Emma and Jake's Birthday Party

***UPDATED*** see below

Yeah, I know it was a little early, but their birthday is in the middle of this week and who wants to throw a party the day before Easter? Not us. It was a lot of fun and the good Lord blessed us with a beautiful day, even though the weathermen called for rain. I should have known.
Here are some pictures from the day.

Cake batter ice cream layered with red velvet cake and sprinkles and covered with rich butercream icing and Kit Kats. YUMMM!

Emma's new trick - "oy oy oy"

Fun with Elefun

Ummm, what do I do with this?

Like this? Turns out, Jake is a very neat cake eater - not much of a mess at all.

Looks good, but...

who the hell put peas in this cake?


A short update.
As you may know, Emma is walking, well running, really, and Jake refuses to even stand most of the time. He will, however, hold on to things and push them while walking behind. So they got these 2 little push/ride-on motorcycles for their birthday that they have not been able to get enough of. Thanks Aunt Chris!

Emma thought it a good idea to get on Jake's and let him push her. He started speeding along, not watching where he was going...

Emma bailed and took off as fast as she could in the other direction.

Smart girl. Jake crashed.
