Saturday, September 19, 2009

Rowan turned 3 years old on September 9th, but since that was in the middle of an extremely busy work-week, we waited until the weekend of the 19th to have his friends over for a blowout party.

Rowan helped get things ready as we prepared for guests to arrive.

We've had non-stop rain the past week, but thankfully, the let up for a day, and our backyard was filled with the sounds of laughter and play.

One of Rowan's birthday presents was a pirate-ship sandbox, and since the party coincidentally fell on International Talk Like A Pirate Day, we went for a full-on pirate theme.

"Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you."

Even the birthday cake was a pirate ship!

It was a sweet treat seeing Harper and Anna Wyatt.

The ladies chilled out on the patio while the guys gathered in the living room for some SEC football...

...and the kids eventually got into just about everything in Rowan's room...including the crib. First it was Lucas...

...and then Rowan...

...and finally Harper.

Looks like it's time to retire the crib.

We haven't made many connections here in Oxford yet, so it was great to have our good friends make the trip from Starkville (Bill, Susan, Harper and Anna Wyatt) and Tupelo (Emily, Todd and Lucas; Tracye, Bart and Daniel; Jonathan, Niki and Ansley). Arrrrrr, mateys!
