We lucked out and the weather was absolutely gorgeous! So gorgeous that if it were up to the Munchkin I don't think he would have ever come back inside the house! I also did some cookie baking, of both the basic chocolate chip and of the unusual varieties. We also ate birthday ice cream cake. And a lot of it. The photo above is what Brett's birthday cake looked like before we dove right in. No, I didn't make it. No, I didn't pick out the design. This was all Brett's doing. He's an odd one. Odd as fish. We love Dairy Queen ice cream cakes and are always looking for an opportunity to get one. So when deciding on what kind of birthday cake we should have it was so beyond obvious what that choice was going to be. I didn't think about the cake decorations at all, I was more about the cake. So I left it up to Brett to choose what he wanted, it was his birthday after all. There's no meaning behind this cake, aside from the fact that Brett thought that the squirrel was pretty funny looking. Then when asked if he wanted anything written on the cake, he got the brilliant idea of "I like your nuts". Again, there's no meaning or story behind this (I would've chosen "Happy Birthday" or something like that, but I guess I'm boring), Brett just thought it was pretty darn hilarious. I'm just glad that the cake was pretty darn yummy.
