Okay, for Sawyer's birthday, his ACTUAL birth day, the DAY he turned four, he and I met up with two of my girlfriends and their kiddos @ Red Robin. Cuteness abounds:
Here are all the kiddos with their balloons. Little boy on the right-- spitting image of his daddy, and what a ham in these pictures! Those kids loved those balloons. Sawyer didn't want to take pictures though.
Okay, Sawyer asked for lemon cake for his birthday. That is NOT chunky elmer's glue on top of it. It's lemon glaze, and it was good. So...there.
Ridgey didn't feel well...but he's still cute!
Okay, both boys woke up at the hospital on their birthday. Both boys were greeted with a birthday sign from the nurses. Here is Ridge's. I told you, I forgot to take pictures of Sawyer's stuff on his birthday. I know, Loooooooooooo-ser.
These are some of our loooovely nurses! All were present to celebrate Sir Ridge's first birthday. I'm showcasing some of his bday stuff here bc I never did an adequate party post for him. And now I'm too tired to find all those pictures again. So he has LOTS of pictures but gets less of a showcase than Sawyer did up above....anyway, we love these girls!
In between Ridge and Sawyer's birthdays, we had a joint party, which ALSO happened at the hospital. Here's how it went down. CAMO. These are camo cupcakes. They looked way less glamorous when finished. I iced them with vanilla bean buttercream and dark chocolate buttercream. The cake looked like green mold after they were baked. And I wasn't overall impressed with the recipe. But I could've eaten twelve bowls of that icing.
Here's a shot of some of the decorations. I have more, but again, too tired to mess with that right now. It was cute. And a lot of people came to the party. And we got way too many presents! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOYS!
side note, only bc I said I'd post more here...here are a couple other shots of those swaddlers if you are wanting to see how they work.
