It felt like we spent almost the entire month of March celebrating Tucker’s 3rd birthday and yet here I am, mid-April, finally getting this post done. I’m still in denial that my baby boy is THREE already. How did that even happen? It’s been such an adventure watching him grow into the funny, cuddly, crazy little character that he is today.
We celebrated Tucker’s birthday earlier in the month since our cousins in Detroit also have March birthdays. The boys enjoyed a sleepover with their cousins (although little sleep was actually had) and we celebrated with a cake for all the March birthdays. As you can see by the fork, Tucker couldn’t wait to dig in as Savannah waited patiently to blow out the candles.
Tucker and his cousin Gannon had a bit too much fun at the sleepover and both ended up covered in purple marker that apparently wasn’t that washable.
The next day we all spent the day at Splash Village, the largest indoor waterpark in Michigan. The kids had a blast! Mikey loved swimming in the lazy river and Tucker could not get enough of the giant tube water slides. We must have taken him down them at least 30 times that day. The boy truly lives for new adventures and thrills.
Needless to say, the waterpark was a hit and completely wore both boys out, which provided Kevin and I a nice quiet drive home and plenty of time to catch up on Black Mirror on Netflix. Can I also just say the headphones he’s wearing was one of the best $20 we’ve ever spent. Long car rides are so much better when each of the boys can listen to their own tablets and Kevin and I don’t have to listen to either of them.
Later in the month, on Tucker’s actual birthday, the 28th, Kevin’s sister, and her family came up to visit us for a couple days. It was so nice having family here to celebrate Tucker on his special day.
We spent the day of his birthday at Get Air the trampoline park. The had so fun bouncing around with their cousins. We finished the day with homemade lasagna and another birthday cake of course.

Some of Tucker’s answers both surprised me and made me laugh out loud, especially about wanting to grow up to be Cat in the Hat. When I was his age I told my mom I wanted to be Fred Flintstone when I grew up. I love to hear he’s dreaming big like his Mama. 😂
