Motocross Mountain Bike Cake

Nicholas' Boy Scout fundraiser was last Saturday. The Boy Scouts and the Young Women prepared a taco dinner - and let me tell you, tacos prepared by people of Hispanic heritage are out of this world! The Young Women president is from Columbia, and her cooking is delicioso! The families who attended were all invited to donate home-baked treats for auctioning. Michael and I found a Motocross Mountain Bike Cake recipe on the Family Fun website.

It was super easy, and everyone thought that it was so difficult and complicated! It sold for the highest amount, and Michael and I are very proud of ourselves!

This is Michael with the woman who bought the cake. She was planning to give it to her son for Father's Day. What a gift! Now Michael wants me to make it for his birthday party this Saturday. Let the baking begin!

Happy Father's Day, Tony!

We woke up this morning and went downstairs to find Michael in the kitchen with a cookbook open. He was trying to figure out what to make for breakfast. When he decides to mix something and turn the burners of the stove on without adult supervision, we are in trouble! Anyway, he found a neat recipe for "Nutty Breakfast Rolls". They consisted of pancakes(which we had leftover from yesterday's breakfast), peanut butter, and bananas. I helped him heat the pancakes and spread peanut butter on each one, then fold an eighth of a banana into it. I am not a peanut butter fan, but the boys loved them!

Tony was very happy(I hope) that we gave him a BBQ grill basket, a panini maker, and a mesh back support.

After church, Michael brought home a candy lei from Primary for him. It was Saran Wrap with different candies rolled up inside with ribbon tied throughout it to separate the candies. Michael was convinced that Daddy was not going to want the chocolate, so he was ready to eat them before we got home. I convinced him to wait until we got home to let Dad make that decision. Of course Michael was right, and he and Dad had a good time taking the candies out and eating them!

Tony had a fantastic day!(I'll post pictures tomorrow)
