We now have a five year old in the house. I can hardly believe it. Five feels big, really big.
I think we managed a pretty spectacular day to usher it in. The highlight was ten kids spending three hours at a mini golf/ playzone center. By the time we got home, I was very ready for a nap! (Which, sadly, I did not get.)
The party was a bit of a Angry Bird/Pirate Mash up (hey maybe I've just thought of the next Angry Birds edition: Angry Bird Pirates!)
I went to Pinterest for help with
My own effort ended up looking like this:
The whole ship only took one 9 x 13 cake. This source page of the pin had some great simple pictures to follow. It wasn't a quick endeavour but that is likely the fault of the cook (who, word has it, is pretty rubbish at icing cut ends of cake).
I also threw together some cupcakes to make sure there would be enough cake for everyone.
Monkey loved it. He was so proud of his pirate/angry bird cake. His smile was all that mattered to me, but as an added bonus, it was pretty yummy too.
Five. I just can't believe it.
