Our beach baby! We went to the beach the other day, I clearly wasn't thinking, it was the first day off school for the grade 12 students! We got there early and there were a few here and there but by 11 am the beach was packed!
I took Sugar into the water and I winced with every step but she trotted in like it was as warm as bath water. She would have thought nothing of walking out til she was up to her neck. Totally fearless! She really enjoyed her first beach day. We had snacks, toys, she made a couple of friends and we got to play in the water. I brought a book with me.....lol..not sure what I was thinking, it wasn't in the least bit relaxing but it sure was fun!
We went to the nursery and bought our seed and plants for the veggie garden. The lady that worked there asked if she could give Sugar some of her very own seeds. She picked the green string beans and could hardly wait to pot them. I figured we'd put them in jiffy pots for now until we get the rest of the rows ready in the garden. Give them a head start. We planted the lettuce so far, perhaps tomorrow we'll get the rest of the veggies planted.
Our niece Miss D turned 7 on the weekend. Sugar loves her cousins soooo much.
I made my first red velvet pound cake and I just love the color! It turned out perfect!
I originally planed on making this cake to celebrate our 1 year referral anniversary but decided to instead give it to the teachers at Chinese school. Last Saturday was their last teaching day for the summer. I thought it would be a nice thank you from the kids and us parents.
