Just a Bit More Birthday

My sister and brother in law were in town a few weeks ago for a magic convention so we decided to have Jonathan's family birthday party at the same time. Laura LOVES to lavish Jonathan with super nice gifts. This year, it was a Ford F-150 Power Wheel. Needless to say, he LOVED it. It certainly doesn't hurt that my dad, one of Jonathan's idols, has a similar truck. It's a Chevy, but Jonathan does not know the difference. You can see Laura and Todd in the background of the second picture.

Jonathan is totally emulating me in this one. I wish I could blame this on someone else...

I said that I would make the Pablo cake again for the family party, but it was a huge pain in the you-know-what to make, so the bug cupcakes made a re-appearance. Since Jonathan did not see the first batch, he marveled at my creativity :)

Jonathan's cousin, Aiden, was more than happy to help him open presents:

And Todd was more than happy to put on a magic show. Podiatry is his trade by day, but his real passion is magic and he is GOOD!

Unless you ask my Mom's chihuahua, Abby:

Seriously, though, a good time was had by all!

I want a Power Wheels truck! I love the shot where's he talking on the phone. I must confess, I do that, too...and then I scream at other drivers, "Put down your phone and drive!"

Jonathan is such a cutie, and he has a such a big smile!

That truck is the sort of thing I always wanted to get for Kory when he was younger ... what a lucky kid!
