So we finally had Sebastian’s birthday party & it went rather well for our first big outdoor extravaganza at the new house. Yes, Sebastian’s birthday is January 31st, but we postponed the big fiesta ’til now for various reasons. Last year we were in Uruguay for his 5th birthday and although we had a great little celebration with all the cousins, aunts, uncles, etc. at the beach he really missed his party w/ all his buddies at home. I had promised throughout the year we would have a big party for him when he turned 6 so as the good mother that I am I couldn’t break his heart on this one. BUT in January we had just laid down the new sod & there was no way we could have any sort of equipment on it or wild children trampling all over it. The weather was also very uncooperative this winter with too much rain so it wouldn’t have been an easy task anyway. consequently, I struck a deal with Sebi, the master negotiator, to postpone the big party a few months when the weather was better & he had a small sleepover around his birthDAY. remember that fun time? You can read about it here & more on his birthday here. So after 38 transformer invitations were mailed & delivered we ended up with about 40 kids jumping and running and eating snow cones & cake. good times! The snow cones were a big hit, but the cake was truly a work of art. My girlfriend Jennifer Hoffman is a pastry chef and she did not disappoint:
The kids thought it was the coolest thing, and it was. This would be Bumblebee from the movie Transformers for those of you who only have girls in your life. Sebastian had the choice between Optimus Prime and Bumblee and here you see his preference. The movie is really worth seeing for those of you that have not had the privilege. Anyway, I think the kids had fun & I would say our backyard has officially been broken in. Sebastian (in the middle in the white tee) is holding the Bumblebee Jennifer gave him. it was her model to make the cake & Sebastian could NOT wait to get his hands on it. Thank you Jen!
Happy 6th birthday sebastian AGAIN (and for the last time) ! We love you!
