we had a blast at the water park. we went from 11am-1pm then left to eat lunch and take naps. then we went back from 5pm-8:30pm. it was a great day.
samantha went on this slide about 1,000,000,000 times!!
at the top of this tower there was a huge bucket that would slowly fill up with water and then dump out. derek and the girls loved getting drenched by all the water.alright, now on to the cake! growing up in my family it was a given that you were going to have an ugly birthday cake. i don't know why, but we always had cake catastophes!!! big chunks missing and the hole filled with frosting, icing it before the cake had time to cool enought, so big chunks of cake mixed in the frosting...you get the point. well, since having kids i've always bought them a wal-mart cake, or a dairy queen ice cream cake...etc. this year i just decided to make one. ha ha ha big mistake. apparently ugly cakes run in my blood!!!
when katelyn saw it she didn't know how to react!! it was pretty funny. i do have to say that even though it was ugly there wasn't one crumb left.
the night before was the night of the tornado. our friends' basement got flooded because of all the rain. so after church derek and a bunch of the elders went to help them shop vac and tear out the carpet. we ended up having a huge spaghetti dinner with them and 2 other families for katelyn's birthday dinner. luckily it's easy to double crock pot spaghetti sauce and cook a bunch of noodles. maybe a little too easy, since i came home with about 10 gallons of leftovers!!! i think katleyn had a good day/weekend.
(oh, on saturday we took the kids to see kung fu panda. IT'S SO GOOD!! take your kids...it's totally worth it.)
