It floored me as time really does go so quickly. When time goes quickly you also celebrate a lot of birthdays, including one more for Eric just yesterday.
His parents came into town last week to celebrate with us. Their visit began a little shaky, what with Ryder throwing up the day before, but thankfully there were no more really exciting 'events' while they were here.
My mother-in-law sewed some secret projects with the kids, we played games and we ate out a lot.

I decided I would make Eric a three-layer round cake... but then I got a little lazy and didn't trim the top layer quite flat enough. When I decided I wanted to fix it and tried to pull the top layer off, it took a big chunk of the second layer out. I quickly put it back down and decided I would just frost it and call it good. Unfortunately that missing chunk led to a little crack, and then a big crack. I told Eric I made him a California cake, it was quite the seismic event!

It was still yummy though and the kids filled up on yummy meat and ice-cream, just in time so we could go home and eat cake. (Birthdays are dangerous I have decided!)
It was a great weekend and I look forward to celebrating many more birthdays with the love of my life.
