I was in charge of Sunday dinner. Here's what was on the menu: grilled lemon pepper chicken, corn on the cob, raspberry yummy salad, rolls, watermelon and some brazilian lemonade (from ourbestbites.com) to drink! I think everyone liked it. My mom is out of town and quite the cook, so I took it upon myself to try to get close to her standard.
I also made some festive cupcakes for dessert. I saw these cupcakes on someone's blog (sorry, can't remember which and I'm too lazy to look it up). Anyway I thought they were really cute!
I used a white cake mix and colored the batter in red white and blue but I didn't take a picture after cutting into it! Oops! And I used a chocolate star mold for the stars on top. They were pretty and yummy!
Last night we were lucky enough to see Stadium of Fire!! I have been once with my family, like 8 years ago probably.
Also performing was Jenny Oaks Baker on violin, the 5 Browns (pianists) and the Osmonds 2nd Generation. Everyone did a really great job. The boy scouts also had an eagle court of honor. They were celebrating 100 years of the boy scouts. They had all the eagle scouts in the audience stand up as part of it. They also had 4 jets fly over...very cool!!
And how can I forget the last performer? Carrie Underwood!! She was great! She probably sang about 12 songs. I thought she would only sing a few, but she kept on going! She sounded great and everyone had a good time.
Thanks to my dad for watching Molly and Emily and Zack for watching Alison! We are so grateful you helped us out so we could go!
Earlier in the day I got out the slip n slide for Molly. Of course it wasn't as warm as the days before, but still warm enough. We had to get her used to the idea, but then she had a great time.
And Alison just hung out like usual :) I think yesterday she found her voice. She has been making the craziest noises all of a sudden! It is so funny!!
