Birthday Bash

Our girl had a wonderful birthday celebration with family. The sign she is holding is one we had made for her first birthday. The boys found it and put it in the yard. How cute is that? The boys started a tradition a couple of years ago where they launch rockets to celebrate Sissy's birthday. It's so much fun watching them get everything ready and then they do a count down and usually the rocket launches before they get finished. Good times! I made the centerpiece with Emms Eiffel tower and clipped pictures of her on it. Simple little carnations with a vase full of lemon slices, so easy. She loves zebra and black and white so here where her napkins and plates. This dessert is so yummy and all sugar free!! Her and I are doing great on our intentional eating and she didn't want to blow it on her birthday. This is a SF angel food cake with SF vanilla pudding ,SF cool whip, Sf crushed pineapple,fresh raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. It's so fresh and light and oh so good!! She had a great evening and the only thing she said was what's up with famous people dying on my birthday.
We are off to the lake and that means I won't be checking in for about 3 weeks. This is one of the best times of the year. No tv, no phones, no computer. Just the family, God and nature. I love it. I'm going to take some craft projects and some reading. I always come back rejuvenated.
So enjoy your July 4th celebrations and I pray you all are enjoying your summer!!
Wishing you a nice summer breeze with a beautiful sunset!!
