"Sweet Weekend"

What a "sweet" weekend this has been despite the fact that Larry had to work both days. Yesterday, we celebrated Kelly's oldest daughter's birthday. Nikki, who will be 12 next Saturday, had a "Hannah Montana" party. As part of her gift, I made her cake which was an electric guitar. All the girls loved it!

We ended the weekend with our Father's Day celebration. Lunch was paninis followed by a "hamburger" cake made with the men in mind! Cake, two days in a row, what was I thinking?! The kids will be on a sugar high for a week!

Mid-Week Vacation

To say that the Smith family has been a little restless in Smithfield lately would be an understatement! We have desperately been looking for some place to go and something to do without breaking the bank. Lucky for us, we found a great deal for Great Wolf Lodge in Williamsburg through Larry's employee discount program at work. Reservations were made and off we went. We only stayed one night but we packed a lot into our time there! The kids had a blast and so did their parents!!! I can not say enough great things about the Lodge and we look forward to returning soon! Enjoy the pictures!
