We celebrated Henry’s third birthday in much the same way we celebrated last year, with a party at the local playground in Washington Market Park. This year Henry was able to celebrate with his grand-dad too.

Henry’s grandfather, Paw Paw Butch came in from New Orleans yesterday to visit and celebrate Henry’s birthday on Saturday and his own on Sunday. Today they rode the SeaGlass Carousel in Battery Park before taking the Staten Island Ferry and returning home to have pre-birthday bear cake (as specifically requested by Henry) and play some more.

Henry got an unexpected gift to go with his boots and complete his cowboy look. Paw Paw Butch sent this horse in the mail and Henry named him Jimmy.
More highlights from Henry’s and my trip to Wyoming are seen in this photo gallery. Henry was able to visit most people in my family and everyone really enjoyed seeing him again, especially since he got really sick last time we visited (before he was one year’s old).
