One of Walter’s favorite places to go is the beach. We wanted to make it out at least once this summer and decided to plan a trip on his birthday right before he headed back to school. The day before he helped direct me how to make his cake which he wanted to be green. After I had iced it green he said he wanted it to be red. I came up with a compromise watermelon design which he loved.
The weather was calm, sunny, and comfortable for our day at the beach. We arrived early, enjoyed the waves and sand, ate lunch, relaxed and then headed home before traffic was bad. Walter loved his cake and his special new large Lightning McQueen. He got out his pretend wrench and screw driver and pretended McQueen was broken and needed to be fixed. All in all it couldn’t have been a better day for our boy.
