Emersyn's Third Birthday!

On Sunday, August 28th, my sweet daughter turned THREE years old! I can hardly believe it!!! I can hardly believe that five days prior, I gave birth to her baby brother. I'm glad their birthdays are at least a few days apart and we can spread out the celebration a bit. :)

Sunday was a special day for our family because not only was it Emersyn's birthday, it was our first Sunday at church as a family of four! After church we headed to Oaks Park, a local amusement park in Portland for our church picnic! It was pretty warm that afternoon but the picnic was shaded and we thought it would be a fun way to spend Emersyn's birthday afternoon!

Everett wore a super cute outfit that I bought him from Gymboree, one of the few things I've actually bought him since we've been so blessed with hand me downs!!

Since it was her birthday, I let her have an orange pop. She was THRILLED!! (Don't judge me Caitlin!!!) :)

I could just eat this face up!!!

Snuggling with Miss Rachelle! P.S. Rachelle, your hair is super cute in this picture!

Ems got her rides bracelet and she's ready to have some fun!

Grandpa hung out in the shade with Everett so Mommy and Daddy could have fun watching Ems on the rides!

She LOVED this ride!! It went really high up, my stomach was in knots!!

Pushing baby brother, her new favorite thing to do!

After the picnic and rides we headed home for a bit and then went back out to the Old Spaghetti Factory for a family dinner with both sets of Emersyn's grandparents, her cousins, my brother and his wife, and Brett's sister.


Family of four!

We had such a fun day with our sweet girl. I cannot believe how quickly she is growing up and I am so so blessed to be her mama!!
