Birthdays: Hope Floats & Root Beer Floats

Destiny turned 11 (Happy Blogged Birthday, Destiny!), and we had our usual root beer floats. With this many birthdays in a row, we don't make cakes for each special day. (We'd be lucky to finish one before the next one needed to be baked.) So we do root beer floats. Equally tasty and special, especially for summer babies.

We had a relatively normal day, 'cept for the floats and a visit from Grandma Kathy and Grandpa Dave.

Destiny, like all kids, was eager for presents, but she knew she'd have to wait for Friday night when we travel to Wisconsin for the party there -- and for our party at the house on the 30th (for the North Dakota contingent). Both of these are cake events.

On Friday, after a 10 hour drive, we picked-up Hunter and went to my sister's to celebrate all three of the kids' birthdays, along with anniversaries, and Father's Day. My sister ordered a cake with "Happy Birthday, Anniversary and Father's Day" on it. All that was missing was the 4th of July. ;)

It was wonderful -- as it always is. My sister and her husband are wonderful entertainers in their home. They have a huge house that our kids always talk about on the way home. :sigh: We ate and ate and then opened presents and had cake. Then back to my parent's house to spend the night... From there it got interesting...
