After our bellies were full, we went home, played a little bit and then I attempted to finish a cake that I had started Saturday. The kids went down for their nap and I jumped into cake mode. I really wanted to make a red velvet, strawberry ice cream cake - which is a little difficult. I managed to do it though and here is how it turned out:
I was so happy that it turned out- I didn't even care if it tasted good at this point:)
At about 3:00, Kaylie came over, the littles were up, so we decided to give Eric his gifts. I just happened to be on Somewhat Simple one day and she was giving out a code for a Father's Day book and I jumped on it! The book came in record time and I asked the littles some questions and wrote exactly what they said and I had Kaylie and Daylen answer some questions too. Eric loved it.
Here are a couple pages from it:
I was feeling crafty- much to the dismay of my step-children. You should have seen Kaylie and Daylen's faces when I told them that I was going to paint their hands. Priceless. My original idea was to go from oldest to youngest, but it turns out, Daylen's hand is WAY bigger than Kaylie's, so we ended up with this:
In addition, Eric is a big fan of candy. I pinned this on Pinterest and had to make it.....( I will find the link)
One last present- Eric had been talking about getting another tattoo (yes, I am serious). He wants Galatians 6:17 on his arm, not too much, so I talked to his tattoo guy and he is up for it! So I typed out the verse and out it in a frame...not too crafty, but I got the point across.
We went to my parent's for swimming and dinner. I think it was 106 degrees yesterday so swimming was a necessity. Brody has recently become a crazy brave little boy and it's quite stressful but I love watching them swim!
