Summer Part I

Wow, June has flown by! At the beginning of the month, my sweet nephew, AJ, turned two. I was lucky enough to make a trip down to be at the party!! The next week was Parma convention, which was wonderful as always. Lastly, we took a little camping trip up to Sagehen Reservoir. The trip turned south when we realized we forgot coffee for the French press- sittin’ by the campfire in the brisk mornings just weren’t the same! But it was a very relaxing and fun trip, all the same.

So, June has been full. Can you believe the year is half over?

Here are some pictures from the month:

AJ’s Party

This cake was made by my friend, Ashlyn, for AJ’s birthday party (circus theme). Everything is HOMEMADE- even the fondant! It was a wonderful cake! (and super cute, too!)

AJ’s Terrible Two Kit from Uncle Chase: included pixie sticks, a tambourine, sugar packets, super glue, permanent markers, and noise putty. Oh yeah, payback will NOT be fun! šŸ˜‰

Boating and Planting

This last week has been busy- we have been getting the house ready for summer (window washing/shampooing carpets), starting the landscaping in our backyard, and making sure we have a little time to go boating!

I now have dahlias, poppies, roses, and hydrangeas around the yard. Ā I am so excited for some colorful blooms- the dahlias are blooming quite well already.
