June Recap

June has been a whirlwind of activity.  It seems like only yesterday the kids were glad that summer break was beginning and now the first month has past.  We have been a busy bunch here.
 June has a few celebrations for us.  We celebrated Father's Day followed by our daughter's 18th birthday. We took her to an Japanese Hibachi and Sushi bar.  She had always wanted to go.  It was wonderful.  The food was so good and the chef was fun to interact with. We also had a graduation dinner for our daughter.  It was small, it's what she chose.
 A few simple decorations for her big day.  Love those pompoms.

This past week hosted a 4th of July cookout.  My brother usually hosts one but this year he was taking a break so we jumped in and decided to do it.  It was short notice and we were scurrying to get things prepared in time.
This cake was a must.  So patriotic and the best part is it is so easy.  You can find it here.  Betty Crocker to save the day.

I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July.
