Parker's birthday party was yesterday, the first in the new house. It was nice to have a lot more room for guests and activities. There was plenty fo space for food and drinks, theme appropriately fo course!
On the menu:
"Seaweed" Wraps: Green tortilla turkey and cheese wraps
Sword skewered fruit and veggies
Cannonballs: Fiery (sweet and spicy) and Smoky (BBQ)
Spinach and arrrtichoke dip
For time's sake the decorations and entertainment were pretty sparse this year. The kids had fun playing, the adults had fun chatting, and the food was loved by all.
I made a pirate ship cake, named in honor of the birthday boy. I had a lot of fun with this one and I think it turned out great. It was also my first time making chocolate cake from scratch and it was amazing! Super moist, even a couple days later.
Parker had a huge smile on his face and was so excited when we started singing.
It was a great evening celebrating with friends. Happy Birthday Parker!
