Ben's birthday was this last Friday, and we celebrated it on Saturday with a little birthday party. We invited a few friends and let the insanity ensue:) Ben had a blast and seemed to enjoy every minute of it. The first picture is after the tornado of present opening had finally relented. In the second picture, Ben and his friend Alex enjoy playing in a Thomas the Train playhut from Grandma Betty. It was a big hit, as was the kaleidoscope from our friend Matt. Matt also gave Ben a Gumby, which we had to coax Ben to put down when it was time for bed. The last picture is of Ben and his friend Hunter as they eat the birthday cupcakes. I found a cool bundt cake pan in the shape of classic cars. The cake is chocolate beet--a recipe I adapted from one found online. Everyone loved it and didn't seem to mind that it might be good for them.
