we were going to order a small plain white fondant cake and then add white ribbon and orchids to it, and then serve sheet cake. i couldnt stand the thought of spending $$$ for a cake that wasnt even going to be served so i practiced making my first fondant cake. delayna approved and now i will be making a wedding cake! two layers of which will be styrofoam. this picture isnt the greatest...and the brown ribbon will be white...and it will be on a nice cake stand. the cake stand from my wedding actually :)

we found a pretty good frozen custard place called "sweet berries". we hit it up twice the first day we were there. what??? we were on vacation.... and it was hot...and jack wanted it! it certainly didnt compare to my favorite place called nielsens in bountiful, but it was very very yummy!
while geocaching we found a SAWEEEEET park! it was amazing. everything at the park could spin...i LOVED it! oh yeah, and so did the kids. please dont mind the horrific tummy shot chris accidentally zooms in on...you may have nightmares...thanks chris
all in all it was a wonderful trip. we will certainly be making it again in the future. although we cant decide if it would be more fun with or without the kids :)

at the idaho falls zoo
they surprised aunt alli at work in rexburg...yes that is a wal-mart badge you spotted ;)
jack didnt want to get out of his usual morning workouts...
yes, jdawgs truly has the best hot dogs in the universe and here's the proof
when they got home, one of the first things chris said was, "i think i gained about 10 pounds" so you know they had a wonderful trip!
tomorrow we are all headed to siesta key for a couple days...stayed tuned for some pictures!!

ellie decided that while jack was gone, she was going to perfect the tantrum! she's very good at it!
bo and layna came over for stir-fry on monday night and we made real, homemade lemonade. im not talkin' squeeze it, add some sugar and youre done. no way. im talkin' about making a simple syrup then adding fresh lemon and lime juice, letting it refrigerate for a few hours, then adding the water and ice...yeah, i know, the real deal people! that took planning and preparation, which i am not really known for!
we did enjoy our time together but it will be nice to have the boys home, even if it is a day later then planned :)
