Of course it was celebrated in the obligatory tradition of a three or more day festival that both our little one's birthdays seem to have become! It's tiring for a Mama....but really I don't mind because it's so much fun and the joy it brings is worth much more......plus traditions are so so good aren't they?
So running with tradition our Bam woke to balloons scattered throughout, pretty homemade birthday bunting hanging across the ceiling (it's the bunting that hangs, as Kyle says, when you know there is something to be celebrated) and his birthday crown to wear at his choosing....for the second time.
And there was cake to be baked....chocolate cake of course....to be eaten with homemade lasagna for a dinner filled with all the birthday boys favourite things that night.
The festival continued with a small party and bbq in the park on Sunday followed by wheelie driving and scooting, paper plane flying, attempts at kite flying, swimming and paddling......and cake number two!
A late night chocolate collaboration between Mama and Papa of his very very favourite *person*. (which we found inspiration and instruction for here!)
Tell me do you not love Wall-e too?
That solitary hard working little robot who re uses and re purposes all amount of goodies, falls in love and saves the planet too?
Yes we do love Wall-e here...thanks to Bam....
and it turns out he's not bad to eat in cake form either once you figure out just how to go about it.
Hmm maybe if you just go straight in for a bite?
