Pinkalicious 6th Bday Party!

what an amazing cupcake huh! No we didn't make this for the party, but I have made it before. Someone's amazing idea and she posted it on her blog, it involves melting chocolates in the big cupcake pan and using it as a liner. So cute!!
Happy 6th Bday Savvy!
Cute Girls!

We celebrated with lots of silly girls having lots of fun. involving pink of course

Pink toes

I was laughing at this picture, has Savvy seen me cuddling with my money, dangit I thought that was in private...

She was so excited by the pic Nana Donna sent of them holding up her pic with the August birthdays!!

Cole was in on all the pink action too, he was the only boy allowed

Gift time

Sara pretty much planned and executed the whole thing so a huge thanks to her!! I told her I had the cupcakes in the bag and totally spaced getting candles. She was mortified of course but luckily i heard glass filled candle wishes also come true.

What else have we been up to this summer?

The Planetarium! Ever since we read about it in our Fancy Nancy books Savvy has been dying to go there. Love this pic of Creed looking at Albert Einstein like What??

Checking out LA
and all the planets
Cool machines

And the moon!

Afterwards we ate outside on the balcony overlooking all of Los Angeles and the hollywood sign. you can see it at the top of this pic, but because of the smog not very good :)

Hollywood sign! We want to hike it sometime
Afterwards we tried a cute new (to us) cupcake shop. It is called Delilah Bakery
Its in Echo Park and it was adorable with the yummiest cupcakes!! Creed thought so too....
obviously red velvet was his fav, but he also enjoyed a little peanut butter and the yummiest of all chocolate! Oh their chocolate was so so good!

Bear Lake at long last

Last month I took the kids up to Utah/Idaho for a camping trip to Bear Lake with the family. While at the lake, Uncle Jay and Aunt Natalie decided to rent a wave runner for an afternoon. Above is Papa John with Sydney and Savannah.

I have to admit that I wasn't sure what to expect from the whole family camping trip to Bear Lake. I hadn't been to Bear Lake since I was nine years old I think, and all I could remember was playing in dad's canoe and playing in the sand. Very very vague memories. Anyways, as I drove over the top of Logan Canyon and descended the mountain, I decided that Logan Canyon is possibly one of the most beautiful places on Earth. We stayed at the KOA campground which was really fun. The grass was green, there were nice shade trees and regardless of what all the Utah people say, I think the camp spots were huge. Well, compared to the beach camping down here in California anyways. The campground had a nice pool, grocery store, playground, those six seat bikes for rent, and the kids were able to go on a fun tractor ride around the campground.

The time in Utah was a lot of fun too. We were able to spend time with all the cousins and got to go to an awesome pizza place that puts Chuckee Cheese to shame (thanks Brandt and Soupie).

Anyways, we will update some more of the fun things we have been up to in the past month or so. Tomorrow we are heading to Disneyland for a day of fun with the kids. We also have a camping trip to Carpinteria coming up so keep checking up on us and we will do better to keep current with our blog.
