Combine a sunny Saturday, a back yard, some cousins, uncles, aunts and grandparents, good food, a jug of sangria, a barbecue and a Big Birthday Boy, and what do you get?A Back Yard Party, that's what!
YoungerSon and the Bride invited the family to celebrate Isaac's third birthday.
What kind of birthday cake would you like, Isaac? With no hesitation he said A BLUE CAR!
So that's what Auntie J made for him, with a green one thrown in for good measure. Mmmm... Oreo cookie wheels. And candy tail lights. But the icing didn't like the heat.... we should have left it in the fridge.... and suffered a partial meltdown, but it tasted good anyway.
Isaac had no complaints.
He blew all three candles out with some timely help from his cousin Callum. There's something very enticing about blowing candles out, no matter whose birthday it is.
Isaac pronounced the cake "very yummy".
Callum was in complete agreement.
After all, these boys are experienced cakeologists.... they know a good birthday cake when they taste one.
The cake soon disappeared, leaving a couple of cute faces smeared with blue icing.
Then they started on the chocolate chip cookies.
Good cake work, Auntie J!
And what do you think they would like for their birthdays? I'll give you three guesses. That's right.... Hair!
