We began our day at the Safari Park, where my little Birthday Boy was for some odd reason very timid and wouldn’t ride anything! For lunch my sister and I took the kids to Joe’s Crab Shack because we thought the kids would enjoy the playground. It was a perfect, slightly chilly Texas day! The waiter came out with Mexican hats and a costume which Little Jason would not put on, but he did have fun doing the Mexican Hat Dance with the other kids.
I brought them home and put the kids down for a quiet time while I prepared things for his simple party. He is very sporadic with his eating so after much deliberation on what to cook for his favorite meal, I went with sopa. I figured since the girls had requested it for their birthdays then he would at least think it was special!
I had trouble with the cake. In my haste I failed to put the two sides together that are matched so icing it became a problem. Oh well, I just slapped it on there the best I could. I have yet to make a shaped cake for a birthday. I could probably pull off an easy one, but the thought of the kids requesting shapes for every birthday sends me back to making a basic round cake! Hey, it still tastes good!
Oh and remember how I went to the store to buy his candle and came home with a number 1? I never did make it back to the store so I looked through my stash hoping to find three stray candles. Lo and behold I found this number 3 candle! Somehow in my subconscious I must have known it was there! Ha ha!
