Cake Course #2

I just finished my last cake class for course 2. I really enjoyed this course! We learned how to make about 8 different types of flowers. It was a lot of fun to be able to make something so pretty and have it turn out like it is supposed to! Here are some pictures of my final cake that had all of my flowers on it. Starting course 3 next week!

This is what happens when you let Cale feed himself!

Fair Time!

As a kid I can remember looking forward to the fair every year! It was always so much fun. Even as an adult I always enjoyed going, not for the rides, but for the food! This year I was excited to take Cale. We took him last year, but he was still too little to do anything. He couldn't ride much this year either, but the Merry-go-Round was just enough!

We started out with the animals. Cale is very cautious of any animal. He likes them from a distance, but not close up. This was no different. He did great until we got to close. He did like the "babbits" and the "burds". Both the chickens and rabbits were in their own cages and I guess that made him feel safe.

After that we had to stop and let him "drive" the golf carts.

Then we were off to ride. Cale was so funny. He never got excited at all, but he cried every time we had to get off the rides!

Papa and Granny insisted that Cale had to win a prize. So they picked the duck game so that Cale could just grab a duck and win a prize. Well, Cale wanted to play in the water instead of grabbing a duck!

Here he is with his prize (that is deflated already!).
Playing another game...
It was starting to get too cold, so we decided to head out. On the way out we stopped to see Aunt Valerie at her booth.

In the truck and out of the cold!

Catch-up Time

I have decided to make myself sit down and catch up on my blog today! I feel like such a slacker with my blogging! I can say though that I am not slacking because I am lazy, I am slacking because I am so BUSY! I am trying to manage it all and still stay sane!

So today is all about catching up. On my last post I said that my little man was taking steps....well that was short lived. Who needs to walk when you can ride? His riding toy is his new favorite. It took him a while to figure out how it worked, but now he is everywhere. He can get on and off by himself and he even knows when to go backwards or turn around to keep from getting stuck. He is a mess!

Occasionally he ends up on it backwards, but it doesn't seem to bother him!

For the last Gator game we went to Jason and Jenny's. We had not seen them in about a month and thought it would be fun to let the boys play. Cale loved the tunnel. But playing peek-a-boo in it was about all the playing he would do with it. Even though Brody showed him how to crawl through it several times, he never got brave enough to try!

Well folks....that is all the time I have for today. I will be back again soon!
