Day 47 – Today is Anna’s 7th birthday. She requested a lemon cake with chocolate frosting. I had tried to use pink frosting to write the letters, but realized that the tube I bought needed special tips that of course I didn’t get. So the pink frosting when in the middle of the two layers and I used these pink flowers from the garden. We all thought the cake turned out looking quite Hawaiian!
Day 46 – I finally got Anna’s gifts wrapped. I love to wrap and had fun picking out the different wrapping papers. Actually I have quite a collection of paper. Only those that know me well know how much I truly love to wrap. One year for Christmas Annie gave me a gift of a box of different wrapping papers,ribbons, and bows. It was one of the best gifts I ever received – so me!
Day 44 – A carpet of clover.
Day 43 – The first Saturday of August, every year is the Maine Lobster Festival Parade. We always take the kids. My favorite part is always when the bagpipers walk by. I just love the sound of bagpipes. It’s nice that we live so close so we don’t have to worry about parking!
Day 42 – We took the kids to the festival today. Raychel and I checked out the art and commercial tents. The art this year was great – mostly photography – I was in heaven! We caught up with Mark, Riley and Anna who were doing the ride thing and Mark was standing near this giant banana. I couldn’t help but take a photo. He looks so happy – the banana too 😉
