Birthday Gift Exchange

Ethan is finally at the age where he really enjoys special occasions...probably because he thoroughly enjoys the art of opening gifts!  ;)  So naturally, when we were invited to be part of a gift exchange, we didn't hesitate to participate!

Ethan received a gift from the adorable Maddie of Just Another Day in Paradise and was super excited to open it!

Ethan loves jelly snacks so this was definitely a good start!

Ethan also loves anything and everything tractors, so this Chug, Chug Tractor book was a big hit!  Ethan especially loved the sounds when he opened a flap to reveal a surprise.

Finally, since we saw Finding Dory on Ethan's birthday, it only seemed appropriate that we were gifted this adorable Finding Dory watercolor book set...Ethan loves it!

Thanks so much to Maddie {and Charlie!} for our gift!  And a special thanks to Liz for setting this up!  To see the rest of the gift exchange {and get some fun gift ideas!}, check out the rest of the participants below:
