D Turns 11

D turned eleven last week. And we had  a little party.  As per tradition we bought our plain white butter cream chocolate cake from Wegmans and decorated it ourselves. The theme was water tag. It was the perfect sunny day and the kids had a blast We sorta dropped the ball on taking a picture of the cake cutting.. I had to take a screen shot of a video.
