We're Back!

Well we're back from our trip. Actually, we got back Sunday evening, but on Monday, I got a phone call that a cake was needed on Tuesday morning, and it was for a very good friend who works with my husband. It was both his 20th anniversary with the company, AND his 60th birthday. Even though it was short notice, and I'm trying to cut back on the cakes, I just couldn't let a stranger make this cake!

Russell is a fellow racing enthusiast and one of his favorite tracks is Laguna Seca in Monterey, CA, so my plan was to put a 3D map of that particular track on the cake. Then Ben pipes up with "Can't you make it a tire, then put the map of the track in the center of the tire?" Sure...why not. So, the track didn't end up being 3D, but it still came out pretty cute.

So, that's why I didn't show up here on Monday or Tuesday...I was trying to recover from a camping trip AND make a cake all at the same time!

But, I'm back now, and I know that it's "Works for me Wednesday", but it's also "Wordless Wednesday", and I decided this week to go "Wordless"....not doing so hot with that, am I? LOL.

Anyway...I was asked to post pictures of the camping trip here on ye olde blog, so I put them all on a slide show for your viewing pleasure. I didn't add music because I know that some of you are in places where you need to be quiet...but if you'd like some music, just click on my player above, choose your song, and voila! Some of the photos have captions/explanations. Some didn't need any. Enjoy!

the cake is awesome! Glad you had fun on your camping trip, but my hubby always says MY idea of roughing it is staying at the Holiday Inn! I am not an outdoor-sy girl!

Happy Easter, my friend!

LOVE the cake!

You're brave... four kids on a camping trip... count me out!

Looks like you all had fun, though.

Glad you're all back safe & sound.
