Bren is good friends with Oscar so we got an Oscar the Grouch Birthday Cake.

It made mom so happy she cried.

Earlier in the day we did some other things, like find a bunch of bright yellow dandelions.

Then we opened up a gift, it was a Fisher Price Mater Bubble Blower.

Grandpa J at 70 years

Grandpa J hits seventy today and we celebrated on Saturday with a cake, music and fire. It was a nice cool day for playing some football and enjoying the beach.

2+ month old Veronica did a good job sleeping through all kinds of noise.

I mistook this photo for Gus when I first uploaded it, must be the recent buzz cut for Johan.

Mary brought this splendid fishing theme cake that was right up Jeff's alley. The attention to detail was amazing. I could only snap a few pictures before it was cut into and this one doesn't do it justice, but visit Sandy Oh's Cupcake's Facebook page to see higher quality pictures from all angles of the cake.

Gus is one of the coolest guys I know. Just likes to play ball and have fun, and sets a good example for his younger siblings and cousins. Got some good pictures of the event, here are just a few.

Ellie watching Johan send a box along the lift 'n load. :)

Okay, now the scene shifts to Como Zoo, end of August 2009. Here's a pretty butterfly. As always, right-click and "view image" to see the closer view.

Ellie seems to be devising a plan, while the boys and the gorilla listen.

Hey, let's put Brendan by the gorilla. Alas, it was not his day...Had a fun time and all, but he lacked sleep, and he didn't want any part of the jungle-lord. Maybe next time. Ellie's look is key - staying cool but still kind of like "wow this kid is going nuts".

But Bren enjoyed the ride on the Old Timer with mommy.
