The day before George’s birthday, we drove to Cross City, Florida to meet my parents. They took my three older boys for the week, and I brought my brother home to stay with me. I decided to bring a birthday cake and celebrate.
I don’t have a cake carrier, so I made do with what I did have on hand.
Along the way, we saw some Hobbit holes for sale.
I was planning to have a parking lot party at a local fast food restaurant, but my mother, who is much smarter than I am, asked the ladies behind the counter if there were any local parks. This was a much better idea.
After the kids played for a bit, we sang, we helped George blow out his candle, and we ate a delicious lemon cake with a raspberry filling.
My parents gave him a John Deere Duplo toy tractor. Because every little boy needs a John Deere.
No pictures of my dad, alas.
But here’s a picture of my brother enjoying my pool.
