cupcakes and waterparks

This afternoon the girls made cupcakes("pink-licious") and then shared them with the boys when they got home from school. I finally tried my hand at homeade icing and it was very yummy- however... I accidentally turned off the oven before I put the cupcakes in and they were obviously not done in 17 mintes when I discovered what had happened. So then I turned it on and they baked while the oven was preheating! After all was said and done- half the cupcakes were over done on the bottom and the other half were pale and flat-ish. Oh well, the kids sure didn't seem to notice or mind. They were so cute putting all the ingredients in and running the mixer.

Then tonight we went out to Casselton(15 minutes away) for supper and fun at the waterpark. We swam for 2 1/2 hours and the kids were in the water the entire time! They went down the slides over and over- even Julia and Mary Beth! It was the perfect activity since all the kids LOVE swimming so much. Great memories made... Two little girls fell asleep in the car on the ride home and were a bit cranky when ripped out of the warm van to the freezing cold. They all had a snack of cereal and went to bed- lets hope they sleep in tomorrow since it was about 10:30 or so when they got to bed!
Sarah and I are now watching the Olympics(women's free skate) that we recorded- love it!
