Will's birthday!

Will's actual birthday was Wednesday. He'd already had his party, but we still wanted to celebrate his special day with him so we went to Shedd Aquarium. It was Will's first time going to an aquarium, and he had a great time!

He really liked looking at all the different fish and things, although I think his favorite parts were the submarine play area for kids, and the penguin climbing area that had a slide and tunnels - we had to literally drag him away from these areas:)

We stopped and ate lunch and watched these huge dolphins and beluga whales swim right by us - this was my favorite part.

Shedd Aquarium is right next to Soldier Field, the Field Museum and Adler Planetarium and they are all right on the lake in downtown Chicago. It's really beautiful.

We had a VERY tired little boy when we left the Aquarium. He couldn't make it home before falling asleep!

We were still making his birthday cake when he woke up from his nap, so he got to lick the spoon!

He also got to sample the homemade ice cream early...

We grilled hotdogs and corn and also made watermelon tomato salad for dinner.

Will showing me how old he is now!

We gave him Mickey and a scooter for his birthday. He'd seen Cousin Otto's Mickey in St. Simons and LOVED it! And he is getting the hang of the scooter and likes it too!

Mickey riding the scooter too!

I think he had a really fun birthday! I love my little 3 year old!!
