Jack is 4 years old!
On his actual birthday, we took him and his best friend Callie to Chuck E Cheese. We had a grand time, and had this awesome little photo/drawing taken there. They are seriously the cutest. We should probably just start planning their wedding now. All of Jack's plans always include Callie. When we were looking at vans, he would say "That's where callie will sit" and when we were looking at bunk beds it was "that's where callie will sleep." It's adorable.
We celebrated it a bit more today. Jack's birthday requests were as follows: Darth Vader cake, watermelon cupcakes, and Thomas the Train Piñata. We decided to top it all off with a giant fort in the living room.
Here is the watermelon cupcake (it's a box mix at Walmart and yes, it does taste like watermelon)
(The candle flames are the same color as the candle. What will they think of next?)
Here is the giant fort. To give you an idea, there are 9 kids inside of it. We got these cool building pieces from a consignment sale this weekend.
And here is the Darth Vader cake. It's the first time I've worked with fondant. I think it turned out pretty good. You can actually tell what it is supposed to be. (Jack insisted in making this pose for the picture).
And here is the Thomas the Train piñata. What a way to top off a 4 year old birthday.
