Happy Birthday Mommy!

Look at this baby!!! Isn't she a beauty?! This was my birthday present to myself and it was totally worth all the hard work it took to complete. The best part, the boys wanted nothing to do with it because of all that marvelous toasted coconut...mmmmmm!! Yes, it's a coconut custard, coconut cake with coconut marscapone frosting. I used a Bobby Flay Throw Down Recipe and tweaked it here and there. The coconut custard it's self was a birthday present!  Click here for the recipe but if you decide to make it I would adjust the frosting (I think there are some errors in the one posted): Coconut Cake Oh, don't worry...I made the boys ice cream cone cupcakes so they wouldn't be tortured by my coconut cake. :)
 With the cake made, my birthday was complete! Or, so I thought...three boys had other plans.

I woke up to a beautifully wrapped gift.

My big EXCITED helper!

Climbing pants! The worlds best climbing pants!! Now, if only we could find some rock around here to try them out on.

The boys pretended to be excited that I was receiving pants on my birthday but quickly moved to the next plan. Lucas handed me a special paper.

A treasure map!!

The first map lead me to the kitchen...

where I found map #2...

#2 lead me to the printer...

where I found #3....

#3 lead me to the car! Axel was extremely excited and popped the trunk for some reason?!?!?  I didn't pay much attention but did check out the car for my present.

A cool sweatshirt!! Whoot!! Oh, false alarm...that was Lucas' sweat shirt and it was a little tight on me.

 I then found my gift in the trunk of the car: A NEW PRINTER/SCANNER/COPY machine!! Awesome!!! What a perfect gift and a super fun way of finding my treasure! Thank you boys!!

That afternoon, we headed to Destin for another Big Kahuna Water Park visit and a trip to Harbor Walk. They had a Pirate Show for kids which turned out to be a great time for the whole family.

They giggled and giggled and really got into the play!

Mommy and Daddy really got into it too!

The show ended in another treasure hunt! Here Daddy documents some of our findings.

Axel was a little confused when he didn't get ice cream but only had to list three flavors. Sorry bud!

Here the boys are trying to figure out a few more things.
In the end, each boy received a pirate hat to build at home. And home was just where we were headed!!

There was DELICIOUS CAKE to be eaten!!
Oh how I love this cake!! Look, I'm only 7 years old too! :)

Happy Birthday Mommy!

Thank you Daddy, Lucas and Axel for making my birthday so special. I know it's hard to have my birthday right after Mother's Day but you guys did great!! I love you all so, so much!!
