Happy Birthday Cate!

When you turn five you have ice cream for breakfast! At least that's what they do in Scotland - which is where we were for the big 5! Cate loved it. Couldn't finish it either, had to have Daddy polish it off. No complaints from him either. Just look at the beautiful little face! So precious!

We did a looooong driving tour of England and Scotland starting in London headed to Nottingham and Sherwood Forest, then spent a night in Leeds. Off to Edinburgh in the morning stopping at Roman fort ruins along Hadrian's Wall (fabulous! photos to follow). From there we drove to Blackpool and Pleasure Beach which is the home of Nickelodeon Land (woo wee!). Did it all if 6 days - too much if you ask me. Fen and I decided next time we're picking ONE place and staying there!

So little Ms. Cate had her third birthday cake since we've been in London. She's lived here the same amount of time as she has in the US now. She doesn't remember New York or our Brooklyn home. That makes me sad. We're not going home this summer either as we're headed to New Zealand instead.

Her big birthday bash in in a few weeks. Her entire class is invited and we're hosting it along with three adorable little girls in her class. It's all Disney princess themed and I know she's going to just love it. I made her another cake with was an explosion of pink on her buttercream vanilla icing, jam in the middle. Divine. As you can see, she likes it!


  1. Precious indeed, Happy Birthday Little One.

  2. Oh Happy Birthday to the beautiful Birthday girl!

    Darn it! I know we are in disarray but you should have stayed with us on the way up. Sounds like a great trip though. Love to Fen and X.

    Great cake!


Go ahead, make my day!
