Twiz shared his first birthday with our family today. Actually they started their partying on Friday by going out to Wendover on the "Fun Bus" with Teach's work friends. They mostly just wanted to get away and that seemed like a good way to do it. We got to watch their puppy, Abigail, until they picked her up in the wee hours of the morning.
Then on Saturday, Teach gave Twiz a fishing pole as a birthday gift and the two of them hit five lakes/rivers without catching a single fish. Teach spent most of her time sitting in the car where it was warm while Twiz braved the cold and tossed line after disappointing line.
They had planned to camp out on Saturday night, but it was too cold. Once again we were up for puppy-sitting and Abigail had lots of fun playing with the kids, especially Drama Queen. Her voice sounds just enough like Teach's voice that the poor little doggie was completely confused!
And finally, we had a party tonight with the family. My sweetie spent hours making his first ice cream cakes and I'm sorry I didn't get you a pic after he put on the cute whipped cream and raspberries on the heart-shaped one. They were starting to melt and I was just focused on getting them served. All were a huge hit and I'm guessing that my cake-making days are over and everyone will be requesting ice cream cakes from now on.
We ended up the evening watching Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. I had never seen the Donny Osmond version and the video was great although I would imagine seeing that show live back in the day was absolutely amazing.
And how was your weekend?
