Summer fun

Wow, I can't believe that with school out I haven't had time to post anything. I'm loving school being out but surprisingly we have been keeping ourselves busy enough that the days seem full. Happy 4th, we had a relaxing day, Eric took the girls to see the new ice-age movie and then we had friends and family over for a BBQ and swimming. I tried a bunch of new recipes, Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs courtesy of all recipes, they were really yummy, I skewered the chicken and onion and then threw the marinated peppers, mushrooms and extra onion in a grill basket. Grilled peaches, they turned out good too and I also made this chocolate cake


we were trying a vegan cake as a test run for Sara's birthday party, as we were getting ready to decorate it I told Kate I needed to find a flag to copy (meaning an American flag) she ran off telling me she had a flag and came back with a Union Jack we had made for a school project, so we made a red, white and blue cake with a little twist! Also the cake was yummy, I wasn't so much worried about the cake as I was the frosting but that turned out good too.

I also found these super cute shoes for Sara on one of our excursions, she technically didn't NEED any shoes but all of her shoes are hand me downs and they were just too cute to resist.
