Last week Pierce turned 10. Gone are the days when I crafted theme cakes for him. This year he said he is too old for that. Instead, he wanted a "caramel Frappuccino" cake. I crafted a two layer cake with espresso and caramel. It had structural issues, but it tasted good.
Pierce loves electronic gadgets. He has a particular fondness for old Polaroid cameras and old telephones. His favorite food is anything with salted caramel. He still loves anything dealing with robots.
In addition to a couple of small things, Pierce got a mummy sleeping bag for his birthday. Now he'll be all set next time we go backpacking.
He has wanted a mummy sleeping bag since the twins got theirs for their birthday, so he was pretty excited. We'll have to plan a backpacking trip soon, before it gets much colder.
I'm taking a little blogging break, but I hope to see you some time next week!
