Happy Birthday and Happy Fourth!

Besides being the Fourth of July, today is my sweet son's birthday.  He has always been my "Firecracker Baby"!  

At the risk of giving away my age, let's just say that he left his 20s yesterday.  How could I have a child who is that old?  Unbelievable!

My son's AMAZING AND AWESOME girlfriend gave him a surprise party.  We floated around Lake Travis just outside of Austin, Texas, on a barge.  What fun!  

Here's a picture of Son as he realized that we were all there waiting for him:

The sweet couple.  Isn't she pretty?

And since you were asking…Yes, I'm the one who made the cake.  It's one of Ina Garten's and the recipe is HERE.  

Hope you have a wonderful holiday!
