Pretty Candace Bear
I took this pic at the beach and the sun was behind her and made it look so cool.As you all probably know Rick loves wheat grass juice and is a firm believer in its healthy properties and would drink it everyday if he could. Well, he hasn't been able to drink it daily since we moved out of our house in Poway back at the end of August last year. Well, now that we have a new house he has been begging me to buy some wheat so he can get started on it again. So after several weeks of him asking, I finally did it...not that I didn't want to or anything, but I just really didn't even know where I was going to get any. Then as a surprise for him, I started it for him and didn't tell him till he got home the next time. He was surprised...and happy! It was a labour of love! I keep laughing because of when Rick had wheat grass at Steve n'Lynne's...How patient Lynne was with him and his grass!
Immediately after planting
Kissing the wheat grass
Finally, these are pics of this cool contraption Rick bought online from a surf gear shop. He took his board down to the servo (aussie for gas station) and he said he was quite the attraction. People couldn't stop staring and pointing. There was even a kid who said to his mom, "Look mommy! Look at that guy!" Too funny. My funny guy...
I can't believe I have an 11 year old! Shockin! Well, 2 birthdays down, 1 to go. I made 2 cakes for Canny's b-day. One for her to take to school and one for her party here at home. She's also convinced me to let her have a friend birthday party which will be on Friday. I should just say no to friend parties forever cause I hate putting them on. But this one will be a sleepover and then off to the beach on Saturday morning. Well, I took Candace on a little shopping spree and she got a shirt and sweats, a watch set with earings and a little photo frame, a pair of emerald birthstone earings (from Mesa), some lollies (aussie for candies...from Blaze), some books from her good friend Ellie in California and something else I can't remember right now... Hey wait, didn't I say that on Mesa's birthday post as well? hmmm...seems there's a pattern here. Here are the cakes...

This is her birthday cake. Brownies with ice cream and chocolate sauce. Yah, what's up with that anyways? Well, I ended up making them for a YW activity that never happened. Two huge pans full of them! So we had to get rid of them somehow! Oh well, I'm not complaining.
Her cartwheels have improved a thousand percent over the last few months as well. She literally just does cartwheels without notice and its quite funny. I've learned to just let her do them even in the house because it was way too annoying to have to tell her 10,000 times a day not to!
