Axel's Party With our Hawaii Friends

This Saturday, we had a fun party with my cousin Matt and his girlfriend Kate; our friends the Go's from Alabama from when I was in 4th through 8th grades, plus Lani's son Daxton and partner Dexter; friends Allison and Fonzo; and all of us Olson's and Salisbury's.  It was a grand time.  Of course, Axel was tired and cranky and had to go to bed directly after cake, but it was fun, nonetheless.

We had salmon, smoked marlin and smoked ahi dips, artichoke cheese dip, sushi, shrimp, and all sorts of other pupus.  It was great, but I am now at least 5 lbs heavier than when I arrived here.  Dangit.

Thank you to to all our guests for a fun time, awesome birthday presents, and much merriment!

Axel looks thrilled to have such a large cake.
The tired little boy is ready for bed at this point.  Note the goopy icing in the vicinity of the caterpillar.
