Sore... and Cake!

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Last night, Sarah and I went to the spot of the Tri and ran 5K on the trail.  It was beautiful.  But combined with the swim/bike of Monday, I'm having my first real "sore" day.  Peter rubbed my hips this morning, which felt so good.  I could barely get out of bed!  But I am so excited!!!

Sarah and I were chatting the other day about the twins' birthday party and themes...  This caught me off guard because I hadnt thought of it before, but they LOVE Kung Fu Panda (they are actually watching it now so that I can go through some papers) so I've decided to make that the theme!  I found an awesome cake online and am going to take the picture to the bakery that has done all the cakes for the kids Christening/Memorial luncheons.

The figures are plastic action figures that I ordered from Amazon, so all they have to do is make and design the cake.  I figure half choc/half vanilla should do the trick!  I ordered a small amount of napkins, plates, cups, etc for the kids who are coming, and the rest I will supplement with plain colors that match the theme (black, white, red, gold, teal).  I havent planned food yet, but one step at a time!

That's such a fun theme!! I'm not sure what Jess wants to do for her birthday yet. Last year was Cinderella. I think a tea party would be fun.

Cute cake! I actually love Kung Fu Panda too.

We're going to be doing a Mickey Mouse birthday party here soon :)

Good job on the run. I always like to check out the course ahead of time too! Gives you a leg up on the competition or at least lets you know what you're getting yourself in to!
