ASTRONAUT THEMED THIRD BIRTHDAY

ASTRONAUT THEMED THIRD BIRTHDAY

This little kiddo turned 3 last week, and his obsession with Astronauts and Space were all I needed to pick a theme for his third birthday party and run with it. If you’re anything like me, you love looking at the details of people’s parties and sneaking a peek at the way other people decorate, so let’s get started with this cake…

HIKING GROTTO CREEK CANYON

HIKING GROTTO CREEK CANYON

I love it inside Grotto Canyon, I think it's incredibly gorgeous (and shady, depending on what time of day you go!).  The rocky footing can be a little trickier for the kids than a plain path, but it's also way more fun for them to climb their way through, jumping their way across the creek over and over again.  Who am I kidding?  I found it really fun too!

FAIRVIEW LOOKOUT HIKE {HIKING WITH KIDS AT LAKE LOUISE}

Our best family memories seem to be made when we spend some time outdoors together, and nothing makes the kids feel more accomplished than when they complete a hike.  I always make sure to make a big deal of it and point out how proud they feel of themselves and how proud I am of them, building in those positive feelings around outdoor adventures.

2018 STAMPEDE ADVENTURES

I love taking video now and then in addition to all of the pictures I take, because the point of all of it for me is to be able to look back and remember the way their faces moved, the way they talked, the excitement in their eyes, what a stud their Dad is and how much he loves them.
