Every Monday I post a photo that is meant to inspire you, motivate you, cause you to pause and ponder, remind you of your dreams and hopefully entice you to act on whatever your goals may be. This Monday, April 30th is actually my youngest son’s birthday. He turns 6 today and is crazy about Angry Birds. So my wife made a playable Angry Birds cake along with Angry Birds cupcakes for his party which we had on Saturday. Yes, that’s right, a playable Angry Birds Cake.
Everyone loved the cake and cupcakes and we even had a guy from another party where we were at stop by wearing an Angry Birds t-shirt and wanted to take photos of the cake.
We had a great celebration with friends and family and the kids enjoyed trying to play the Angry Birds cake. It was a learning experience on that. We made a slingshot with rubber bands and a stick and screwed it to a wood base. It ended up being a little hard for the kids to launch the birds and in hindsight we should have made some modification. But regardless it was a fun cake and the kids ended up just tossing the birds at the pigs.
Finally this post would be incomplete without a photo of Joseph, the birthday boy. He turns 6 today. We took this photo at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in Woodburn Oregon early last week. A storm was rolling in and I love how he and his tie-dye shirt really stand out against the rolling green see of the grass field.
Whatever your plans for this Monday are try and make a lot of experiments.
