Block Party and Answer to the Joke of the Week

Hello! How are you all doing today? Good, I hope! So today we are having a block party in my neighborhood. We have the largest yard in the area, so we are hosting it! It is also a potluck and I made my dad's favorite chocolate cake. If you want the recipe please go to my mom's blog:

It is the most amazing chocolate cake ever, and we have it at all our birthday parties. Please also take some time to visit my mom's great blog. She has been blogging for about three years know and has too many recipes to count.
I am terrible at frosting a cake but here is a picture of my brother's birthday cake. Or one of many, I should say!

 Another exciting event to day is our city's annual street festival. It is one of my favorite events of the whole year. All the local business by tables and there candy and toys and balloons... Ahh, childhood.

Breaking News: The cake came out of the oven and reportedly looks good.

Also, you probably want to know who got the answer correct or the Joke of the Week. The joke was:
                                                  "What time of the day was Adam created?"

And the winner is...................................... SAILFISH! Congrats, Sailfish! Just so you know, everyone, Sailfish answered the joke with:
                                                                                     "A little before Eve" 
 Good job y'all and I will be releasing the next joke to the public on Monday! Have a great weekend!

My Tools

Hi, everyone! Hope you are having a great day! I woke to a bright sunrise that lit up our whole living room. Lot's of oranges and, thankfully, no pinks.

                                                                " Pink skies at night, sailor's delight;
                                                                  Pink skies in the morning, sailor's warning."

As I have told you, I love photography. However, I do not have an amazingly expensive, 12- inch lens, camera. In fact I have this wonderful little Sony my dad got me for Christmas. And, no, I did not take this picture:

I think that this is the best thing I have ever gotten for Christmas. We bought at the Best Buy (or Buy More, as we call it) and the same night, got to go to a concert and got some really nice photos and videos.

 I have been just randomly taking pictures since I was probably, just five. I was using my mom almost- ancient Canon camera. I would still be using it if it didn't break down on me!

 Thank you for visiting my blog! Go and be Blessed.

August 20th, 2014: Lovely Day

It was a beautiful day today. We did a lot of yard work and getting ready to do some camping! My dog had had some fleas so we put some diatomaceous earth (ground fossils) on her. Hopefully, it works before we go into the trailer for multiple days! Here is a picture of Lizzy in a deep sleep on the fireplace:
Lizzy is a miniature Australian shepherd. She is a beautiful, intelligent, sweet dog. My mom didn't like dogs until we had Lizzy. She was our first dog and now we will never be without one.

 My mom was also canning peaches today, so the whole house was so hot!

They are so good in the winter.

 We also have chickens. They are very average except for one beautiful Austolorp. She has soft black feathers that are green in the sunlight. My dad  says almost every day that the chicken could win blue. Our girls (as we call the chickens) often have to share nest boxes in our coop. Here are two girls duking out for the nest!
                                                                                        Have a great day,

  Here are the Blue Angels in Seattle practicing for Sea Fair Sunday!

 We took our 18 foot aluminum boat out on Lake Union the Friday before Sea Fair. I was so happy to have been able to have brought along my camera! It was so incredible to see these huge, loud jets flying over our heads. Such an incredible feeling!

       Good Laughs,
