Weekend in the woods

Last Sunday was my little brother's 30th birthday (which means I'm really old, doesn't it? sigh...) We had a party for him in the woods. My family likes to do outdoor celebrations in the winter for some reason... We like to stand around, freezing, huddled about the fire with wieners on sticks. It's fun for us. No, seriously. It is! We roast marshmallows, too. And burn our tongues on hot chocolate in travel mugs. And then we eat cake.

Mmm, birthday hot dogs.

Enjoying the river a lot more than we did last time we were here for a family birthday. No dead salmon stinking the place up!

The cousins love to climb the mossy trees.

And crawl inside tree stumps.

Luke is a bit of an A-Team fan. Remember the A-Team? If you had a problem, if no one else could help, and if you could find them, maybe you could hire the A-Team. My sister-in-law, Linda, made Luke this fab van-shaped cake. Isn't it awesome?

Hee hee! Love it, Linda.


  1. I totally missed what the writing said on that cake! She's hilarious! And I concur... we do love a good get together in the woods mid winter, don't we? Good thing we don't live anywhere else in Canada. Nothing beats standing around a smoky fire, roasting weinies, with semi-frozen hands. (Except maybe a holiday ham.)

  2. Nothing beats a holiday ham. We should bring one to our next outdoor winter family get-together...

  3. Cake making seems to be a family skill set! Wow! Really showing our age if we are the original A-team fans! hee hee

    PS: Can't get over how much Sawyer seems to have grown and changed recently xx

  4. OMG..that cake is priceless! Love it! Glad you had a nice time!

  5. what AWESOME cakes! i love it :) your sister-in-law is a culinary goddess!

    and the party itself looks like a lot of fun.

    happy 30 to your baby brother (you are NOT old! i would call you a MILTH but that sounds terrible for a sweet Mum like you. still i giggled, sorry!)


Yay! I love comments.
