Cake Wrecks...

I stumbled upon what is now my new favorite blog website today. It is a website devoted to cakes that have went wrong. Could be miscommunication or just poor decorating. The cake that was the inspiration for the website is this one to the left. Apparently the decorator didn't get that he wanted "We will miss you" underneath the Best Wishes Suzanne. There are pages and pages of pictures and funny explanations.

I'm also posting a few of my favorites so far. The 4 year old - Grand Theft Auto Cake. Not really what your 4 year old should be into. Then the spider cake with spiders that have 12 legs each. Finally the graduation with "I want Sprinkles" instead of actual sprinkles on the cake.

We took Kady to the Zoo last week during Jamie's vacation. The Jacksonville Zoo was nice and a lot of new areas had been added since the last time we went. Kady got to feed a Giraffe and she loved that. She called all of them Melmen which was the giraffe's name in Madagascar.
By the way, I told Jamie to remind me to NEVER do anything outside in Florida June - August. It was so hot outside and after a few hours just miserable. At least Kady got to play in the splash park and have a little retrieve from the heat. I'm not really good company if one of three things happen: 1. Hungry 2. Hot 3. Sleepy. God forbid there be a triple threat and I'm all three at one time.

Backyard Photo Shoot...

I love the vines that grow in the back corner of our yard during the summer. It was a nice day to capture some backyard photos.

Riverfront Photo Shoot...

I have been wanting to take some pictures of Kady down at the riverfront for a while now. When I drove by the other day I noticed that it was all nicely mowed and cleaned up in anticipation of the fireworks this past weekend. I made a point to go down there and snap a few shots. I think they turned out good. She smiles just like Jamie and normally that is with her eyes squinting. It was such a nice day and I'm going to try to do that more often because the scenery is nice when it's all cleaned up.

We normally will let Kady play the skill crane at Wal-Mart each time we go. This time there was a small turtle animal that she wanted so I tried to win it for her. With my first quarter I was able to win two animals and we just kept going from there. With a total of $2.50 I won 14 stuffed animals out of the machine. The animals were stacked just right and were falling right into the hole without even trying. We had the most fun and played until we ran out of quarters.

4th of July

We went to see the fireworks this year and we ended up having a good time. Kady enjoyed all the pretty fireworks and she loved holding the sparklers.

We even talked Nana & Gack into coming with us this year. I love that my new camera captures fireworks with neat effects. Hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend.
