The biggest question of the
three-way birthday may be who gets to decide the flavor of the cake.
“I’m not really sure yet,” said
Kayli. “This year I just got two different cakes. One was white with The Little
Mermaid. It was Kennedy’s pick. The other was chocolate with The Smurfs for
Michael’s first birthday.” She also served both vanilla and chocolate ice cream.
