Lincoln's 7th Birthday: How To Train Your Dragon

Lincoln's Seventh Birthday

Well, Jenn and I are now the parents of a 7 year old. Funny, 'cause all of the other parents of 7 year olds seem much older than we feel. What's up with that?

In addition to the amazing cake (Chocolate Velvet w/ Cream Cheese Buttercream on the top, Banana Split cake w/ all the layers you could dream of on the bottom to go with Banana Icecream from Handel's), we also decorated shields, whacked a piñata & tossed sheep in the back yard.

It's not that birthday parties weren't fun before, but now that the kids are old enough to really engage in fun party games, this was a lot of fun for Jenn and me to host. As usual, the food was amazing, too. And Grandma Paulette helped out with some really neat decorations. If there wasn't such a thing as copyright, we could market a nice little Dragon Training Party Kit. But this ought to get some use again, because Lydia informed us that she wants an Astrid party next year after her Frozen party this year. No surprise, she's got an agenda.

Another birthday down... it was a great party for a great kid. Jenn and I are very, very proud of Lincoln.

It was a super fun party. I realized it was the first birthday party of Lincoln that I was able to attend. We were thankful to celebrate him!

It was a lot of fun to have Ella be a part of that with her cousins!
