Evan's 7th Birthday Party

We had Evan's 7th birthday party this weekend at his Aunt Toni and Uncle Tim's house in Irwin, PA, which is about an hour from our house. Evan originally requested a dinosaur cake, which I didn't think I could pull off, so I steered him in the direction of a volcano cake. This was SO much fun to make....even Alec got into the action. Evan loved the final product. Thank you, Jessica, for the wonderful cake was a hit!
We even were able to find a number 7 sparkler candle to put on top of the really finished off the volcano cake.
After homemade pizza (thank you very, very much to Tim and Toni), cake and ice cream and presents, we headed to Boyce Park for snowtubing. Below are the friends, Connor and McKenna, that Evan invited along with family. (Side note, Connor and McKenna are the children of Darrell's best friend from school!)
Although Alec wasn't big enough to go snowtubing, he enjoyed running around and eating the snow. Thanks to Aunt JoAnne for running after him all afternoon!
Evan's actual birthday is on Tuesday, February 19....but nothing will top his birthday party this past weekend!

I just LOVE the picture of him with his cake! His expression is wonderful! Great job on the cake, it sounds like he had a fantastic 'pre'birthday celebration!
