Birthday Weekend....

What a fun, action packed weekend we had. Friday night was the family birthday party. Colton picked burgers and a cake made with oreos, mint ice cream, fudge and cool-whip - yum! Here's the birthday boy waiting for Mike to light all the candles.
His grandparents surprised him with the Joe Mauer quick swing for his gift. We couldn't even get it off the deck before he was hitting balls.

The next morning he was out swinging the bat right away!

For his kid party, he opted for a dirt bike birthday cake - complete with doughnut holes for large boulders and coca puffs for rocks.

Sunday afternoon was spent at the pool. I had no clue how much energy eight 8-year old boys have!

After two hours of swimming, these boys devoured the cake!

Leah, you are so darn talented with those cakes! If you lived a little closer, I'd be hiring you as my cake lady every July!! That is way cool, as well as that swing that he got. He looks like he had an awesome day. You and Mike are such fun parents!
