Wild Man Turns 11!

As of yesterday, Wild Man is 11 years old.  I can hardly believe it.  Why, it just seems like yesterday that he was a tiny little baby who wanted to eat every two hours and snuggle up the rest of the time.  Well, the snuggling sure hasn’t changed!

SANY1519 His birthday this year started with a breakfast of scrambled eggs and bacon, courtesy of Mr. Math Tutor.  After breakfast, Wild Man opened his present from Grams and Grandpa which was some new Legos, and his present from me, Mr. Math Tutor, and Rosie Girl, which was Mario Cart for Wii.  The rest of the day was spent largely playing Wii and Lego!

SANY1508 A friend came over in the evening to stay the night.  We had 40 Cloves and a Chicken with French bread for dinner (one of Wild Man’s favorites).  Rosie Girl had baked the cake earlier in the day, and I decorated it after dinner according to Wild Man’s specific directions.

The boys slept downstairs (although I’m not sure how much sleep they actually got).  At SANY1515_edited11am, another friend came over and the “real” party started.  The boys played Wii bowling and Mario Cart until lunchtime when they filled themselves up with Little Caesar’s pizza.  After pizza, they went to the bowling alley for some real bowling and to work off the big lunch they had eaten.

SANY1518 Then, it was time for cake and presents.  Wild Man blew out his candles and everyone got to enjoy his baseball cake.  Then he opened his presents from his friends.  After all that, Mr. Math Tutor took the other two boys home.  While Mr. Math Tutor and Wild Man were driving back here, Wild Man fell asleep in the car.  Talk about a long day!

Actually, it's Alton Brown's recipe.
