Happy Birthday, Ethan!

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,
