Chucky Cheese and the Sea Serpent

Cooper had a fun birthday.  Why am I even writing about it?  It's totally obvious from the pictures.  He requested chocolate cake for breakfast, lunch and dinner (which he did not get--I am no Bill Cosby) and Chucky Cheese.  (Earlier he had requested a swimming party but after he broke his arm we started giving him other ideas.  Then we found out the cast was waterproof...shucky darn.  We just barely took our family swimming at the new local facility and it was rather pricey.  Do I really have six people in my family?  Wow.)  He also was consistent about wanting a shield for a present.  Well, I compromised a little and got him a Captain America shield to go with his suit, but he still liked it fine.  The biggest hit has been the Sea Serpent hot wheels set that floats in the bathtub and squirts water at the cars or whomever you point it at.  Boston was more excited than Cooper about that one, and my boys have had more baths in the last week...
Grandpa and Grandma Day joined us at Chucky Cheese and it was certainly nice to have extra grownups stuffing tokens into the machines. 
We also FINALLY got our garden in.  So far the peas and the zukes are up.  Now if I can just keep the kids from trampling everything.
I also just got called to be a ward missionary.  I've never done anything like that before but I'm really excited to help people find the truth and be happy.  I think it helps to be the new girl in town because it's easier to meet people and not have preconceived ideas about them.
I know, this looks like a teensy piece of cake, why did I put the candles on it?  It was actually a recipe that Cooper had recently fallen in love with, a Peanut Butter Brownie Fudge Pudding that you cook in the Crockpot.  I've never done a Crockpot dessert for a birthday before and wasn't sure where to stick the candles.  He declined ice cream.  That's my boy--give me the undiluted chocolate.  (Actually this is so rich I had to have ice cream on mine.  I guess he is tougher than all of us.)

You are the best mama. There is not enough hand sanitizer in the world for me to take my kids to Chucky Cheese.

p.s. Did I miss bookgroup version 2.0?
