All the things we've been up to for the last 10 days...

We have been busy thanks to Peter's graduation and Sarah's birthday and my mom's birthday.

First up was my mom's birthday.  She turned 78 on May 31st but we celebrated on Sunday, May 30th.  My brother treated us all to lunch at Firebird's to celebrate and then we came home for cake and presents.

I baked the cake and Sarah decorated it. Later on Sunday afternoon, Cathy, Dan's sister arrived and that evening we had a fire in the fire pit and made s'mores.

Then on Memorial Day, Dan, Sarah, and Cathy went for a bike ride around Salem Lake and then later that evening we had a cook out and my mom and brother joined us.

In addition to the normal cookout food of hamburgers, hot dogs, my mom's famous baked beans and corn and tomato salad, I made this charcuterie board:

On Tuesday morning, Sarah had school, so Dan, Cathy, Peter, and I, headed to Hanging Rock to hike.  The hike was strenuous but the views up there are always gorgeous:

And then of course, we came home, got dressed and went to Peter's graduation! After which, we went to a late dinner at the Cheesecake Factory!  YUM!

And then Friday, June 4th was Sarah's 17th birthday.  On Friday night, we went to dinner at Ryan's Steakhouse to celebrate Peter's graduation and Sarah's birthday. The only picture I got of the evening was my food:

The picture doesn't do it justice but trust me, it was delicious!

On Sunday, we celebrated Sarah's birthday with lunch, cake, and presents at mom's house.

Looks like someone has been a very good girl this year!  :)

And that's what we've been up to this past week and a half!

The pics of the hike are awesome. And that must be close to home. Sweet. Of course I'm also a sucker for an amazing cake. That is a lot of cake in a short time. Dang gluten, how I miss thee. Looks like a wonderful, festive time.
