Happy Dino Birthday

For Eli's 7th birthday we went the easy way and took two friends to the Dinousoar Museum at Thanksgiving Point. Here are the invites. We took air-dry Crayola clay, made eggs around the invite-info paper, then painted it to look like a speckled dino egg. We made an extra one for Eli so we could see how hard it was to break. Not bad! That clay was strong, but not too strong.

I made the volcano cake from here:
It is so fun. I have made this cake several times due to how easy it is to totally impress. I made one once for a silent cake auction that was a fundraiser for camp. It was a big hit.

These are the party boys ham-ing it up at the museum. That is a really fun place to go if you ever get the chance. We bought a year pass to Thanksgiving Point in Lehi, Utah when we were living there. I don't think the pass for just the Dinosaur Museum is worth it, but for the pass that covers all of Thanksgiving Point, $200 well spent!
Project from Feb. 2008
