Hank's Birthday Wrap-Up

Phase one of birthday week is over. In some ways it's really nice to have two kids so close together to have one week of cake baking and cooking and also because they can share their family party (this coming weekend) but in others it's a pain (same reasons; cake baking, etc.),

Hank had a fun day Saturday. He had a soccer game, he went to the park with Joe and played baseball for a few hours, Joe took the three older kids to see Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and in the evening we all made our own mini-pizzas (the birthday boy's request).

Hank's request for Boston Creme Cake is always enjoyable because we all love how it tastes, but from an esthetic standpoint I never love how it looks. I know, I know. Not important. Hank was very happy with his cake.

He then opened a Matchbox car from Madeleine and a small rubber band propelled airplane from Elisabeth. Again, Joe and I will wait with Hank's present until this weekend when we're up in Door County with grandparents (and others).

Does anyone want some cake? Between Elisabeth and Hank's birthdays this past week we're swimming in lots of delicious cake!

How was the movie?

Happy Birthday Hank!

The movie was described (by the kids) as good, not great. I never got a chance to ask Joe b/c by the time the kids stopped talking about it I forgot to ask. Obviously, it deviated from the book quite a bit.

Shall I save you some or are you guys ready for a field trip. ;)
