His big sister knows him so well. She suggested that I put some of his favorite things to play with on his cake. "You know, Mom. The remote, Dad's phone, the salt and pepper shakers, gumballs." She's a brilliant little 8 year old. So I did. She's my official cake consultant from now on. The best part. I get to decide the flavor. CHOCOLATE with cookies and cream filling.
So after he opened each gift and played with it for 15 minutes before opening the next, we finally ate this delicious cake:
Happy birthday, little dude! You sure are fun.
