Happy Birthday Julie

Yesterday was Julie's Birthday! Bennett and Pres were very excited to wish their mommy a big happy birthday but they may have been slightly more excited about the potential for birthday cake. Both were so excited about singing and blowing out the candles that dinner was quite the struggle.

We celebrated the big occassion with a strawberry cake from Edgar's. For those of you who haven't had this cake, the cake and icing are both made with real strawberries (the icing has actual strawberry chunks and is pretty darn good). Following dinner we put 5 candles on Julie's cake (for some reason 5 is Bennett's favorite number) and we all sang happy birthday.

Prior to slicing into the cake the kids got to lick the icing off of the candles. As you can see by the last picture below (see the candle on the right) one of our kids (who shall remain un-named) got a little carried away... All-in-all we had a great time.

Julie does such a great job with this blog but rarely takes the time to brag on on behalf of Bennett and Pres, I wanted to wish mommy a very happy birthday and let her know how much we love her. Love, Steve
