blog neglect

So, I haven't blogged much lately and I apologize. That should change now that I'm off work for the summer!!! YAY!

I've kept busy lately with cupcakes and photos, I'll share those with you now.

Ok, lets see. We went to Ribfest last weekend. The only word to describe what we ate there was delicious. I had a pulled pork sandwich from Sgt. Oink's. Dave had a sandwich from another stand, which I don't remember the name. Connor had a few ribs from the same place Dave went to and Mason (who just likes to be different), had a corndog.

We sat in the shade on the west side of the park right by the Hot Waffle and Ice Cream Sandwich stand. My gosh this was genius!! Again, delicious works here!

I'll save you from the photos of me v. the bouncy castle at my nephews' birthday party. Let's just say that the bouncy castle won. I really didn't mean to go down the slide head first, I promise!!

I made ice cream cone cupcakes (vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting colored blue to look like the Connor's favorite ice cream - Blue Moon) for the Connor to take to school since he has a summer birthday. They came out perfect and were a big hit with his class. I also made the cookie dough cupcakes to take to work with me for my boss's summer birthday, but I don't have any pictures of those this time.

This past Wednesday, I took pictures for a friend whose son was graduating high school. We headed up to the Wintergreen Gorge cemetery and across the street from it because that was where she chose. I love the small waterfall out in front of the cemetery. These photos were a bit of a challenge for me since I'm barely 5'1" and he towered over me. I had to make sure to be on higher ground from him, or at least farther away. The majority of these were taken with my 50mm lense which I looooove!!

This past Friday was the last day of work for me for the summer. Now, to just stay out of trouble!

I'll leave you with these flowers. I really have no idea what they are but to me they look like fireworks. I took these the same night as the graduation photos and was playing around a little with DOF.

Ooooh! Cupcake Cones! YUM!

FYI, those are garlic flowers. (Yes, the root of that sweet firework flower is a garlic cluster), perhaps ornamental, though. My dad grows garlic in his garden and the flowers look just like that!

I've run into them a few times at cemeteries around here - I just love them!
