Evan's 12th Birthday

As usual, the birthday celebration was the Saturday before your birthday (as the 29th was a weekday). As you were turning 12, we agreed on this mustache. 

This time we opted for barbecue (your favourite), but we kept the menu simple. Daddy started preparing earlier, so by the time our guests arrived, most of the food was ready.

We found these mustache straws. So suited to the party theme

After dinner, it was time for cake. This year we opted for a new cake shop and the gave us this very unusual candle.

And then it was time to open the presents. There was a "mysterious box" which appeared out of nowhere after you got back from robotics class. So obviously, that was the first present you opened.

It came with this message, but I think in your haste to get to the present, you did not bother to read it,

After opening the many layers, you got to the present. 

Ah.. all smiles

And on to the other presents

 And the other highlight of the night was the handmade crossbow which Grampie made for you.
