For Adelaide’s ninth birthday, we had a wild animal party with her friends.
There was (pretty awesome) face painting.
Adelaide and I made an ice cream cake at her request. We used this recipe. She wanted it to look like a bear face, but I didn’t feel good about cutting up a bear face (plus, I wasn’t sure if I could make it look like a bear and not a round-faced cat). So I convinced her to make it a safari cake instead.Here’s a rare sighting of me. The candles were hard to light.My wild bunch. Happy birthday to yooooou…Make a wish!Now everybody grab a tiny animal. Present time!A doll gardening set from Soren (she’s the giraffe behind the box).
