I like to make a cool cake for the kids' birthdays. For Lil' E's 1st Birthday a friend and I made a 3-D Alligator and Frog. This year for Doble's Birthday I made a 3-D Squirt from Finding Nemo and a Star Fish. It took me forever to finish it (good thing I made it the day before). Doble got to dig into the Star Fish while the rest of us ate the Turtle. He really didn't want to eat it and we had to really force it on him. I think he was still full from all the gummy worms and not feeling too good from being outside in the hot sun all day. But we did get some really good pictures.
Mommy's Masterpiece (8 hours of hard work)
Doble has been practicing his blowing skills for the past couple of weeks. A few days ago he got really good at it, but when it came time to blow out his candle on the cake he got a little nervous and we had to call in the old pro. No worries, Big Brother Lil' E came to his rescue and got the job done.
Hurry get a picture in before the mess begins.
He needed a little help starting.
Well he needed a little more help than we thought he would. He really didn't want to eat it. Who has to force their kid to eat cake and frosting?!
Okay maybe I can handle this stuff.
Or maybe not!
Let's try some icecream.
It's my cake stay away balloons.
Here Baby Brother, I brought you some balloons to go with your cake.
Yeah he is finally enjoying it.
Mmm...This stuff is starting to taste good.
After messy birthday cake you have to get a bath. We didn't want to fill the whole tub so we figured the sink would do.
He probably drank more water than he ate of Birthday cake.
Okay I am done with the cake, I am done with the bath, now get me out of here and put me to bed.
Maybe next year Lil' E will want to try out the rides. We are going to try out the rides at Enchanted Village in June. We go every year and he really likes the kiddie rides, but the carnival doesn't have the cool little kiddie rides.

Lil' E loves to go really high. He really is having fun in this pic. He looks upset that Doble is in the hammock with him, but he is actually laughing.
Ahh...kisses for the little brother. They really do try to get along.
