Yet another birthday party

Before I show you all of the fun things DD did today, I wanted to share a couple of photos. As I mentioned before, I am taking a cake decorating course. Last time we met for a class, I learned how to make royal icing. To be honest, I was really prepared not to like it. Then, when we tried our hands at it in class, I totally changed my mind. I had tons of royal icing left over from the class and I was not too sure what to do with it. In any case, I decided to make little Micky Mouse royal icings (once they are dried, you can store them for up to 6 months in an air tight container). Anyhow, I made these yesterday so they still look a little wet. It will take about a week for them to be complete dried. I made them in blue, purple and pink. I will put them on top of cupcakes I am making for DD's birthday party.
Here's the birds I made in class. Ok, I did not make the bird on top (my teacher made it). I made one just like it, but it broke when I was storing them away.
Now, onto the important stuff. We went over to Angela's house for Jackson's first birthday. Amazingly enough, it was not raining today so the kids got to play outside. Hooray!
At some point, DD thought it was a great idea to ride on top of the car as Leila pushed it around.
Some kids stayed inside and some where playing outside. Basically, there were kids everywhere!
Katie wanted to ride on top of the car too and she asked Leila to push. Leila was not at all interested in pushing 2 girls around, lol!
The birthday boy! Got to love that face! Yummy!
DD and Leila enjoying the yummy cupcakes Angela made.

We had a wonderful time at the birthday party. The kids got to have fun with their friends, and the adults got to catch up and chat. It was great!
