I throw a heck of a party.

Despite some guest cancellations due to illness Thing Two had a party this weekend.
Guess what the theme was, go ahead, guess...
Mr. Logo, in addition to all his other awesome talents (some of the downright unmentionable in polite company) can also decorate cakes. He made this Scooby cake the first time when Thing One turned seven and we had a repeat performance for the seventh birthday of Thing Two.
The kids were turned loose on a table full of craft supplies and got to play a rousing game pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey.
But the definitely highlight was when they all got to chase down Mr. Logo and pelt him with water balloons. There were nearly 100 balloons and although he started out strong after dodging and running for a while soon the pack had worn him out and cornered him.

After thoroughly soaking the paternal unit they left him to dry in the sunshine and went to enjoy the fruits of his labor.

Cake and ice cream was followed with gifts, of course.
And it seems a good time was had by all.

Sunday, Mother's Day, the Things and Mr. Logo took me to Tutta Bella for dinner. We' ve tried the one on Rainier Ave. before and the one on Stone Way this weekend. Local bloggers, if you haven't tried these out, you really should consider it.
Then we went to Archie McPhee's to pick up a couple things we desperately needed.
A good weekend all in all.

Looks like your family had a great time, Logo. That Scooby Doo cake is something that I'd even like.

Happy Birthday, Thing Two! I'm sorry I missed it. Dr. Weirsdo is asleep right now, recovering from our Mother's Day celebration, but I will be back with a belated serenade.
Good job, Dad!

I am glad that Thing Two enjoyed his birthday.....Mr Ratburn did too!

Awesome cake!!! Sure looks like you all had fun. But I'm a little disappointed. Where's the insane grass cutting? I had it pictured so clearly in my mind too. *sigh*. ;)

I'm guessing the theme was not Smurfs ;)

Good on Mr. Logophile to bake that cake.

sprizee said...

You're local? I had no idea. I live within walking distance of the new Tutta Bella on Stoneway and I don't get over there nearly enough.

Thing One and Thing Two. That cracks me up.

Logophile said...

Kyahgirl~ Awwww, good, warm and fuzzy is a good thing. He is quite talented, I will keep him a while.

Vera~ Leftovers?? Bwah hah hah hah, you must have forgotten I have children that life here. Thanks, by the way, Mom's day was good fun.

WOTS~ Thanks, I am so happy I live with someone who is willing to sit for a couple hours and decorate a cake and THEN go have kids chase him with water balloons.

Spritzee~ It is all true. WA born and bred, local gal here. I was telling Mr. Logo that I wished we were closer, I would be single handedly supporting that lil business venture.
