Happy Birthday, Benjamin!!

Benjamin officially turned 6 on Sunday. We started the morning with his breakfast request of banana boats. It's a banana sliced lengthwise with yogurt, various fruits and granola on top. It seems to be becoming a birthday tradition ... the kids love getting to make their own.

The middle of the day was church (which is why we did most of our celebrating on Saturday), but I did make his request of Enchiladas for dinner. Then we had cake and ice cream. And I don't mean to brag (too much) but the cake turned out pretty good. He requested an Indiana Jones cake and he was not disappointed with the result. And not only did it look good, it tasted great. I think it is the best overall so far. I seem to be improving with each birthday. (The pressure is on for Bry's upcoming bday!)

I thought it looked cool with the candles lit.

Make a wish!
Fun day ... Fun boy. Happy Birthday, Benjamin!

Is Rehn praying over the cake ;) I am so impressed with your cake decorating skills! I love Chevy's I wish I could have come to dinner with Benjamin for his birthday. I think I ate at chevys almost monthly during my pregnancy.

Wow - how did you do that? What a great looking cake. By the way how did the kids get this big?

That cake is VERY impressive - did you use a stencil or something? If that was freehand, you should consider working as an artist!

I need to learn from your cake-decorating skills. I'm way impressed! Seriously - how about a tutorial during family vacation this year? Think about it. . . P.S. We still need to play Ticket to Ride. Let's plan a night!
