Birthday party #1

This past Friday the boys had a joint party. The days of joint parties may be coming to an end, so we savored this one. They jumped on the inflatables and enjoyed cake and presents. We usually host all of their birthday parties at our house. This year my husband made the call to hand over the responsibility and I appreciated his wisdom in managing our time well. Still, we had to do our annual cake decorating. We really enjoy staying up late the night before the party and making their cakes. This year, the boys drew out their designs on paper...the pressure! This Indian* Jones theme was so fun!

My cousin Photoshopped their names off of the cake. This one was Toot's cake. He wanted the bridge scene. My husband made the bridge with pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks and hot glue.

This is the cave scence when the boulder falls and rolls towards Indian* Jones. We used a train hill, lego torches, plastic spiders and rock candy for the decorations.
