We've spent the last few days celebrating our Sky Boy's third birthday. This year, we kept it simple, with no formal birthday party, just lots of time with his family, simple decorations to make him feel special and lots and lots of Captain America. Brian had a few days off, so we spent his actual birthday at home stress-free bouncing around balloons with his brothers and playing make believe. The next day, we decided to take a little staycation into Waikiki. We drove into town in the evening, grabbed some dinner and stayed in a hotel. The next morning, we were ready to grab breakfast and spend the rest of the day at the Honolulu Zoo before we headed back home to the North Shore.
It was just perfect.
A few months back, we were browsing through Captain America things on YouTube and came across THIS VIDEO. Sky made it quite clear that this cake was the only thing he wanted for his birthday. Over the course of 2 days, I made my own marshmallow based fondant (for the first time ever) and seemed to accomplish a somewhat successful Captain America shield cake. If you've ever attempted the marshmallow fondant yourself and experienced the sheer claustrophobic sticky mess, you'll understand the feat I accomplished... all while holding a 20 pound chunky baby in one arm.
It was well worth it.
The little Cap' also got himself some shield pancakes.
