Belated Birthday Blog

Sorry we're a little late everybody, but it's birthday season! After Nana's in January came Aunt Shelly's and cousin Nick's in February. We had a great little get-together with a family convoy around the park, a most-delicious brisket and homemade mac & cheese provided by Shelly, and live acoustic music provided by Uncle Chris. Will enjoyed both very much, though the former he received second-hand.

After endless teasing about not being able to find a much-desired "clown helmet" (Clone...Star Wars thing) anywhere, we made the birthday boy very happy, and Mom and Dad maybe not so much. This silly contraption has built-in push-button phrases, and can change a perfectly acceptable young boy's voice to sound like that of a drive-thru restaurant employee's. As you can see, it is quite large and the voice-modifier-unit was too low to pick up Nick's commands. So, the world's smallest engineer hardly missed a beat as he connected a cardboard tube to the mouthpiece that enabled his voice to travel the necessary distance! That kid will be at work helping Dad and Uncle Terry solve problems in no time!
