|Despite their appearance, I assure you they |
were quite thrilled with the festivities
My mom had this great idea for "birthday trees". Autumn and Emma each had one with their presents under it.
And the cake! YES! So proud of it! I made it and did the frosting while Meagan bought the Dora and Boots and put all that together. Way better than anything Wal-Mart or Publix could have done!
I dyed half the frosting blue for the water, obviously, and spread on the rest of the frosting and covered it with graham cracker crumbs for sand. At first I was going to use brown sugar for sand. Meagan bought the Dora and Boots figures and the trees were from my mom's leftover decorations.
I am very excited by how everything turned out, and that it was still hot enough to swim! Just a couple days later it was 65 degrees outside! Crazy! Although I am very pleased with the change in weather. Long overdue if you ask me.
