Well I couldn't decide what pictures to post so obviously I posted a lot of them. Masaru was really excited and when he woke up we let him open one present before church. It was the Tiger umbrella. He loved it as his cousins have a lady bug one and it's a huge fight everytime. Then Dru and I decided to get ready for church and when we came out saw that Masaru had opened his other presents, a pig light and a rash guard for swimming!! Well we couldn't tell him off, it was his birthday. So we all just laughed and took pictures of it. He loved the pig torch because his cousins have ones in Utah that he always wants to use. So now he has his own!! After church we had the party and everyone came over for it. He got a spiderman car and tracksuit from Delwyn and Anita, Huge massive silver car from Sarah and Chad (ah by the way thanks for that guys cause now we have to figure out how to take it home), 3 DVD's, Thomas the Tank Engine singlet and shorts and chocolate from Grandma (NZ), $20 from Grandma (USA), PJ's that you can draw on and everytime they go in the wash come out clean again and you can draw on them again, from Leslie and Ryan, $20 from Auntie Maree and some more tools from mum and dad. Dru tried to make him a tool belt but mum's sewing machine broke and so he only got as far as to make the holster part for the drill. So that can be finished some other time. I think it'll be awesome. And he got a Thomas the Tank Engine cake from mum and dad. Man I"m telling you that cake was the horror!! We started it and it looked horrible and we thought it wasn't going to turn out at all. I didn't put the beginning pic's on here for you to see. If I did you'd notice how awful it looked. But with some different coloured icing and some handy dandy work I think we pulled it off alright. It was MASSIVE!!! Like about a foot and a half long. I was amazing. Everyone was laughing at it because of it's size including me and Dru. All fun though and everyone got as much cake as they wanted and still had enough to take home for the next days lunch!!
All and all it was a good time and Masaru was very spoiled. We're extremely grateful for everyone's presents and kindness towards Masaru.
With the money we got from Grandma (USA) and Auntie Maree we're putting it towards a scooter and a bike. Masaru loves riding around on scooters and we feel he's ready to learn how to ride a bike with no trainer wheels. Wonderful day and great birthday. I can't believe my little man is 3 already. I remember giving birth to him and him being so little. Time really does fly when you're having fun doesn't it?!
