Of course, it's also topped with the same frog-prince I put on his cake every year.

Since the girls didn't do much demolishing of their raspberry-topped birthday cakes, I picked up a couple of cupcakes for them at Holy Cow Cupcakes today to celebrate their real birthday. Grandma Karen and Grandpa Mike met us at Culver's for dinner out.

Happy 1st Birthday, Little Gerbins!
Ben requested that the twins' cakes be made with raspberries on top.
They loved the berries so much that they didn't want to eat the cake!
True to Pictor form, we had to include some kind of competition with the birthday celebration. Ben was totally excited to try out our new water balloon sling shots before his birthday party the following weekend. The competition was fierce!

Seton Summer Series is the first highlight of summer break.
Maggie is finally old enough to participate this year.
The theme: Pandamania. In the above photo, Maggie is posing ("ROAR") with her friends, Gavin and Grace.

This summer, I'm making a valiant effort to keep the television and video games turned off. Ben is making it fairly easy on me thus far. Give the kid some kind of construction toy, and he can stay occupied for hours!
Here is his with his friend, Gavin, playing with the Trios.
(Why does every toy have to be dragged upstairs from the basement
to a location where the babies can find the tiny pieces?)
And, here he is with his Q-Ba-Maze blocks. (These things are incredible!)
He has built an island with a palm tree, some sort of double-helix, and a parrot, among many other things.
Today, however, this sign appeared on the wall outside of Ben's bedroom. I'm not so sure how the rest of the summer is going to go... "Maggies not aloud in this room." Does that mean that she can't go into his room (allowed?), or that she isn't allowed to speak "aloud" in his room? I fear the t.v. is going to be turned back on soon.
