El Dorado Regional Park

First we went on a train ride...

... the kids loved it!

 However, they did not love me asking them to keep posing for pictures.

Play structures made of metal and sun equal a nice big blister on your hand.

Wyatt could hear the ocean in this antler at the Nature Center. : )

There were lots of pretty trails to walk on.

Spider Man birthday party

We celebrated Wyatt's birthday five weeks early and Nick's one week late. We do what we can to combine birthday parties around here. ; ) So that meant that Nick had to put up with a Spider Man cake, but as long as it was Grandma Cake, he wasn't complaining!

Making the Grandma Cake frosting.

We used to have to walk around the fireplace wall to see the guys watching sports... now we have front row seats! ; )

The birthday boys.

Red frosting has its drawbacks...
