After dinner Bud opened his gifts. Auntie Art took the photos so I could feed Edith. Thanks, Auntie Art!
Bud loves to crack jokes about my choice of boxes. Here he is pretending to be thrilled at receiving a box of crackers:
Luckily, the boom box elicited the hoped-for reaction from this music lover:
Then it was time for cake and ice cream, of course. Once again we had Bud's favorite; lime yogurt cake (which I neglected to sprinkle with powdered sugar or place the cars on) and cherry chocolate chip ice cream. The neighbor also brought over a blue and orange frosted chocolate cake. Thanks neighbor!
I really could do an entire post just on the process of Bud blowing out the candles. He definitely should get points for style, but it did take him a while. The fact that one candle (not even a trick candle!) kept relighting didn't help him accomplish his task (I took the photos this time).
Okay, another go.
And watch the hair!
If he can just get that pesky red candle out, he'll be okay to move on to the next cake.
Okay here we go.
No, wait. That red candle re-lit itself again. Pesky.
Time to give it another go, Bud.
That must've done it. Just one more cake to go.
About 10 more blows later and....
... DONE! Happy Birthday, Bud! We love you!
