Momma Bear’s Birthday

Donna’s birthday is always on 4/13 and it wasn’t any different this year.  The thing that’s different is that we’re all runnin’ around doin’ stuff so it was hard gettin’ all together on a weeknight.  HOWEVER, we lucked out.  Jack’s class that normally gets out after 10PM on Mondays finished early and so Jack came home…. and bonus… he came home bearing an especially fun present from his… not Facebook official…. girlfriend, Kalika.

She made a stunning cake for the occasion.  Now then when we first saw it it looked like just a normal (and now a little lopsided, thanks to all the handling it took to get it to our house) cake.  BUT… when we cut into it… SURPRISE!  … Absolutely unbelievable… my first thought of course was that she stacked all these little cubes into a cylinder… but that was probably not right.  After that it was fun trying to figure out how she did it.

Anyway, it was a lot of fun and pretty much stole the show.  That’s okay cuz all our gifts were a little on the weak side anyway.

Thank you Kalika… Yer the best!

 

Spencer’s 21st Birthday

Spencer turned 21 on Saturday (10/11/14).  How crazy is that?  Both our boys are over 21 now.

We celebrated as a family that evening.  And I, of course couldn’t resist the urge to record the event for posterity.  Spencer was a sport which made it fun.

We took him to the liquor store on Graham Hill Road for his first legal alcohol purchase, then had dinner at El Jardin’s in Santa Cruz.  Spence had the chimichanga… his usual.  Donna and I were a bit over-served so had to rely on Jack to drive us home.
