ANOTHER Birthday party??!!

My goodness!! So my last post was about Megan's visit to town for Grandpa's bday and Spring Break, but then Morgan had his birthday also a few days later and then my cousin Shawn's is this week... and then we had a visitor who our family has adopted that we haven't been able to see in a very long time. My mom's best friend, Traci! So the family started out the day with a little four wheeling in Nights Hollow.

Along our little jaunt through the trails, we saw these amazing pieces of ice that had broken off of the middle of the lake and the waves caused it to form this formation. I had a couple of lovely family members get on and pose for all of you viewers. If you can't tell who they are, I'll give you a hint... it's Trent and Chad... good hint huh?
Then afterwards it was time for an amazing cake that I had built... I made two of them, but I made the one that I made for Emily's birthday, which was the banana crunch cake. But my masterpiece that I stole from Jody Martin, thanks Jodi! was a candy barrel cake. It was a big hit! And I had a fun time making it. We had to have the party for all four of them because it's always best with big numbers right? But I just wanted to say how nice it was to spend some time with Traci. I hadn't seen her since my wedding and her son had recently passed away, so I was excited to see her. So I hope she has a good birthday! It's not until the first part of April, but it was fun to spend it with "extended" family. lol! I hope that everyone had a good birthday! I had fun seeing everyone again, but I fear that if I see another cake in the near future, I will throw up! So if you have a birthday, don't expect me to be part of the cake eating, because I can't! I tried to get a good picture of the four birthday "kids", but Morgan was scowling and Traci kept closing her eyes... so this is the best I got.

Hey Mel! I found your blog through Megan's blog who found my blog through someone else's. :) Got that? :) hee hee

It's fun to "see" you again! It looks like you and Trent are doing well. I'm so happy for you! I loved the candy barrel cake idea, too, but haven' tried it. Looks like you did a great job! the next time you go to a party with cake, let me know and I'll have your piece. maybe then I'll stop eating so much cake! :)
