Bubble Birthday Party

This weekend we celebrated Happy Vee's 3rd Birthday with a Bubble Party.  He was thrilled!  Every day for the last couple of weeks he would ask about his "party with friends".  The birthday presents and the sweets were nice, but more importantly, he was excited to have a big playdate with his favorite friends and family.
