At least the trip to Rexburg wasn't a total loss. I didn't want to bake a whole cake when there wouldn't be anyone to eat it all, so we went to the Broulim's bakery. They had made the funnest little cupcakes, so we got two (one for Squirt, one for Lucy, and Steve and I finished what they didn't! Yum!).
Outside Broulim's in the famous car carts.
We had pizza for dinner, cupcakes, fully accessorized with candles, for dessert, and then Squirt was allowed to open one present. He opened the one from my brother, Nick, and his family. Look at the pictures to see Squirt's reaction.
Bumble Bee Transformer!
A card from my Grandma. We allowed him to buy his own toy with that money. Now that's a first!
Blowing out his 4 candles.
It was an awesome birthday. I was very pleased, except for the dead battery! But Squirt was very happy to be 4!
