Photo of the Day August 2nd

We took off to Beaverton today for a long-overdue visit with my mom, grandpa, aunt, uncle and cousins. I swear, my family is like medicine to me: whatever ails me always feels better after a dose of them! Since August has only just begun it seemed like the perfect time for a family birthday celebration - many of us share that month for our birthdays, and my cousin Sandy and I even share the same date. The "girls" (our next-to-youngest generation, seeing as how the youngest generation are still too little to be allowed free rein in the kitchen) decided to put on a pot-luck dinner complete with a special dessert created by my cousin Sandy. As you can see by her super-cute calendar cake, July is a busy month for us!


  1. I laughed when I saw the cake not so much because of all the birthdays but because if you stand back a bit, it looks like a BUTT cake! How cheeky of me to notice that.


  2. Oh, you're not the only one... According to Sandy, before she put the names on it Greg asked her why she was making a "plaid shorts" cake for our birthdays!
