Summer = birthdays and swimming

First and foremost, it was my mom's birthday! We celebrated with our usual traditions of birthday cake and the birthday girl picking the dinner. I am proud to say that I made my mom's birthday cake... Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting! It was a great accomplishment. Talan got a practice round of blowing out candles for his birthday next week!
Last Monday I randomly decided to get in the car and drive to Phoenix. I stayed with Moni and Kalli for a few days. We had a fantastic time catching some rays by the pool, using the diving board a large number of times, and shopping! It was a needed "get out of town" trip for me and I'm glad I went. By the way, we watched Kung Fu Panda which happened to be hilarious!
We struggled to get a shot with both of us in the air. The above image is the last of many efforts to get an action shot!!! Right after this shot was taken I landed so hard in the water I hurt my back!
