You'll be shocked to learn there were cupcakes.
Where from, you ask? Mister A will tell you.
His Highness awaits the party in his honor.
Then there was singing, which he found a bit embarrassing.
And we decided Mister A would look more festive this way. (Since party hats are obviously not an option- this boy does not do hats.)
Then his hands got messy.
So he used Auntie Megan's hair to clean up.
Then, there were presents and pictures and the party came to an end.
A with Grandpa.
My WCBFF (that's west coast BFF, in case you don't speak tweenspeak) C, and her sweet baby A.
A's favorite Cali girl, A. (She's beyond adorable. Those eyes!)
A video of the birthday song.
And another video from his actual birthday.
That's all from the coast, my friends. (Insert my sad pouty face here.) We fly home tomorrow and as sad as that is, the cooler Texas temps I see on weather.com are making it a little easier to deal with. If I had to return to 100 degrees, I'd be on the phone right this minute with JetBlue canceling our tickets indefinitely. But alas, there's much to look forward to back home as well. It's fall decor time (look out Hobby Lobby, here comes big mama!), Lauren's sure-to-be-awesome wedding is fast approaching, and my DVR is probably going to explode from all the fabulous fall programming it has to work with this week. So I'll deal. Not sure how Mister will respond when he finds out there won't be daily birthday cupcakes back home, though. Yikes.
