James manned the grill, cooking up hamburgers, hot dogs, and sausages. Everyone else brought some side dishes. Miekka escorted me into Costco to buy a sheet cake and ice cream for Phillip's "pre-birthday bash with the Lances" party. Our cousin, Joanna and new spouse, Cody were in attendance in all their newly wed bliss. Dad had everyone circle up and tell stories until dusk. We took a short break for cake and ice cream. Phillip was mesmerized by the candle flame, he touched the flame right on cue to blow out his candle. Poor little fingers got singed a bit. The lure of cake, frosting, and ice cream soon overcame his burnt fingers. Sadie, Mia, and Lia were so cute trying to boss each other around. Mia won only because of size. The other two girls will soon show her up. I felt really tired by the time we left due to running around keeping the peace and holding my babies, camera included. Phew, I should have just sat down and enjoyed the stories more. Silly me.
