A few weeks ago, we asked August for a little party planning input.
“What kind of birthday party do you want, August? Cars?”
So construction equipment it was.
Decorating the table involved gathering all of his construction toys and raiding Eleanor’s train table for Playmobil landscapes and trees. I thought it looked cute. Brandon took one look at the scene I was creating and said “it’s like the Lorax, told from the other side.” We had confirmation when Eleanor grabbed an excavator, made crashing noises, and started ripping out trees from the plastic earth.
Construction birthday party! Take that, nature!
The table decorations only lasted about five minutes anyway. Too tempting for little hands to resist.
Credit for the amazing cake goes to Brandon’s sister, Portia, and Reuter’s Bakery. I think the little “rocks” are cocoa pebbles, and the big rock formations were made of cake.
Happy birthday, little man. We love you lots.
