Carlie and Donny working together to make a chocolate birthday cake for Donny’s birthday.
On the last night Mom and Dad Bryan were camping out at the lake, we went out to visit them for supper and the evening. Naturally it was very warm but it was a wonderful evening together with s’mores and Mom’s famous mountain pies. There is nothing that Carlie and Donny enjoy more than camping and we hear them playing together that they are going camping about everyday. I will often go to put them to bed only to find Donny’s little car bed piled high with every kind of odds and ends. I asked them why they always do this and they told me they pack the car to go camping.
Carlie Jane was tired and went over to rest on Daddy while he toasted her marshmallow.
One Donny’s actual birthday we went out to Destin to Build a Bear and Carlie made a Nemo she named “Fish” and Donny made a Dory he names “Blue”. We arrived home late from that trip and Carlie and Donny were fighting a bad cold so we saved the birthday cake for the next day when everyone we feeling a bit better.
Donny’s cake we made filled with a surprise M&M center, chocolate cake, and peanut butter frosting. Carlie Jane and Donny would often just ask for a few M&M’s for dessert rather than asking for a piece of cake.
Dad made Donny a lobster boat for his birthday. Donny was so excited and he even took the boat to bed with him for several days.
