Chris had an externship with the orthodontic department at VCU so we spent a couple days in Richmond. We explored the bath temperature water and the sweet children's museum. We also saw Robin Hood the movie in an old-time playhouse. It was a pretty fun stay. After Richmond we were lucky enough to be invited to Norfolk with the Boekwegs to visit Linda and David. It was sooooo much fun. The beach was great aside from the horrible jelly fish and the really scary sting ray. We also went to the Zoo and the Azalea Gardens. It was wickedly hot, thankfully most outdoor attractions had some sort of waterpark to cool down in. It was really interesting to see where Grandpa Paul grew up. The last night we went to Virginia Beach to ride some "real" waves. Thankfully, Candice had the great idea of renting the pedal car, because that was probably the best part of the trip.

Lorenzo and Avery's Third Party

This was to be Lorenzo and Avery's last birthday party together. Soo.....Candice and I really put alot of work into it and I think that it turned out really, really cute. The kids loved it, and thats all that really mattered.....right? The whole party was based off the rainbow cake idea. The cake ended up being the biggest pain in my but. Thankfully, I have a wonderfully talented husband that took over just before I went crazy and threw it as far as I could. Deseree' was, as usual, an amazing helper.....THANK YOU!!!

P.S. If you ever decide to make this cake don't let it sit in 85 degree weather for three hours before you decide to cut into it......uggh!
