A little weekend fun.

My second favorite hobby is baking... yummy!
Here is a super fun cake I made for a 3 year old's birthday.  Everything is edible except batman himself.

Yesterday we took the kids to the Potter Park Zoo... I did something I never do... I left my camera home.  Well- my good camera anyway.  I only had my phone with me.  At convention this year Stacey Julian talked about the importance of memories and scrapbooking what matters most.  Her comment on not needing a layout every single year of your trip to the pumpkin patch really hit home.  We go to a LOT of zoos.  Do I really need a layout of animal photos for every zoo we visit.  No, I really don't.  So I used my phone to snap photos of the kids feeding the birds, and the pony ride.  That's it.  No rhino photos.  No lion photos.  No photos at all except feeding the birds and riding the ponies.  I will save these photos for something else, but for now there will be no zoo layout in the works.  Kind of refreshing.  I will however show you what I have in mind for these photos in a few weeks...  so keep your eyes out.

In the meantime...
