Instead, Colt tossed out the idea of catching a local bluegrass festival we've always enjoyed going to-- 3 Sister's Bluegrass Festival in downtown Chattanooga.
It just so happens 3 Sisters takes place the first weekend of October every year-- so Wyatt's birthday party is always the same weekend it seems.
I thought it was a great idea.

Here are some photos of the day!

|Wyatt and pretty-much-his-favorite-person, cousin Colby. Oh, and a ninja sword. Because you need that at a bluegrass festival.|
|Steel Drivers, great band!|
|Wyatt clapping after a performance. I wish I had this on video, as he kept screaming, "Woohoo! HOORAY!"|
Overall, it was a great celebration for the little guy. I was even thankful that the day before, on his actual birthday, we got to spend the day together without lots of people. We hit up a donut shop, took photos out on the Battlefield, had lunch with Colt, did a bit of shopping, and then went home and made cupcakes together.
Great day with a great little boy.
...who is growing up WAY TOO FAST.
