That is pretty much what we’ve been up to lately! PARTY and Baseball games!
My little man turned 6 on April 13th! I can’t believe it. He’s like… a kid. I don’t have babies or toddlers anymore. And I’m so proud of him too! He’s such an adorable, sweet and wonderful kid of course!
So we celebrated BAKUGAN style! After finishing a long brick, I hurry home to immediately shower and greet 6 of Cooper and Gracie’s friends to head to the bowling alley!
Isn't he cute!! :)
Gracie bowling "Gracie" style!
That was Cooper’s request! A Bakugan party at the bowling alley. So we had a total of 8 kids. We played 2 bowling games, ate pizza and ate a Bakugan cake that I had made. I used the mold that you can use to decorate baseballs or basketballs, etc. Figured a Bakugan could work as well. It is honestly nothing exciting. They always look so much better in my head! Ha!
The kids had a lot of fun though and then we came home to open presents and send everyone home to hurry to bed before the Easter Bunny came hopping by!
He was a very good Bunny to all of us!
Of course we finished the day with an Egg hunt.
Back to school from a relatively relaxing Spring Break on Monday, and I forget the cupcakes for his ACTUAL birthday!
So, I said no worries. I’ll bring them in on Tuesday. Worked out anyways as he wanted the “grocery store style” cupcakes! You know, the ones with the air brushing and little decorative rings on it and such. And since Publix was closed on Easter, I wouldn’t have been able to get them anyways. So I went to pick some up Monday evening for Tuesday and they STILL don’t have any! Birthday cupcakes are apparently a second priority to all of the Easter baking they do and they hadn’t gotten caught back up yet. So I placed an order, and even got the opportunity to customize them and agreed to pick them up first thing this morning at 7am right before I headed to work. (BTW… I’ve been teaching at Cooper’s school lately, so I was kind of on a tight schedule!) Well, after having paid for them and my BODC of course, I’m holding the 24 cupcakes when the lid to the Diet Coke collapses causing the drink to spill all over the place and 12 of the cupcakes to go crashing to the floor! Standing there almost in tears, the very nice manager of Publix assures me not to worry as they can fix them in like 10 min. Well, I didn’t have even 10 min. So, he went WAY over and beyond and actually offered to bring them to school for me. It’s only like 3 min away, but still. I was like, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! And cupcake catastrophe was diverted!
Good thing as it turned out very nicely!!
