I am fully aware of how long it has been since I last updated this old blahg. You know how it is after one week, two weeks, a month goes by, you're not really sure where start. So, how about a little Birthday montage? Summertime is birthday time for this family. So much so, that when I count another year and scrape the last bite of pie off my plate, my mother-in-law exclaims, "Thank goodness all the Birthdays are over for a while."
Priya had a big bash for her 5th birthday on June 14. She wanted to have a "girl party" and a "cousin party". I would, of course, have thrown two separate parties and cooked food for 20 people twice, because, well, I like to overdo it. My wise sister-in-law, who was also turning another year older on June 14, suggested we have the two parties at the same time. Girls at my house...and boys at the park (I live across the street from the park). The girls sat and giggled and played for a while...and then we took a spectacular strawberry cake over the park to meet up with the boys and stuff our faces. A party success story.
What's your favorite birthday treat? Does your family have a birthday cluster that keeps the cake-baker on her toes? Have you ever had a Colorado peach? (I think we're on our 5th 20lb box and I haven't frozen any).
