Memorial Day Weekend 2013

California, Domestic, Kids

This is technically our second Memorial Day stateside but it’s our first time actually celebrating it. Last year we were just mostly confused by it because the long weekend in May in Canada is the weekend before. Totally cruel, but this year we were ready! We even wore patriotic colors and the girls and I had patriotic manicures aaaaaand I wore my ridic new Abby Dawn shoes from Just Fab! It also helped that we celebrated with amazing new friends and helped them break in their new BBQ!

Our littles had a dance party (as is the usual when we get together) and they got really into it (which is also the usual when we get together). I’m happy I managed to capture a pigtail action shot!

We baked two cakes for the occasion, which should surprise exactly no one, (both recipes coming atcha this week). A Crumble Jumble Cake made by the girls and a Chocolate Peanut Butter cake made by yours truly. I’m a big fan of letting my kids play around in the kitchen with recipes and ideas when inspiration strikes. The recipe the girls used for the cake they made came from a favorite library book, we’re going to have to get them a copy they take it out so often! I will go into it more when I post about it but the recipe was so weird I wasn’t sure it was going to hold together! They are as insane as they look, def must be shared. We each had a piece and then we shared our half of the leftovers with neighbors and they shared their half with grandma!

The rest of my Saturday went the way I love my Saturday nights to go – watching bad tv with my homie Vanessa and soaking up all the tiny-dog love. Vanessa probably has the biggest heart of anyone I’ve ever known, and thus her house is full of animals. <3 This weekend was even more full than usual because she also boards dogs while their owners are out of town. Busy!
