Arianna turned 3 yesterday. Asked what kind of cake she wanted, she insisted she wanted "monkey cupcakes". So Donald made cupcakes and decorated two with little monkeys, and the rest with "bananas". Of course they were delicious because he makes the best cupcakes and cream cheese frosting in the whole world!
Just beginning to open her presents:
Initially she wore a new birthday dress and princess hat, but I see in other pictures she changed her clothes. I think this is a real "kick-ass" pose:
With 3 of my siblings, we make up the left side of our family. The other 4 brothers weren't able to be here, so we solved the world's problems ourselves!
We had a delicious lunch that included hamburgers, fresh corn on the cob, bbq'd ribs (I brought some home with me) and other wonderful dishes.
One more day of blessedly cool weather, but Tuesday will start the climb into the 80's and eventually the 90's. My favorite seasons are spring, autumn, and winter, in that order, and leave summer out of it.
DON'T MISS HIS SENSE OF HUMOR
