It was my son’s ninth birthday this last week. It worked out really well, because we wound up babysitting one of his friends that day, so he had sort of an all-day party.
I baked marble cupcakes with chocolate frosting, which were a big hit.
Look at all those smiling faces!
And a little fat baby.
We have birthdays in March, April, and May, so spring has been dubbed “birthday season”. As if his birthday wasn’t enough fun, one of the neighbor kids had a birthday this weekend, too. So we sat outside, ate barbecue and a Minecraft cake. The adults talked and talked and the kids played and played. It was very pleasant and fun.
