mmm...cake

As I mentioned, we had a little party for G-man on his actual birthday that included just JQ, G-man and I. I think these pictures (again, I'll spare you the majority of the plethora of pictures I actually shot) tell a nice story of our afternoon together.

JQ reads G-man his card. We each wrote a short note inside for our little guy.

In an effort to save paper, we wrapped our presents in an ever-so-classy beach towel.
G-man didn't mind—it was like peek-a-boo with gifts!

Checking out the Megablocks

Scoping out the Frog Pod. Which is awesome, btw.

We had fish tenders and tater tots for dinner.
G-man dips his tot in ketchup...

...and then wipes the ketchup all over the tray.

This time around he gets the butter yellow cake with the chocolate frosting.
A tiny taste with one finger...

Giving both hands a chance to get dirty...

Smashing it everywhere—cake on one side, frosting on the other.

Shoving it into his mouth

Next stop, the bathtub.

dawn—We all had fun!

vp—Isn't he so delicious? That is one of my favorite shots from his birthday. That mischevious smile. He is just beaming. Man, I love that kid.

christina—I was tired of picking up all the toys and running them along the window sill in the shower. I had been eyeing that frog pod forever. It's huge but so cool.

brandy—We were using it like a waterfall the other day.

lynda—Hell, what's any birthday without a mess?
