Cake Boss

Our household is a BIG fan of Food Network and basically ALL cooking shows dealing with cake! We started with Ace of Cakes and now we really enjoy Cake Boss. For Star and Sky's birthday, they decided to "play" Cake Boss and make a stunning creation for them. I made a couple of batches of marshmellow fondant to cover the cakes. The girls got a work-out rolling it out nice and thin.

Maya, Sage and Mary Katharine (our favorite friend from San Francisco!) all pull together to get the fondant smooth.

Kara came home and decided that she was going to decorate the fondant covered cakes...much to the chagrin of some hard-working girls!

Ta-da....the finished project!

Family Fun in Cayman

Our family reunion in Cayman was a BLAST! With a plane full of ONLY family members, it's a great time for all. Playing games and visiting with one another is high on the list.

The cousins playing games on the floor of the plane...good thing there was a BIG area, cuz there are tons of cousins!

This little guy was not invited to the family reunion, but came anyway! We found him between the slats in our walkway....and we saw him all week long!

Another new addition to our family is this moray eel, who took up residence under our boat dock.

This was the FUNNEST thing ever....thanks Derek and Becky...the RELAXATION STATION!

The girls went back to their "stash" and found this beauty.

Sage had a scuba diving lesson with Andy Croft.

I grabbed this photo with all the kids as we were leaving the island.

One night there was this MAGNIFICENT sunset that only kept getting better and better.
Bye Bye Cayman....till next summer....
