We have been very busy celebrating birthdays and stuff and I just haven’t seen the time to sit down and blog. So this is catch-up time.
We celebrated Julian’s EIGHTH birthday the end of March. I can’t believe he’s eight! I know I say that every year, but I still can’t believe it. He had friends over and we took them to Tunnel Voyage for an afternoon of adventure and they had a great time.
Here’s a funny story. ..
I asked Julian for about a week before his birthday what sort of cake he wanted. Did he want cupcakes or a big cake, what flavor, what kind of icing, and did he want a “theme”. He deliberated for a while and then told me he wanted chocolate cupcakes with some white and some pink icing with sprinkles. So that is what we made. However the night of his party he didn’t want any cake! (Therefore no candle blowing pics!) I kept offering them to him for a few days with leftovers but he never wanted one. I was puzzled.
A few days later I asked him why he never had any of his birthday cake. He said “Well…I don’t really like cake that well and I just thought those kind would be a great treat for everyone else!” Awwww….
So I told him that next year on his birthday I want him to pick whatever sort of dessert he wants. He couldn’t believe that. “You mean any kind of dessert?” I told him it could be brownies or cake or ice cream cake or pie…
“PIE!! I want PUMPKIN PIE!”
Yup, pumpkin pie! I just thought that was sooo funny. I didn’t even know he liked pumpkin pie. So when Tom’s birthday rolled around and Tom ordered his Pie (he never orders cake either) I got Julian a pumpkin pie.
Here’s a picture of the big birthday boy. We celebrated his birthday with friends on Friday evening and then Sunday we went out with my parents to Outback. That is where this picture was taken. It was a fun weekend!
