A Shared Birthday Party

Today was my youngest son’s birthday party (he turns 3 on the 29th). We had planned a few fun things to do in our backyard and had a few of his friends over, with their families. We had a blast.

I got a surprise, too. My wife had wanted to do a cake for me as a surprise, but didn’t know when she would be able to since I’m home a lot more these days. So a friend offered to bake it and bring it to the party. So my son got a tractor cake and I got a red velvet cake, complete with all 30 candles. πŸ™‚

It was a great addition to be able to “share” the party with my son. I thought I might share a couple of the pictures from the festivities; unfortunately I don’t have a video of me accidentally blowing out most of the candles. I was trying to “shoe” a bee away from the cakes and forgot that the candles were lit. It must be that old age settling in.

My birthday cake in all its glory.

The birthday boys. πŸ™‚

Wes’ birthday cake. My wife made it (without a mold) and a friend decorated it.

My birthday mask. Even the adults participated in the events/games.

Part of the obstacle course.

Just how many people does it take to light 30 candles?
