In the spirit of catching up, I felt the need to share pictures from Quentin's birthday. Especially because they include a pretty sweet DIY project made by Trevor. He doesn't get featured all that often on Fraises et Tartines, but he is a man of many talents. Since becoming a home owner and then father he has really stepped up his game. Enough about that for now, though, here's the birthday boy.
|Birthday morning. He had school that day so I got up and made some madelaines |
for him to share with his classmates. This was very exciting.
|He got to open his first present at breakfast. A garden-theme lunch box with |
matching fork and spoon.
|Pretty sure he liked them.|
|Here is the dinner I made for his birthday. Breaded catfish with tomato salsa and green beans. |
Fish is his favorite so he was pretty stoked about it.
|After dinner, Quentin got to open a few more presents from maman and papa (us). First up, a doll. Seeing as he's got a baby sister coming soon, we figured we'd get him a "girl doll."|
|I guess he liked her because he started giving her kisses straight away.|
|Lucky boy also got a tool set. And look, here comes the next present...|
|And last but certainly not least, Quentin's new picnic table, made by Papa. Trevor busted this out in a day. I couldn't believe it. He's been holding out on me with these carpentry skills!|
|Q is a big fan.|
|Okay now that I'm sitting here, how about a birthday treat?|
|How about a homemade madelaine? Yum!|
