Getting into the summer groove...

The kids are starting off summer right - enjoying time with friends and Emma is find her inner baker!!

We are losing Carlton for the summer (sniff sniff), but the rest of the gang is ready for some fun this summer!
We had a super fun day with friends today playing & even a midday movie! πŸ‘«πŸ‘¬πŸ‘­πŸŽ¬πŸŽ¬
Lately when Emma is bored she wants to make something - anything! I am not a baker, so I am sure she gets this from my mother and I'm thankful she gets to spend the time with her to help develop her baker skills! But she found a recipe for a chocolate cake on the back of the Hershey's Cocoa box and made it all herself. I promise you it was the best chocolate cake I've ever had!!
She powdered it up for some extra goodness!!
We didn't have everything for the icing, so she just sprinkled confectioners sugar on top - it was pretty and yummy!
I love the look of pride on her face, too!! And I'm super proud of her!!!
She was so proud of her cake and I was proud of her, too! I mean I did lend a hand starting her up with the mixer, but pretty much this was all her!

We took an impromptu overnight trip to the beach (more on that in another post) and Aaron had his first game after all the rain outs for his summer league team this week, too. Plus we had a birthday party today at the skate we've been on the go constantly since Thursday morning!
Birthday party fun!!!
Coming up - our beach trip and the Texas Heat hits the diamond!!
