My sister made an amazing Goofy puzzle cake! Everyone was in awe, and if she'd have lived nearby and had had business cards, Chrissy probably would have a thriving party cake business on her hands!
After 45 minutes on the playground, Collin spotted the cake. He was dismayed to hear everyone had to eat lunch before he could cut into it. So ~ he sat by it and waited ...
Kevin grilled up burgers and hot dogs and served a picnic feast!
Natalie, Uncle Jared, Aunt Janae, MaryJane (Blossom Buddy) and Mom Clara (my hair magician) enjoy O's antics!
Goofy as ever, O played peek-a-boo with his plate while waiting for his hot dog!
Grandpa C gives O a boost.
Taylor and MaryJane join in the games!

Mom and Owen
Tuckered, Owen passed out on Uncle Jared's shoulder after finishing his cake.
Mike and Nancy gave Collin his first kite, and all gift-opening was halted as the kids buoyed for a turn to fly it.
How perfect! I spy with my "little eye" a boy with his first magnifying glass!
A true believer in "snail" mail, Collin thoroughly enjoyed opening each and every birthday card! He'd never received so much "mail" at one time! I was thrilled to see how many of the kids had decorated or created their own cards for Collin's birthday!
We had a fantastic time! Thank you to everyone who was able to share in our special occasion!
