Turning 34 Part II

We had a family get together on Sunday to celebrate Trav's birthday. Grandma and Grandpa Walker, Rose (Trav's sister) and Derek were there and we had a nice bbq and some cake (well sort of).
(Look closely and you will see that they all have the same smile!)

Relaxing outside while Grandpa cooks the food!

He is ready for action!

Look they have the same smile too!!! (I had to bribe him to sit down so I could take a picture.....he really wanted to flip the hamburgers krabby patties)

For his "offical" birthday cake I decided to try something new. Rose doesn't like cake much but loves I made a brownie cake! I cooked to pans of brownies and put them together! (It was hard to get the brownies out of the pan, but since it was still warm I could mold it a little.)

It turned out really good. It was really rich. I think if I did it again I would use a chocolate frosting because I like chocolate more.

Kimball really liked it

Derek liked it too....I think Barney would have liked it too but he didn't get any (the cat).

It's always nice to get together with family and chat and talk about different things and just spend time together. I love being close to family and getting together for weekends, Sunday dinners, games....well anything. What can I say I'm a family type of gal!

I am not a big cake fan either but will eat brownies anytime. That cake sounded awesome. I wish that we lived closer so that we could come do things with you guys.
