Okay, not junk. Not at all. But alliteration, you guys! And I get sick of titling these posts “miscellany” or “camera dump.” But anyway, here are all the fun pictures from June that didn’t already get their own blog post. Enjoy!
And blow out the candles. So we decided to experiment with the cake this year, and it came out YUMMY! I just used the recipe for chocolate cake and frosting off the back of the Hershey cocoa tin (also found here), but the secret was the filling. Kyle has invented this mousse stuff (it’s essentially instant pudding made with whipping cream instead of milk) that is divine, and that’s what I used (vanilla flavored). Kyle needs to blog the recipe, and when he does, I’ll link it (Edit: Link!). He also declared it’s even better the next day. It did not last long.
I’m the Primary secretary in our ward, and our chorister asked me to help out a few weeks ago. To help the kids review the song for Father’s Day, they got to put something in my hair for each line they remembered. Everybody had a lot of fun with it!
One afternoon, Heather came up to Kyle and said she wanted to marry him. (When I asked her what that meant, she said they dance!) So she put on her flower tiara thing and they danced. When I showed her this picture and asked her what it was, she said, “Me and daddy…being married…” in a sweet, sing-song voice, and she twirled away. She obviously has fond memories of this event.
And lastly, Heather had swim class the last two weeks in June. It was her first time not being in a parent/child class, and she loved it! They were in a 2-foot pool and the class was very small, so she had a lot of one-on-one time with the teacher. I love watching her learn new things!
