We were invited up to Tammy and Mark’s house for a BBQ on July 4th. Since we had gone up there already, the drive wasn’t so bad. Their house is perfect for entertaining and there was plenty of food and good people. I love any excuse to bake and tried 2 new recipes for me: ‘real’ strawberry cupcakes and strawberry lemonade cupcakes using the frosting from the 2nd cupcake recipe for both (of which I had trouble). Both were really good and got lots of praise despite the look of the frosting (which tasted good but didn’t look anything like the photo posted on that blog).
Tammy and Zack and friends. No shortage of babies and kids at this BBQ!
Alison, the tattoo artist!

My new tat to match the other one!
Quiet swing time
Sienna playing ball with a baby. She loves babies!
Tammy going around giving samples of bacon ice cream. You can see that Yves isn’t that excited to try it but he did and liked it!
Got cupcake frosting?
See how blah my frosting looked?
Filling for the Strawberry Lemonade cupcakes. This is the first time I had less than what the recipe said I would (I usually have more, way more!)
