For my granddaughter’s 5th birthday I night her the Bakerells Cake Pops Kit with the four different press molds. Before she came over I made the filling, and yesterday we pressed all of it into the different shapes. Today, after a sleepover, we dipped and she decorated almost all of them by herself. Being a child that marches to the best of her own drum, they look nothing like the suggested designs on the included laminated instructions but after 3 hours of watching her play You Tube Show while she’s dipping and decorating … Best day this summer!!! And since I can’t share a picture here, I’m going to try to share one on Bakerella’s page:)

Oh such a lovely treat!
The funniest thing so far this summer was jumping from a 11 meters high cliff down in perfectly clear water in an old lime pit. A wonderful day with wonderful cousins!

Wow this looks amazing. This summer I have been au-pairing in Spain for two really cute girls. They also really love baking and getting creative. So far we have made cupcake cake-pops and we made the oreo ice-cream treats just yesterday! :) Maybe if I win this we can make our own ice-cream too! :)

On the 4th of July my family and I had a family picnic at a park. We made BBQ and there was so much food to choose from. And of course, there was a great selection of desserts too. Yummm. We had such a great time!

Fiona said...

Are non-US residents eligible? I’m from Australia but I’d love to win – although having my own supply of delicious icecream could be a very dangerous thing! Something both fun and exciting I did this summer was buy a coffee van business – and the fun has continued since I’m still having a great time running it :)

Dear friends bought a cabin in northern Michigan and my husband and I spent the most relaxing, enjoyable weekend with them! Boating, sitting by a campfire, fish fry, playing cards, etc. Only thing that would have made it better would have been a Cuisinart ice cream maker! :-)

I’ve been trying to relax at the beach – it’s hard to do with a toddler and an infant. But at least it’s been fun!

Fun thing I’ve done this summer? Well, I’m packing to move. Most people find packing dreadful but I actually enjoy it. It’s a great time to purge of old things weighing you down and start fresh.

Me and my family – hubbs + 3 kids, aged 9, 5 & 1 – drove almost 2,000km’s round trip to New York City to watch a dear, dear friend get married. It was crazy – because I’m a terrible traveller – but once we were going, it was actually amazing. Loved the road trip, and I really loved watching my friend hitch her wagon to a wonderful man.

We hosted a Gender reveal party, for my best friends. It was a pool party! When Teams were formed according to the guests guess, 6 of us were on team pink (including the mommy, who didn’t know the gender) and over 30 guests on team Blue…imagine everyone’s faces, when we saw the “its a girl” balloon coming out of the box!!!!

This summer I found my “inner kid” again–I ran in my very first 5K–a Color Me Rad event. I bounced in a trampoline park. I played in the sprinklers with my kids. I slid down water slides. I walked outside barefoot–in the rain. I caught lightning bugs and put them in a mason jar. I ate sprinkle covered ice cream cones. I’ve found my inner “kid” again….and it’s been GREAT!!! :-)

I haven’t done too much fun stuff this summer because we just moved… its been endless packing then unpacking. Something fun I did do that wasn’t moving related was canoeing on a lake! The weather was perfect and the lake was very beautiful.

I hope I win, it’s my hubby’s birthday today and this would be such an awesome present for him! He loves ice cream!

This summer has been challenging……my husband is active duty Army and is preparing to deploy so I have made the most of the summer for my kids…..we have taught our 6 yr old how to swim, I’ve been testing new recipes so my huney will have sweet dreams while he is gone and our final project is building our own furniture as a family that ice cream maker would definitely round out our nights after working hard on building furniture.

All I’ve been doing this summer is work and hang out at the beach. I hate to get a tan but despite loading up on sunblock, I’m darker than I’d like to be but the beach is irresistible. I’ll also be going to camping in 2 weeks, can’t wait for that to happen.
