 3 and we had a great party to celebrate. Jack loved all of his friends coming over and getting to take cupcakes to school. Seriously, I cannot believe it has been 3 years. We have hardly know anything but life with Jack ( we got preggo with him 1.5 months after we got married ) and I can't imagine it any other way. He is such a gift and we love him so very much!!
His special gift from us was a little Trek bicycle. He has been wanting a bike ever since me and Brendan dusted ours off to start riding again. I'm kinda a bike snob so I couldn't hang with a spiderman bike... although he probably would have gotten more excited about that. Hope he likes riding as much as I do!
After his birthday we headed south for a little vacationing. We spent a couple days at The Grand Point Clear. It was AMAZING!!! I would highly suggest you visit there if you ever get a chance- It reminded me of a sandals resort. I loved it so much that we will be heading back in a month to celebrate our anniversary. Next, we headed for Gulf Shores for the week. Jack LOVED playing in the sand and Collins loved napping, so it worked well. It was such a great vacation and I am feeling refreshed!
In other news... Collins is getting into everything!! Its so funny to see him get after Jack's toys. No matter where you put him, he will find his way to the toys. Jack's not sure what to think about this. One thing is for sure... they are establishing a strong brotherhood. I love it!! We prayed when we were pregnant with Collins that the boys would have a strong bond, so its exciting to see that root being established.
Well, I have a ton of pics to share....
Thanks for looking,
