Jungle John

“Back in 95, a traveling zookeeper (Jungle John) came to my cousin’s birthday party and all the kids took pictures with him and his snake. Needless to say, I wasn’t into it. And I’m afraid of snakes and men in safari hats to this day.”

The Birthday Cake

“I was really proud of this Spiderman cake I made for my sons 4th birthday. I tried to get both Spiderman and the motorcycle he was riding on the top of the cake. Unfortunately, both didn’t fit. I didn’t realize until the party was in full swing what exqctly Spiderman was doing to the cake.”

Vanilla

My brother must have just turned 14 or 15 which apparently means that there is no party anymore. Instead he was stuck with an undecorated cake and a chicken pox/calamine lotion covered little sister to take his picture with. Clearly, neither one of us was very happy about it.

Saturday Night Fever

“This is a a portrait taken of my family for my tenth birthday. The photographer asked us for a serious look, a la Old Timey photos. I kept giggling so he told me to ‘look more like your Dad!’ Easy enough.”

Looks like she got her birthday wish after all.

Everyone deserves a moment in the potlight.
