A good friend of mine asked me to make a fresh strawberry pie for her boss' birthday. I had never made a fresh strawberry pie but I am always up for a challenge. I cannot believe how perfect this pie turned out and how delicious they said it tasted. My friend said her boss never has seconds of anything but he went back for a second slice of this pie. Always good to hear when you are trying out new recipes! This pie just reminds me of the perfect summer time dish...cool and refreshing! Now I just need to make one for myself so I can say I have actually tasted it if I ever get anymore requests.
I made a couple more blankets for another friend's baby shower and thought they turned out really cute. I should make a business out of this...but first I need to make Avery and Megan a few of their own.
Two years ago when we attended the Sky Sox baseball game for the 4th of July we took pictures on this same baseball and I think from now on to make it a real tradition we will take these same pictures. Next year little Miss Avery will be included so it should make for an even cuter picture!
This July 3rd just happened to be the Sky Sox baseball game and fireworks show so we decide what a fun time that would be for Beckett's 3rd Birthday. He love it! I thought we were gonna have to chase him around the whole stadium all night but he watched the majority of the game and particpated in all the chants and clappings that were going on. He got a little restless towards the end, as did all the others, in anticipation for the fireworks at the end. So finally at about 10:30 I think when the game was over the lights went off and the firewords started. If you had ever asked Beckett what he wanted for his birthday he would have told you Fireworks. No toys no games no nothing just Fireworks!! What an easy kid to please beings that his birthday is the day before the 4th of July. He absolutely loved the fireworks and is still talking about them. He will tell you everything you wanna know about the baseball game and every color of firework he saw that night and how little or big they were. He will also tell you his favorite saying during the baseball game was "Come on Sissy!" And it is hiliarious to hear him say it. We loved razzing the Utah Bees...even though they did win by one run. :0(
We had a wonderful time and are going to try to make this our yearly tradition for our 4th of July family celebration. Thanks to everyone who made his birthday such a wonderful day for him and our night truly one to remember. Love you all!
I am so far behind on posting. I figured I had best get this done now before Avery arrives and then I really don't have any spare time. :0) Megan is finally a 1st Grader and can attend a full day of school...thank goodness. Whoever invented half day kindergarten needs to be shot! We are so proud of you Megan. Before we know it she will be graduating from high school and I will somehow find a way to complain about that as well. In the meantime we will enjoy her while she is young and still loving school.
