Around the rest of the house, I hung pictures and balloons. I found a few pictures of when Baby Bro was about 6 months old and I printed a few 8 x 10’s of those and hung them on a few windows. They weren’t fancy, but I loved the fact that every where I looked, I saw my little mans happy smile!
I cut out little dump trucks and I used clothes pins to pin those and pictures all around!
Yall know that I like to make birthday cakes. They may not be all that pretty, but they sure taste good! I decided this year I would try to go with the dump truck cake and make a tear away cake.
It was SO easy. Like, took me NO time and was super simple. I will do a tutorial on this too because even the least crafty, baker could pull this off. I wont say its the most incredible cake you have ever seen, but it totally matched our theme and I loved it!
I don’t know if you can tell from the picture, but I just put in on a cookie sheet sized pan and for the dirt, I used strips of burlap I had laying around! Totally not necessary, but I liked how it looked like the truck was rolling through the dirt!
I did not make Baby Bro a shirt. I actually bought one to make something on, but as I was sorting through hand me downs that a generous friend had given us, I came across the most perfect little romper with a DUMP TRUCK on it!! I took it as a sign that my little cutie pie should don that at his happy dirt-day party!….actually its a bulldozer, but it was yellow and close enough, so I told pregnant, tired, emotional self that it was a dump truck and I didn’t worry about it.
Little man’s smash cake was fairly uneventful. I didn’t put much icing on it and he just tore it to pieces, ate a bit and played around as he tried to feed CT3.
