Our sweet baby just turned FIVE on Monday! I don't know where the time has gone! He has brought so much joy into our lives! We absolutely love his curiosity & his witty sense of humor!
For Christmas, Ethan got a Leapster Explorer with two games that teach world geography in such a fun way...Globe Earth Adventures & Dora's Explorer.
And that began his LOVE of maps!
With those two games, he has learned all of his continents & many facts about major landmarks throughout the world. He loves looking about maps & learning anything about geography!
So when it was time to decide what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday, he said he wanted a "flat map cake." I found some pictures on the internet of world map cakes & he picked out the one he liked the best. And we HAD to make the fondant continents the same colors as the picture (although 2 of them were the same color & that really bugged me).
So here are a few pictures of the cake making process for BIRTHDAY #5!
He was really proud of his cake!
More to come on his birthday celebration!
Finding JOY in the journey,
