Family Vacation #4 - Birthday-ing

Scout's Birthday almost always falls during our family vacation...

...but keeping to our little tradition of having his presents on his bed when he wakes up in the morning...

...he opened his prezzie from Aunty Karen on his air mattress on the floor of the guest room - a super cool remote controled airplane - designed to be CRASHED!...

...Later for dinner - we had an awesome Chinese tofu dish concocted by Karen - have I mentioned that she is an awesome hostess! - followed by a vegan Birthday Cake complete with candles and the song...

...then the party continued at his Grandmaw and Papaw's house - with some money...

...more candles...

...and cake...

...and presents...

...a Wii game - YAY!

...then on to Mom's - or Grandma Elizabeth's - where the Birthday Banner was flying...

...more candles...

...and blowing...

...and blowing some more - aren't relighting candles FUN!...

...and gobbling down even more vegan cake (Thanks Mom!)

...and even more presents - some Itunes cards...

...12 at Last!...

...and the much wished for Nerf Wii Game!...

...Many thanks to all who participated!!!
