Christopher's 5th Birthday

This year (2001), Christopher decided on a "construction" birthday.  So we bought hard-hats and other
similar props, and decorated the yard with yellow construction tape.

Agnes made the cake for the party as usual.  Note the construction vehicles.

A closer shot of the left side of the cake showing a 'dozer moving some candy.

The 'rocks' in this scene are malted milk balls.

We had good weather and could have the party outside.  It was a small party this
year, with about 6 friends.  Christopher is about to open his presents here.

When we were in Aruba earlier in the year, Agnes saw this bulldozer that he
really wanted.  He was awestruck to see it as one of his presents.

Let's tear into it!
