We always celebrate the kids birthdays together and yesterday was Payton's day. We had everyone over for lunch where the kids made English Muffin Pizzas and I made a great pasta and veggie dish for the moms. After lunch, the kids played, the moms had tea and eventually we had cake.
Payton, being so oblivious to gender specific things, picked a pink cake. (I love that he doesn't identify things as "boy" things or "girl" things. I don't want him to think he can't do something because it's too girlie OR that a girl can't do something because it's for boys.) So we had funfetti cake with strawberry frosting with sprinkles. He loved it.
Payton had really wanted to go bowling, so after everyone had their cake, we loaded up. He bowled an amazing 36, with bumpers of course. He was upset that Rose (and everyone else) beat him, but I promised we'd go back soon so he could practice and get better.
After bowling, everyone went home. We came back to our house and cleaned up a bit and then played and had dinner. Later we went to the Y and I had an amazing workout in a Japanese Swordfighting Class I've registered for. Came home, and everyone went to bed. Apparently somewhere along the line, I forgot to put the cake away. This is what I found this morning after I finished in the bathroom...
It's amazing how fast he climbed onto the table and start in on it!!
