We had D's official 12th birthday yesterday. My husband and the kids made an orange chocolate version of the incredibly fudgy Hershey cake. I kind of prefer it in the only-chocolate version, but it is very good. Husband also 3D printed a pixelly "Happy Birthday D" cake topper and a matching Minecraft creeper. D got some Star Wars figures and a Megablock Star Trek Klingon bird of prey ship.
Quite the birthday week, all in all.
We've also done a lot of trip planning for our summer trip to WA to see family. We're ALL going this time, which will be the first time we've ever ALL five gotten on a plane together. We're planning to get hotels and rent a minivan, which should maximize our freedom, sightseeing, and general efficiency.
