Finally getting around to blogging about this!
So Victor's birthday wasn't anything fancy or complicated, but this year I think that simple and easy was all that we could handle. We decided to go swimming at the Aquatic centre in Saint John and then head back home for cake and pizza. The day before his party and the morning of, it stormed really bad so I was worried that we wouldn't be able to go, but luckily my parents were able to drive us (our car was buried under 2 feet of snow!), and a few people were able to make it, so all in all it turned out. He LOVED swimming and didn't cry once the entire time (even when we went into the 'cold' pools), his little lips were quivering but he didn't want to get out! Unfortunately you aren't allowed to take pictures in there, but I think that next time I may sneak in my phone to snap a quick photo of him swimming, it's so cute! We then went out for lunch (won't mention where, let's just say a popular fast food chain where Victor may have had his first fast food fry *cough cough* McDonald's, don't judge *cough cough*), and then we headed home for the afternoon to rest (all the kids slept sooo well).
I got things ready and picked up Victor's cake, which my friend Vanessa made for us. I wanted to make a cake based on his favourite book, "Squishy Turtle and Friends", but I knew that I would never be able to make anything as nice as I wanted, so I hired her to do it for us since she makes such cute fondant cakes. It turned out great!
(Félix partied well into the night, as you can see.)
I still plan on doing a 12-month update for Victor, if I can ever get my act together, so that will be next, and then some non-Victor related stuff, I promise!
Thanks for sticking around this desolate little place,
