Six years ago this little guy came and changed our lives forever. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.So for this year I wanted it to be as simple as possible since I didn’t know what my schedule was going to be like. Sure enough I got another project but luckily I was able to squeeze in Evan’s boys-only Spy themed birthday party.
I saw a photo of this cake on the internet and I knew I had to make it. What I didn’t know was the amount of butter and egg (whites only) I needed. I was nervous at the possibility of flopping because what a waste of ingredients it would be.
The pre-packaged ice cream in a cone was such a hit with his classmates that I got hugs from probably 8 students. Even the teachers (his class has 2 teacher assistants) loved it saying the size was just perfect for the kids. I guess the poor children are tired of the usual cupcakes. I’ve seen a lot of them wasted, with just the frosting being eaten, that I knew I had to bring something different.
After school, I took him to his swim class, then to the comic books store where he got to pick 2, then to our favorite nearby restaurant. We capped his special day with a visit to the beach (the above photo was taken around 7:45pm). I asked him why he was taking his comic book to the beach. He told me, he just wanted to read and relax.
