Cake at the Lake

We made a quick last minute trip to the lake on CJs birthday (Moto-Moto took a kayaking class at The Narrows.) I made s'more cupcakes to take with us and celebrate her birthday with everyone that was there taking part in the class. We had so much fun... until the following day when it was cold and rainy.

S'more Fun

We found a different year end treat for our friends at daycare...

S'more Trail Mix

Golden Graham Cereal
mini marshmallows
milk chocolate chips

Our tag says, "I can't wait to have s'more fun with you this summer."

I took some to work today too and the staff thought it was great!
It was quick and easy, I'll definitely be making it again!

Tomorrow we are making Canada Day cookies!!!

Year End Favors

CJ didn't want to take "birthday treats" to school but did want to take "year end favors" so we made these RK ice cream cones. (Our first thought was to fill the cones with cotton candy but our sample one shrunk over night into a mess.) CJ's BFF had these at her birthday party and we thought it was a great idea!! Thanks B & C!!

Happy 8th Birthday CJ!!!!

Happy Birthday CJ!

Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer
8th Birthday Party!!

CJ has read most of the Judy Moody books and thought it would be a good movie to see with her friends. It got mixed reviews from the girls...

In between the movie and cake, we tried to have a photo shoot (we may do another when the weather is a bit nicer!!)

(thanks to Sassy for the chalk board speech bubbles AND for making CJ's Judy Moody banner for the party at home!!)

Luckily the rain stopped here and there. We were able to jump out of the van quickly get organized, snap pictures and dash back into the van to the next graffiti wall before it rained again!

Back home we painted frames for our photos and made 'Thrilladelic Supermegatotallyawesome Summer Fun' Lists.

CJ requested 'mood' cupcakes ...

CJ is in a great mood because she had a fun time with her friends!
I cannot believe that she is 8 already!!!!

Make-It Monday Reveal

Remember this from Make-It Monday?!

It's ....

Dinosaur World!!!

The girls made it for their friend The Sprout who had a dino-mite birthday party today!!

We found the idea months ago here
The hardest part was finding a hard shell suitcase that would work... it was tricky to find one that was divided in half and have hinges that would allow it to open all the way so it would lay flat on the floor.

We first started by setting in our form to make the volcano and caves (there are 3 but only little hands will be able to sneak a dinosaur into the hidden 3rd cave.)
Next I sprayed the forms with "Great Stuff"
expanding foam... it will keep on expanding so be careful!

Once it was dry my princesses painted a base coat in grey then sponged on some black, grey, brown and white to give our caves and volcano some texture.

We added grass and other greenery, a lake and more foam rocks then some dinosaurs and viola....

Dinosaur World!!

We sure hope you have fun playing with all your dinosaurs, pack it up quickly and take it with you wherever you go!! (We think you'll like it at Pa's too.)

Thanks for such a great time at your party!!
