Luke hit the big 9! He absolutely could not decide what kind of cake he wanted this year, and I was about to design the most random, bizarre Reddit-worthy cake in the entire world, but I caved and just ended up making a giant Lego. Pinterest gets all the credit for how this came together. And the Florida humidity gets all the credit for how the frosting starting sliding off the cake :)
The day before on his actual birthday, we went to the beach. My superior planning skills allowed him to open a present while we were there and, huzzah! It was paddle ball! Which Luke is actually quite good at!
My planning skills also forced me to bring along a gourmet Publix cupcake for Luke to enjoy at the beach. Which turned out to be quite a babysitting adventure. That little cupcake was better supervised than my children.
And totally delicious.
