Neverending 5th birthday

Eddie has been turning 5 for like three weeks. We celebrated with Joel's parents after our vacation...

This is Lucy's "NOT FAIR!" face:

His Superman cake, which I must admit I whipped out of thin air in about 1 hour, PHEW:
My parents came up for a visit, and I didn't get any pictures, because I stink.
His Actual birthday, March 7 (just the 4 of us):
Friends party at Wooddale Fun Zone last night (check out my sweaty son; and how much does Evie look like Carol!?):
I have to say, he has chosen some REALLY cool friends.
I also want to highly recommend Wooddale Fun Zone for kids' bday parties. They have a great deal on Wed nights because they're only open for 2 hours (but really, who needs a party to go longer than that?). The kids got to play in the indoor playground, and skate, and got dinner, dessert, and prizes, and I didn't have to do ANYthing.
The Gronaustein Bears and Too Much Birthday
Just kidding; he's been an absolute darling through the whole convoluted affair.

Well, duh... Evie is ADORABLE! :) I didn't even know you were back in the blogosphere. Just happened to stop by! And I can vouch for the fact that Eddie's bday party was definitely one of my kids' favorites, so far.

I am almost embarrassed to tell you, it was so easy. I baked a cake mix using square 8" or 9" pans -- then cut off one corner. Voila: Superman shape!

WHAT!??! Who is this Julie!??! Ohhh, I know, Julie Witt signed in on my computer when they were here last weekend. Hilarious. OK back to Meg.

OK good to be me again.
