|Mr. K and I at the Ottawa Fury game on his birthday|
Dear Mr. K:
Today, you are 6. I can't really believe it has been six whole years since you came into my life. Labour and delivery with you was fast and furious and that seems like it was foreshadowing your personality.
You were a wonderful gift to our family - so much fun and full of life. You have definitely added a bit of adventure to our lives. Watching you grow has been a wonderful privilege, and I can't wait to see what the next year holds for you as you enter into grade 1.
Saturday was Mr. K's birthday party. He had 4 friends over for a video game truck party. 90 minutes in a trailer with a whole bunch of video games to choose from - they were all thrilled. He had requested a Paw Patrol cake, and while we searched online for ideas he found one that was REALLY simple and easy to do.
I made some marshmallow fondant and cut out a few dog bones, added a few of the characters that he already had. The paw prints were made from melted chocolate - I put the melted chocolate into a Ziploc bag, snipped off a corner and then used it to make circles on a piece of parchment paper. Once they had set, I removed the circles and placed them into paw shapes on the cake.
Sunday we had a surprise in store for our kids. They have been wanting to see an Ottawa Fury FC game. They were each given a free ticket with their soccer registration, so we just needed to purchase our adult tickets. There happened to be a game at 2pm today and we got tickets for the 4 of us.
We headed to Lansdown early and walked around the farmers market for a bit. Then we checked out the skate park and climbing structure that they have. The kids had fun making their way across the web.
When we were done with that we headed to the stadium and told the kids why we were there. They were pretty happy. When we left the game we headed back to our end of the city and went to Don Cherry's for dinner (Mr. K's dinner choice for the evening)
