Birthday Candles

My birthday came and went again this year (May 23). There were a few unique aspects to the day, however. One of them was that I managed to prank myself accidentally. I’m the one doing the grocery runs so when I bought candles to stock up I didn’t pay attention too closely and ended up with a small supply of trick candles.

Oops.

Another unique happening this time around was that my probably future daughter-in-law is the one to make the cake. Redflare had her hands full with little Potato (he’s hiding in the background on this picture held by Little Miss) so she went on a baking adventure after volunteering as tribute.

I had a boxed cake ready to go, but she accepted the challenge and defeated it masterfully.

Also featured on my lap but barely in the frame would be Fireball. I think her sippy is more in frame than she is, but you can see a sweet little chunky arm.

Mario Karting and some D&D board gaming filled a majority of the day when I wasn’t grilling. I’m not quite sure the picture order messed up a bit, but oh well.

Daughters

I’m pretty sure this picture was taken on Mother’s Day and so there’s likely a ‘sons’ picture somewhere. This one came from RedFlare’s phone so maybe it’s just a matter of me not being sent it yet.

So the picture is a bit late, but at least we can admire them all together here and hope that in ten years they’ll gather and awkwardly recreate this one together.

Birthday Selfie

One of my favorite things about grilling is the kids coming in and out to eagerly check on me and the food.

I know it’s partially because they’re hungry and they’re eager to eat, but they share anecdotes about what they’ve been up to inside, dance, or just chill with me between meat checks and flips.

Birthday Rainbow Road Racing

Off to the races again! For this last birthday racing video I actually merged the two clips to see how that turns out. It was great racing with so many real people in Mario Kart. I think my favorite bit is probably poor Superman and how he ended up crossing the finish line. You can sort of see it on the first half but at the very end you can see it from a different angle.
