A Birthday at Our House

Hubby had a birthday.  There is no one in the world that I would rather celebrate!  This guy isn’t just a funny, nice guy–he’s my best friend and an inspiring, cute, silly, fun, responsible, committed dad.  Very hands on.  Totally amazing in a crisis!  (For instance, gently coaxing a certain 4 year old to open his mouth for the dentist). 

So while my in-laws played with the kids, we celebrated #32 with an afternoon date to a nearby history center and sports museum.  We ended with a late lunch at one of our favorite restaurants.  We love to do things as a family, but those couple of hours of hand-holding and quiet chatting did our souls some real good.

Then we headed back home for cake with both sets of parents and our boys. The cake was yummy but a bit…stiff?  I’m not sure what happened.  I used a recipe that I’ve used three times with excellent results.  The icing was my first attempt at a buttercream (chocolate in this case).  I loved the icing, but the cake itself had a very odd texture.  No matter…the birthday boy enjoyed it, and that’s what matters.
