Parker turns THREE!!!

My sweet little baby turned into a 3 year old monster last month. I honestly can't believe how fast three years went by. I swear when my friends and brothers went on 2 year missions it seemed like twice as long as it's taken Parker to be alive for 3 years. He was so cute on his big day. It actually lasted 3 days. We had to "trick" him and tell him his birthday was on Sunday, when it really was on Monday. So he had presents on both of those days, and then another party on Tuesday with my family. Spoilded rotten, but totally worth it.

Jared and I gave Parker a Spiderman bike! He's not really that great at riding it. Even with the training wheels. He keeps putting on the brakes instead of pushing forward. I realized that I really don't have any patience when I was trying to teach him how to ride it. I'm sure this is only the beginning.

I I made a yummy 3 layer cake for the adults. The kids had to have cupcakes.
My nephew Hayden's birthday is 2 days after Parker's. So we had another joint party for them. Whew.
Little Freeman just liked to play with the tissue paper.
Parker scored on the Ninja turtles. He told everyone that's what he wanted, and that's what he got.
My friend Emily and her husband don't have kids of their own yet, so they spoil Parker rotten! This is Nate playing Ninja's with little P.

His nursery lesson was on honesty. I felt guilty for telling him that it was his birthday when it really wasn't. So I did the right thing and told him the truth. He didn't care. As long as he still got presents and birthday cake.

His Nanna's birthday is 2 days before his so we had a joint party for them.
All the Bowcutt cousins.

I can't believe Parker is 3--which means Carsen will be 3 soon too..(Does that mean we are over the "terrible twos?")

Fun pictures....GO BYU!

I hadn't read your blog in a while. So fun to catch up and see your cute family. 3 is a big deal! The time really does fly. Tell Jared I said hi. We want to have a big party in December (I know it's a busy time) when Janet is in town. We'll be in touch with details.
