Fifth Birthday Party

Lucas enjoyed having six friends over on April 29th to celebrate his fifth birthday. The party was three hours long. We played on the new play structure, organized an impromptu game of “baseball,” beat up a pinata, ate cake and icecream, and generally behaved as silly as possible. The mommies and daddies of Lucas’s school buddies trusted us with their kids and split. It was loads of fun after tons of work. The healthy carrot cake I made from scratch out of the Waldorf-friendly Birthday book pretty much sucked, but it was pretty and the kids didn’t seem to notice. Lucas was sufficiently impressed by the decorations, which included a hotwheel race car and a trophy, that he later bragged about his birthday cake.

See no evil. Hear no evil. Speak no evil.

“Mmmmm. Carrots,” says Arwen.
