Milestone Birthdays and Gluten Free Cake

This past weekend we celebrated my sister and my father's birthdays with a joint birthday party. My sister and my dad were born on the same date in July, and both celebrated milestone birthdays this year. My sister turned 30 and my dad turned 65. My mom and I decided to prepare a big party for them both. We chose to do something a little different this year, since we typically just have an outdoor BBQ with hamburgers and steaks. Instead, we hired a catering service called La Cantina Catering to come and prepare the main meal for us, while we provided the appetizers and dessert.

An Unexpected Day Out

Yesterday we had an appointment for someone to come and see our house, so we decided to take the kids out for a treat. Our gluten free son was completely dairy free for a long time, but is now able to digest small amounts of dairy, so we took him to Dairy Queen. I checked out the Dairy Queen Gluten Free menu online, and discovered a few items he could eat.  I have to admit, I got a little sad when I asked him if he wanted a sundae and he didn't know what one was.

Wordless Wednesday!

I haven't posted a Wordless Wednesday post in a while, but the urge struck me today, so here you go! Some shots from the last few months.

Enjoying a mini-cone on a hot day!
