Huxley turned 2 yesterday! Crazy I know! We had a party for him on Sunday at our house and Nick & I took him to Marwell Zoo for the day yesterday. We became members of Marwell too which is cool because we can go whenever we want now without that pressure of having to rush around to make sure you see everything to get your money’s worth. You’ve got to visit 4 times to make it worth becoming a member and we’ve already been twice so I’m sure we’ll get value for money out of it!
Huxley’s cake on Sunday was a little bit of a fail. He’d asked for chocolate cake so that’s what I made and it turned out really well, nice and soft and the icing was YUM. But, I’d bought some icing and was going to attempt to cover it and make it look like Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc but not having practised it and with the clock ticking away, the pressure was just too much for me and I chickened out. Nick suggested that I make a little Mike to stick on but I was too worried about how dreadful it would look so Nick made it instead. Although it could totally appear on cake wrecks, I’m glad Nick did it because Huxley LOVED it and kept calling it his ‘Mike cake’ so at least he recognised what it was meant to be!
We got Huxley a Duktig Ikea kitchen for his birthday and his little face was so sweet when he came downstairs and saw it! He went all shy and bashful but quickly got over that once he started ripping open the rest of his presents! I’ve been gorging on Pinterest looking for ideas to give his little kitchen a makeover! I’ve saved some of my favourites to my new Duktig kitchen hack board!
