Today is my dad's birthday
Yesterday was the real celebration...but now that my parent's actually live "in town"
It was no big deal to get everyone together again today
So here is the weekend wrap up of Myk being in town and my dad turning 56!
First, Myk came to our house and made the most amazing cake (and we helped!!!)
Oh and the little hippie made us buy certified organic, cage free eggs
(After reading an article all about eggs in the Spirit magazine on the plane)
And when everyone loved the cake she swore the eggs are what made the difference
I love my little Cali sister!!! Please don't be mad we tease you Myk because you are wonderful
And the cake really did taste great...although I will never get behind coconut milk Myk so stop trying!
That's right...these cakes got "neon" food coloring
Adding butter cream frosting
The naked stack...All 6 layers
Myk adding the frosting, piping, and fresh strawberries
Ta-da the finished masterpiece...this seriously took her all day!!!
Oh yeah, and this is what I was up to...wrapping up all of our gag gifts
Don;t worry we also got him some rose bushes so he can start a garden at the new house
My dad had grown beautiful roses in our last 2 houses and this one will be no different
After the day of present buying and cake making we all met at Benihana for Bob's birthday dinner
And us with the best waiter ever...and possibly Myk's future husband?!?!?
Kipp and Nickee
Mom, dad, Myk's pretend significant other, and Myk...oh the 7th wheel
The Bob and Myk
And we all sing Happy Birthday to dad and have our first family celebration in the new house
And here is one last look at Myk's cake...pretty great right
So there it is; The first birthday in my parent's new house
I think the standards have been set pretty high!
