Rock'en like the 80's

Last night a group of us went to the Def Leppard, Poison, and Cheap Trick show at the Verizon theater. It was so much fun and great people watching too! Brings back great 80's memories!

This is a shout out to my mom!

My mom is amazing, for those of you who don't already know! She is a great cook but even a better baker! She made the cake and cup cakes for the double party we had at the beach for Ethan and Rylyn. She used this castle bundt pan from William and Sonoma and their yummy vanilla bundt mix. She also hand made chocolate fish and stars for around the castle and iced it to look like water.
On top of the icing, my mom added raw sugar which added a texture to the whole cake. For her cup cakes, the inner ones where mocha flavored with icing and raw sugar on top and the outer cupcakes were vanilla bean with blue frosting and candy fish on top. Not only did the whole presentation turn out beautiful, everyone raved about how yummy they were! Great job mom, you rock!

Last weekend the three of us, Rylyn stayed home, went to Parker with the Morrows. We stayed in their little trailer by night and cruised the river during the day. It was hot, 116 to be exact, but we had a blast. Sunday the boat broke down. Apparentley, the fuel pump went out which was a bummer. But, we still had fun floating down river and being taxied home! Here are some pics from our trip.
