I'm very, very happy with it.
So, what did you do for Independence Day?
Ty & I made this:
It's a "Coke Cake." We made it using a cake mix (two, actually) and a can of diet Coke (two, actually)... and boy was it yummy! We made the cake for a big family BBQ. I was bummed that my sisters couldn't make it, but most of Matt's family came, my dad & step mom came, and our friend Steph & her parents came.
There was a little baseball watching, a little knitting, a few fireworks and a lot of eating. Tyson overcame a fear and did something he's ever done before. He actually held some sparklers... and enjoyed it!
And Riley? Well, of course, he didn't get to hold a sparkler, but he did dress up for the occasion. He started the day by paying homage to our armed forces: And later he changed into a red, white & blue outfit. (I apparently missed getting a photo of the second outfit..).
On Saturday we took advantage of the unseasonable cool weather and took the boys for a picnic at the park.
