Let them eat ..... CAKE! Or not ...... :)

Happy Monday!!
I hope your weekend was as fun as mine! We are wrapping up the 2 week long (yes, that's TWO WEEKS!) of birthday celebrations for my little son, who turned 5 and it was quite the "big deal" for him. He has been looking forward to 5 since he turned 4, so it's been a LONG year, lol! His final birthday bash was Saturday at a play place with 22 little 4 & 5 year olds (plus my 3 "tweenageers") and we ended up ordering the wrong size cake -- we had cake, then some more cake, and lots more cake! (UgH! Most of you know I avoid sugar, but let them eat cake, right?!)

This was the pre-cake. I can only show this one since all the party pics have everyone else's kids ...... so to be safe, here is the cake he picked, ROFL!
I honestly was torn between letting them stuff themselves into oblivion and tossing the cake, then had a brain storm. So like all good moms, I cut the cake into big ol chunks and brought the box into the back yard. That got a few looks from the kids ....... until I decided to do what all proper moms would do and ..........
Throw the first glob of frosting!
FOOD FIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
We had an absolute blast! They were covered from head to toe and it was MESSY!! But what is life if you don't enjoy it and make it fun along the way :) Even our dog got in on the fun and was wandering thru the grass eating it rather than get out of the way - check out her lovely matted fur in shades of white, yellow & blue! Ruh-Roh! My WAV photo didn't work via upload, it's pretty funny watching this "live" lol but here are few stills ..... including my "SAFE!" captured picture ..... positively shameless, I tell ya.
Blessings to all!
