last night we had part one of jack's 7th birthday party, a two-part party (because of two sets of traveling grandparents...that would be a great band name, wouldn't it? the traveling grandparents.) with a bug theme. we had a great time among the ants and bees and spiders and so on. shannon made a "earth" cake with a tree stump and an anthill, and some accompanying bugs. enjoy some pictures of the cake and the festivities, until part two next weekend!
