Today is Luke's third birthday. We have all been looking forward to today, including Luke, of course. Unfortunately the only thing he really understands about birthdays is that we eat cake. "What are you going to do on your birthday?" people ask him. He replies with, "Eat cake!"
With that in mind, I figured I had better make a pretty awesome birthday cake for Luke's birthday. Cake decorating is not really my forte, but luckily for me I found out last week that a former student of mine, Cahara, is starting a baking career. So I commissioned her with her first assignment - a car-themed little boy's birthday cake. I was totally thrilled with what she came up with! Didn't it turn out adorable?
When Luke came into the kitchen this morning and saw his cake, he jumped up and down, shouting, "My cake has cars and a road! My cake has cars and a road!!!" So I guess it was a success.
Next it was off to the pool for a swimming party with Luke's two best buds. The boys had a great time, and the moms enjoyed having someone to talk to at the pool for a change.
Then everyone headed over to our house to eat lunch, and, of course, cake!
Yes, even the little tykes (like adorable Grayson) got to join in the festivities.
Okay, its cake time!
Here is Luke attempting to hold up only three fingers (to show that he is three years old). Apparently we should have practiced this ahead of time.
There we go.
In the evening, we finished off the day with dinner, a few presents, and of course, more cake. Happy birthday, little man. I'm so thankful for you!
