Once again, Daddy went all out on the theme cake - and his cake decorating skills are getting quite good with all of the practice. Much less cursing this year! The cake, per Luke's request, was chocolate
On the day of the party, Luke helped Mommy give Harper her bath, and decided that he should "take pictures for Grammy. I think she would like to see pictures of Chooch's bath." Um, OK
Then he decided to take self-portraits
And some still lifes (still lives?)
Finally! It was PARTY TIME.
Luke and his friend, Sophie-Anne, mingled over JBs, salt dough shapes, and markers
Luke and Zoe's mom had a chat, too
And a few of the kids had fun being firefighters
Some riff raff wandered in
A rousing game of "stick the helmet on the fire dog" was enjoyed
And the kids made their own fun
Look out, Max!
Candle blowing outing high 5!
Luke and his besties eat cake
Harper made a brief appearance between naps
The art table was popular, too
And finally, after it was all over, Luke was pooped! This was after his post-party meltdown because the party was over wherein we had to trick him into NOT going to bed at 6pm per his tearful demands.
It's going to be hard to top this when he turns 4!
