Happy Birthday to Cara & Nathan!

I got home around 5am from my trip to Sacramento. Then I got about 4 hours of sleep and had to get ready for a big Frozen themed birthday party in the morning! My niece, Cara, was turning 5!

And my nephew, Nathan, was turning 4!

There were a lot of fun activities for the kids like a Frozen bounce house, crafts, and games!

Cara was dressed up for this special occasion of hers!

Nathan was also dressed up with his Olaf hat. I think he may have had too much sweets on his birthday. It’s just a thought and observation.

Did you want to build a snowman? Evan sure did!

Instead of pin the tail on the donkey, the kids played pin the carrot nose to Olaf!

If you’re curious, that’s how the cake was made! It was absolutely delicious eating this homemade cake!

My little niece and nephew are growing up so fast. I just can’t believe they’re already four and five years old! Can someone stop the clock from ticking away so quickly? I had a lot of fun watching the kids being kids at the party. I can’t wait to see them continue to grow and share with them stories of when they were this young.

Casey’s Cupcakes

At Fashion Island in Newport Beach, California there’s a fairly new cupcake shop that I have to say may be more favorable than Sprinkles Cupcakes. The layout of Casey’s Cupcakes has an old school 50’s flair with pink as its main themed color. Every single cupcake on display easily makes your mouth water.

After long contemplation on which cupcake to get, I decided to get the Peanut Butter Pizazz for $3.50. One of the main reasons why I think Casey’s Cupcakes is better than Sprinkles is because it’s not so sweet to the point where you feel like you’re getting a cavity. Though Casey’s frosting looks over the top, it’s actually not that thick and heavy. It’s not heavy enough to get sick of it easily. There ‘s a good amount of sweetness to it.

For the presentation, size, and taste of Casey’s Cupcake, it was all worth the $3.50. Well done, Casey. Well done.
