Birthday Celebration!

July 17, 2013

Yesterday, we had reason to celebrate: Katherine and Kevin arrived, along with Sophie and Baby Dylan!

The girls were ready to start playing:

…but Lila was also *pretty* interested in baby Dylan:

We had to practice “gentle” with Lila quite a few times.  Winking smile 

Ryan and I were in charge of dinner, so we cooked up some shrimp po-boys for everyone, along with coleslaw and tater tots:

But the real star of the meal was the chocolate sheet cake that my mom and I made for my sister’s birthday:

SO. GOOD.  This is the cake that we had for almost EVERY single birthday growing up, and you just can’t beat it.  Especially when it’s served with a side of Bluebell vanilla ice cream.  Smile 

It looks like another day of sunshine here—so thankful for the great weather we’ve had on the trip so far! I hope it continues!

Have a great day!

    Shrimp po boys?! They were smart to choose the two of you for meal prep, YUM! And the sheet cake looks amazing too (although I’m s sucker for white cake with chocolate icing).
