Well it just so happens that Photo Friday and a certain little ladies’ first birthday coincided this week, so I felt it my fatherly duty to put the two together. Although we’re far from home, we managed to talk with many relatives on skype today and got many more birthday wishes by email and facebook. C managed to make an incredible chocolate cake in our microwave/convection combo, and I whipped up a castle out of cardboard with a King and Queen for AK to play with (it’s amazing what you can do with a leatherman and duct tape!). AK was lucky enough to get a birthday Chouquette from the local bakery, and had a fun afternoon at the park. Thanks to Grandma for the bib, I don’t think we’ll ever get the chocolate out of it, and sorry for waking you up this morning!
