Erik turned 40 on Sunday, and we spent the day together harassing him and sharing some fun family activities. After a wonderful brunch in Kansas City, we went to a cider mill in Belton, where Carter enjoyed his first cider mill donut. We continued on to Deanna Rose Farm, one of Carter's favorite places. Then, we attended one of Erik's hockey games. We hoped to have a photograph of him in the penalty box (or as Carter calls it, the time-out box), but, alas, he was not tough enough (he only got an assist). We returned home for ginger-carrot cake.
We will continue to harass him for being old, although Carter is unconvinced that daddy had a birthday since he does not look any taller!
