Although we all had a wonderful time celebrating Nicky’s birthday, I was a little disappointed at the shots I got of the day. In my defense, it is a new camera and I haven’t had much time to get the feel of a new camera.
Irregardless, Carrie made and decorated the cake. This was her first time decorating a cake by herself. She used to help me decorate, but I never actually let her do it herself. I told her that I would guide her and show her, but that now it was time that she learned. She was more than happy to do just that and said that it was a lot of fun. For years I wouldn’t think of having anyone take over for me. Now, I am just about ready to relinquish the crown and the scepter chef’s hat and the wooden spoon. Well, maybe share it a little.
We had hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, macaroni salad, chili con carne, cheese and crackers, and a relish tray. Tom bought them a small pool to play in and the boys were fighting over the one pail we had so I gave them each a plastic coffee can to play with. Just as I was pointing the camera, Nicky feel flat on his “culo” and got really angry about it. I didn’t know he was going to sit, as the chair wasn’t even near the table. As you can see, he didn’t realize it either. Poor little guy!
