Look who's 7!


We celebrated my middle son's seventh birthday yesterday...


He wanted to spend his birthday afternoon at the park with a few friends and my homemade (read: ugly!) vegan chocolate cake. Nothing fancy. Nothing Halloween-ish. (Although we did bob for apples, 'cause that's just good fall fun.)


Having a birthday two days before a popular holiday has its challenges. October is so full of activities, and my energy wanes toward the end of it, so I always feel like I haven't made a big enough deal about the birthday.

But he thought it was just right. Simple, sweet, and fun.

That's my boy. Getting so grown up.

I'm just glad there was some of that ugly cake left when I got home from work, l.o.l! It was yummy. I'm glad Papa and I got to help celebrate with him.
