Noah had a great day and although it was wet outside, we managed to have a nice little party for him - 4 kids (Blake, Emma, Maya and Noah) being an optimal number for a 2-year-old's party, in my opinion. I only stayed up until 1:00 am making his cake - this is actually a big improvement in this department for me! - and although the cake looked nothing like the model I had been trying to copy, I think it was still obvious to Noah that it was "Mater" from the Cars movie. Noah also enjoyed his presents, which had a Cars and Peppa Pig theme to them, along with this little white electronic dog that he'd fallen in love with in Harrod's a few weeks ago. I can only imagine it's a matter of time before the boys will be asking for an actual dog, so far now, this is a nice compromise. Happy birthday, Noah - we love you!
