Brayden's 7th Birthday

Happy Birthday Brayden!!! This post is only a month late but that's ok!!!! For Brayden's Birthday we had tons of fun...I wasn't very good at taking lots of pictures (which I'm bummed about...but hey what can I do about it now.)
Brayden wanted a Knight's castle, this was inspired by Adelyn's Princess Castle that she wanted for her birthday. I tried to talk him into a different kind of cake so I could try something new, but he was insistant on his cake and he loved it!!! Since earlier that week we had Adelyn's princess one which was strawberry, Brayden said we could make his a chocolate cake;) yay!! I think he did that just for me. It was yummy!!!

After the cake was finished our family went to the Veteran's Memorial Pool in Provo to celebrate. I actually forgot my camera, but this picture is at the Veterans pool a few weeks before Bray's B-day...so at least you can pretend with me...

After the pool we ran home,had dinner, then the Carters and the Flippen's came over for cake and ice cream, then we ran to Brayden's last baseball game....we had a fun day together as a family.

Some of Brayden's favorite things that he recieved were batting gloves, swimming goggles and fins, knee and elbow pads, video games, King Peter and King Edmund action figures with a King Peter sword, Money, some new shoes, a few new outfits...what a lucky boy!!!

Holy cow...MISS TALENTED!!! Cool cake...you did a great job on both Addy's and Bradyen's. It is fun to see how one cake can look so different just by the colors,candy, etc. You did such a GOOD job!!!! I can't wait to do the princess castle one next year for Brynlee's birthday!! Anyway, you did such a great job...you are an inspiration to me! Brayden-Happy late birthday!! You are such a good boy and I can't believe you will be baptized in less than a year!!! We love you!!

I love your new family picture on your blog! I enjoyed the pictures of the cake--what a cool idea! I also enjoyed the stats--I copied that idea for Linnea's birthday too.

He is such a great kid and it was fun to get to know him a little bit while you guys were here. The cake is incredible! You and Kirsten need to go into business together - wow! What a great family!

I am SO glad you're back. I missed your blogs. That cake is amazing, I wish you lived closer, I would pay you to do my kids. I stink at cakes, seriously, I know that's hard to believe. Well, at least I hope it is because I feel pretty talented elsewhere (crafts)!!! Anyway, your cakes ROCK. We are looking forward to seeing LeGrand next week. Micah and Jake were super excited until they found out it was only Uncle LeGrand! They love him too, I guess they were thinking it was going to be Bray too and of course that was a let down. Anyway, I'm rambling. Love ya!
