Happy 5th Birthday Cole!
I apologize for the delay in this post but having back-to-back parties at our house is not conducive to getting much else done around here. The good news is that both parties were a success and I did manage to take a few pictures to prove it.
I ordered a cupcake-cake for Cole's birthday party from my awesome cake lady, Christy. She is a small business owner and she did such a great job on Hannah's castle cake. I knew Cole wanted a Transformer-rific birthday party, but I was concerned about translating Transformers (or specifically Optimus Prime - Cole's favorite Transformer) onto the cake. I was pleasantly surprised with the result. Not bad huh?
Two words of caution if you ever plan on doing a bubblewrap walk at your next birthday party. 1) Do not let the birthday boy go first 2) Make sure that the children's shoes have some texture to them - otherwise the flatness of their shoes will evenly distribute their body weight and NOT POP A SINGLE BUBBLE. - Just a tip from your Aunt Kimmie.
Cole got a bike for his birthday - but his favorite presents by far were all of the cool Transformers toys that he received from friends and family.
