Who Needs the Kwik-E-Mart?


7-Eleven dressed up a few of their stores around the country like Kwik-E-Mart from the TV show The Simpsons. Since we knew we would be in Denver, we decided to stop by and get a Squishee and some Buzz cola. We had a lot of fun!


Emmy’s Backyardigans Birthday Cake


A few months ago, Julia’s friend gave a class on cake decorating, so Julia was excited to use her newly-found skills to decorate a cake for Emmy’s birthday. The cake looks really, really good, and has a picture from Emmy’s favorite TV show, The Backyardigans. (Extra points if you can name the character). Doesn’t the cake look great? She did an excellent job. I’m sure Emmy will be very excited to eat it at her birthday party. Thanks for the help, Angela!


Rockies Rainout


Christian, Bruce, and I were all pretty excited for our tickets to the Rockies-Dodgers game that my mother-in-law gave us for Father’s day, but unfortunately the game was rained out. There was a ton of rain, and that part of Denver was under a flash flood watch. We were sad that we didn’t get to see the game, but we still had fun.



Harry Potter Day


On the night that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows came out, Christian and Emmy got dressed up in their Harry Potter costumes (Christian is Ron and Emmy is the Golden Snitch) and we waited for the book to be released at 12:01 at our local bookstore. Christian and I both said that the other would fall asleep before midnight, but we both stayed up. Julia is now almost finished with book 6, Christian is well into book 7, and I am have only four books to go. (As long as you count the ones I listened to on CD).
