Time to play in the sprinkler with the sun shining........

Two of the three birthday girls celebrating outside. We had set up tables and chairs for everyone to eat outside but it was a bit too windy. All outside decorating was moved indoors where it wasn't blowing down the minute you taped it up. It was a beautiful day though-sunny and warm.
Love, love, love this picture!! I didn't really post about the vanilla cake with pink frosting that my soon to be 5 year old finally decided on but she knew right from the start, she wanted High School Musical-my mom bought her a bunch of stuff and she decorated her cake herself! As you can see............she likes to decorate..........
and does not appreciate good singing!
Fun day with friends and family!
mmm, yum, if you're looking for a delicious chocolate cake recipe, Hershey's "Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate Cake is it!
Topped with "Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate Frosting......delicious
.....and, of course,
Quick and easy......
the perfect combination!
My soon to be 10 year old knew exactly what she wanted for her birthday cake-no waffling on her part!! Lots of happy party guests enjoyed if with her!

I have to admit...... I used the refrigerated cookie dough.......but I do want to try to make the crust myself soon. The combination of the crust, frosting and fruit was delicious. We even used the extra frosting as a dip with the extra fruit. My daughter arranged all the fruit herself and you can't see it, but the blueberries make a smily face in the middle of the pizza.

I'm celebrating with a giveaway from CSN Stores. Oh boy, there's nothing like shopping in the comfort of your own home - it's heaven for me..........
no getting dressed.....no loading all the kids into the car...no making sure everyone has gone to the bathroom...no rounding up shoes and drinks and snacks....no keeping track of everyone while I try to remember why I was going shopping in the first place! CSN Stores have just about everything you could want or need from toys to lights for your house to bathroom vanities.
CSN Stores has sponsored a giveaway for my blog before and I was very happy with both their customer and delivery service. The giveaway item was delivered very quickly.
Educational Insights GeoSafari SeaScope. I've never tried one but it looks real cool and I think my kids would love it. Great toy to put in the camper or take on hikes. I just saw it in Parents Magazine in an article for cool summer toys and decided to check it out.
You can use this 4x telescope to view distant objects on land or attach it to the water-resistant SeaScope to magnify life in streams, ponds, lakes or tide pools-sounds cook! The Aqualite™ flashlight attaches to the SeaScope for viewing in dark or murky underwater conditions.
