We had a wonderful time on Saturday with Nik’s family as we celebrated not just Ellie’s birthday but also the three other birthdays (Nik’s, Nikki’s, and mine) that we have in late September/early October.
We had lots of fun racing and swinging
and eating crabs.
The main event was, of course, blowing out our candles and eating cake. I made my favorite carrot cake*: a big square cake for all of us and a little round one for Ellie.
Then we blew out our candles:
And then we dug in! Ellie didn’t want to stop even for a picture!
We also had fun opening our presents. Cousin Alex was very kind to help Ellie open all of her presents.
All in all, it was a great day – for Ellie and for all of us!
*That carrot cake recipe post was my 3rd blog post, ever. 🙂
