Gavin's 7th Bday
So I finally got around to celebrating Gavin's bday. Because our apartment is so small, he was only allowed to invite a couple of friends. Of course he invited Nathan, because they are inseparable. And then he invited Tawney because she and Nathan are inseparable. Each kid came with their families, so in all we had 5 adults, and 6 kids in our little place. It got a little loud, and I'm sure our downstairs neighbor wasn't too thrilled, but it was super fun. We got to hang out with adults, which doesn't happen to often. And the cake turned out okay. Gavin and Kaya have been listening to a lot of Weird Al, so Gavin wanted a Jurassic Park cake inspired by the song. Luckily, I have made a similar cake in the past, so it was pretty easy. Except, my mixer went capoot and I had to mix frosting by hand. That was a little painful. There was quite a bit of leftover cake, but as you can see, we had some help with that. part. I went into the kitchen afterwords and found the dinosaurs taking care of that part for us.
I was happy to find other adults in San Antonio who also think that it's super lame that the kids can't wear their Halloween costumes to school, that parents can't make any treats to bring in, we have to buy cupcakes at the store, and that the entire system in general is a bit lame and overprotective for no apparent reason. Plus, we found some other adults who like playing video games as much as we do. Case in point... Angel playing Rock Band 2 for Wii. Turns out if you know how to play REAL drums the little fake ones are a lot easier to play... Even if you have a 4 year old on your lap.
