Inspired by their recent trip to Texas, my mom decided to throw Preston a Texas-themed family birthday party. After the cakes she made last year — the volcano cake and rainbow cake — she decided to keep it (semi) simple this year with a state of Texas cake.
Never one to settle for too simple, she bought the red and blue flecked cake mix that was everywhere right before the 4th of July.
She also made a Texas sheet cake (of course).
On Saturday, Eric and I went to a birthday party for a 2-year old, the son of one of Eric’s former coworkers.
It was a casual thing, and after socializing for a while and enjoying the delicious beef brisket and margaritas, ilooked like the kids were going to be playing games for a while before they did cake and presents. His coworker had said up front that we didn’t need to stay for the whole thing, so we decided to head out. On the way home, we wanted to stop for dessert, but the only thing that really sounded good was…birthday cake.
Totally awesome vs. rock bottom: stopping at the grocery store for a mini-cake and a carton of ice cream, even if you have nothing to celebrate?
I don’t even care! It was perfect!
