Then during the day Tara and Zade constructed a shark cake.
Here's a close up of it. I was quite impressed with how it turned out:
Zade invited over his friends Adam and Elaine Hendrichsen and they all went and played at Fun Unleashed for his party. For presents, the Hendrichsen's gave him shark books. Quite appropriate :) Afterwards we came back to our house for cake and ice cream.
The kids had a great time.
While Zade had a pretty good week, Ryzen and I didn't have quite as good of a time. Ryzen got a bad ear infection and his temperature shot up above 104. We had to take him to urgent care. We got him on some medicine and he's doing better. I got a bad cold and a bunch of cankers, which has been frustrating. But it's just part of life.
The weather is getting better, although one day this week it dumped a bunch of snow. Fortunately it was 50 degrees the next day so I didn't have to plow the driveway. Overall, not a bad week. :)
