MMMMMM! Ice Cream Cake!

Mister C turned 41 yesterday. We had ice cream cake. My life is complete. There is just something about the concept of making a cake out of ice cream for a summer birthday that just makes perfect sense. Thankfully Mister C understands this logic and claims this type of cake to be his favorite. See why I married him?

We didn't have a big celebration or anything. Heck, I didn't even get him a present. I did order one though. On his birthday. Some time after 3:00 pm. Hey I try. My dad, younger sister (Miss Lee) and her boyfriend (Music Man) showed up for the non-festivities and dinner. We grilled pork & chicken kebabs and had a big salad for dinner. When I say "we" grilled, I mean that Mister C grilled. Just because I love him doesn't mean he shouldn't cook his own dinner on his birthday.

It was an enjoyable day with good food and good company. The best part though was when Music Man found baby fish in my tank. Now, I knew there was a young blue zebra floating around in there and I had seen an electric yellow hiding as well. But, I had no idea there were more. Music Man started studying the bottom of the tank and came up with another smaller blue zebra and an additional three electric yellows, each smaller than the last. How cool is that? Now I just hope they make it long enough to no longer fit in the mouths of the bigger fish.

Don't you just want to pinch his fishy little cheeks?
