I hired a local cake person to make an R2D2 birthday cake. When I told people there would be an R2D2 cake, they assumed it was a sheet cake with R2D2 on top. You are so sad this is not your birthday cake:
As if the party were not enough excitement, the pool also opened this weekend. We've already been three times, including one time with cocktails. And Jon and I have finally hit the holy grail of pool time with kids - we don't HAVE to get in. Which is good because it is freaking COLD right now. And I would hate for my delicious cocktail to get warm.
As if a party and the pool were not enough excitement, grandma Roxane was in town to play with the boys, take them to movies, cook us meals, and generally have fun. We could not get the boys to ever take a good picture together with her, but maybe this is a good age to start letting them take individual shots.
All in all, the birthday weekend was a smashing success.
Except that my babies are FIVE?!?!?!?!?!
