Birthday and Cupcakes!!

Friday we were off to Waterloo to celebrate Brian's birthday. I made him some extra yummy peanut butter cupcakes (a family favorite!). Megan made an AWESOME ice cream cake, I hope to copy some day. Chloe came along for the party, where everyone crashed on available couches and floor space. In the morning fantastic hair was had by all, most notably Sebastian and Adam.
