Yesterday we celebrated Caleb's 5 1/2 birthday. (For those of you who don't know, we don't celebrate his actual birthday because it falls very close to Christmas. Instead we do a summer "half birthday" party every year.)

I'm hoping you will all forget that I haven't blogged in a while and accept this plethora of photos in compensation. :)
Yeah, the banner should say "5 1/2" but they don't make half signs for these sorts of things.

He was up at 6am and ready for presents. I made him wait till Daddy woke up, though, which was a whole hour later. :) 
A marble maze builder set from Grammy and Grandpa. I now have tiny legos AND marbles to watch out for when I walk. Joy.
Look out Decepticons, Optimus Prime is in da house!

In the afternoon, we had a little party for Caleb and his friends. We set up food and cake at a park on the beach and let the kids play.  
Water guns in the goody bags = best idea ever! 
The cake (ta da!). Gluten-free Pamela's chocolate cake mix and homemade vanilla buttercream frosting. Yummm! (Never mind the fact that my first batch of frosting bombed and I had to scramble to make another. The frosting was supposed to be blue to match the Transformers theme, but the all-natural food dye I just recently bought made the frosting taste AWFUL. Hence the second batch of white, non-colored frosting. But hey, it tasted awesome!)
Happy Half Birthday, my little man! You are growing up so stinkin' fast and I love you to pieces. :)
There's lots more for me to blog about, friends. I will do my best to get a few more posts written this week and catch y'all up on our latest news. Including a rather big announcement. :) Stay tuned!
