When Tyler came down from his room this morning I gave him a big hug and wished him a very, very happy birthday. He replied to me that “I’m a boy and I’m three.” Indeed Tyler, indeed. Tyler had a great day today. He had preschool and got to bring cupcakes for the other kids. He loves preschool. I ducked out of work early and we all met for a dinner of his choosing at Yum!. Tyler picked a big bowl of mac-n-cheese as always, and an even bigger cookie to celebrate his birthday.

We finished the day with presents at home and the whole family watching Misty Island Rescue, his favorite Thomas movie.
I asked him before bed if he had a great birthday he he said “Yes Dad.” How great to be three!
Lately Tyler has taken to sitting down at the iMac, logging in on the guest account, starting a Safari which takes him to Apple’s website. He then watches video after promotional video.
It’s now totally common to hear Jony Ives saying “aluminium” at random intervals.
Today I got to take Tyler to Berry Patch for pre-school to attend Dads and Donuts day! Tyler was super excited for Dad to come to school with him. We played with Play-Doh while everyone arrived. We then went in and talked to Fireman Tom from the Edina Fire Department. Tyler was sitting up front and volunteered to come up front and try on a fire fighter suit! He was so excited!
He got to stand in fireman boots:
Put on a fireman jacket!
And a real fireman helmet!
After our talk with Fireman Tom we went out front and got to see a ladder truck up close! Tyler posed with Ms. Anita for a picture in front of the truck.
He even got to drive it!
We finished with a delicious donut with another fire truck on the table!
Today is my Mom’s 60th Birthday! Happy Birthday Mom! If my Mom is any indicator, 60 is the new 30! :-)
To mark the day we get family together at the Minneapolis Photo Center and I took a ton of family photos for everyone. It was a really fun evening with great images to remember the day with.
They were out of the small kids chocolate chip cookies at Yum! tonight. Tyler didn’t seem to mind! I’m pretty sure it was bigger than his head.
And to answer the obvious question? He ate it all, minus a couple of bites he shared with Dad!
Tyler and I visited Choo Choo Bob’s today and somehow this happened.
We all had fun playing in the creek tonight after dinner.
