Highlights from Ralph’s 3rd birthday party

For Ralph’s 3rd birthday party we invited friends over for lunch, consisting of spaghetti bolognaise and apple juice. Ralph requested a “quarry cake”, which Jono and I made out of chocolate cake with butter cream icing topped with crushed Whoppers (like Australian Malteasers) and chocolate-coated raisins and peanuts. For entertainment we had Aimee come and make balloon animals, and played a game of pass-the-parcel, which I never realized until then was completely unheard of in the US. About a dozen kids came over plus Moms and Dads. Everyone had a great time, especially Ralph! (Click on the pictures to see them full size).
