Aaron's birthday was the day before we left for the beach, so our celebration was pretty low key. We went to a local Italian restaurant and came home for cake and presents.
Our meal was delicious, the kids were well-behaved, and our server took this great pic of the four of us.
Charlie fell asleep on the way home, but SG was excited to have some of Aaron's cake that she helped to bake!
I have been seeing these checkerboard cakes on Pinterest and Facebook and wanted to give it a try. The kids each helped bake the layers and I did the putting together! The cake was yummy and festive!
