Steven's 35th Birthday

We had friends over on Saturday night to celebrate Steven's birthday. We ate dinner together, then headed over to the park near our house to play disc golf, which is Steven's latest passion. If you're not familiar with this game, it's similar to golf, except you're throwing fancy frisbees at baskets. I am not the sporty type, but even I enjoy this game. It helps that I'm throwing things away from me, rather than trying to catch something coming at me.

We split into 2 groups of 5 to make playing easier. I only managed a few shots with the camera. When you're actually playing a game, it's hard to remember to take photos!

It became way too dark to continue playing, so we headed back to our house for birthday cake. Steven always requests strawberry cake, which always means a pink cake. We had to man it up somehow, so we found this Darth Vader candle at Party City:

Steven is a little grouchy about being older, but at least he had a very nice birthday!

Happy Birtday Steven. There is a long way yet to 40! :)

Oh and I tried your strawberry cake. It didn't look anything like yours, but it tasted good. I couldn't do the frosting at all :(

That's Jeff's new passion too! We have a course at the end of our street. Maybe we should hook them up for golf & we'll head to the mall to window shop..
