Jack’s 3rd birthday

We generally keep the kids’ birthdays as relatively low-key affairs, so much so that I apparently didn’t take many photos at Jack’s 3rd birthday. However, you can take my word for it that Jack had a group of friends over to enjoy cupcakes together (expertly made by Mama, replete with Jack’s obsession du jour; Cars) and then we headed off to go and play at an arcade / play structure.
