3rd Birthday Motherload

We had a very fun birthday lunch for Nick on Sunday.  Between Mass and a tournament playoff game, we managed to squeeze in some Dino Party Fun!

The girls and I challenged ourselves to make a Dino Cake using rolled fondant and modeling gum paste figures.  We got the idea off the web at Beautiful Kitchen.  Maria was in charge of coloring, rolling, and modeling the gumpaste and  fondant, Monica baked the triple layer vanilla cake, and I did the shopping and wrapped the cake in fondant.  I think Maria did an awesome job with the little dinosaurs!  Who knew playing with Play-Doh would reap such culinary benefits!  I found all of the printables for free online.  You can find this theme and many more at this site.

For the lunch, we had dino-shaped chicken pieces, dinosaur horns (Bugles), dino pop, mini cupcakes, and chocolate rocks.

Grandma Carol and Grandpa Ben visited later that evening to drop off gifts and chat.  The birthday boy was sporting his new train conductor duds while he played with his birthday toys.

Here are a few action shots of Maria during the basketball game.  They hustled and won this game in a shut out.  Tonight's game was played hard, but her team lost by 1 POINT!!!!  Oh, well....better luck next year.
