Polluting Young Minds
When it came time for Jacob's birthday, Laurie put the pedal to the metal and went nuts, creating a full-blown Car Talk bash!
How'd it go over? Pretty well, judging by Jacob's note to Car Talk:
At my party, we had crankshaft salad (rotini pasta salad), pushrods on buns (hot dogs), dipsticks (carrot/celery sticks), watermelon steering wheels and drank "radiator fluid" (bright green Hawaiian Punch). We finished off with a car-shaped ice cream cake that said "Car Talk" on it.Hats off to Laurie for her amazing party planning skills-- and our deepest condolences to your family on your son's poor judgement! If this is any indication, it's going to be a loooong adolescence.
We played "Find the Lug Nuts," "Car Wash Relay," "How Far Can Your Power Steering Fan Blade Go?" and "How to Siphon Gas from a Gas Tank."
That was a fun party!
