Blake & Rachel's Wedding

September 4, 2010
I can't believe my little brother is married. I am so happy for him and his new beautiful bride, Rachel. It was so much fun getting to be a part of their big day. The wedding and reception was held at our grandparents house in Anaheim Hills. The wedding was absolutely beautiful! Below are some pictures from the wedding.

August Birthdays

August is a big month for us with birthday's. First Jared's little brother, Jake, turned 3 years old on August 2. Then, my Dad turned 50 on August 12, Jared turned 25 on August 16, and my little brother, Blake, turned 22 on August 20.

Jared and I decided to take Jake to Disneyland for his birthday since he could still get in for free. It was so much fun to be at Disneyland with a little kid. We went on the Winnie the Pooh ride, Dumbo, the Carosel, and the Tea Cups. Jake's favorite ride (and mine) was the Winnie the Pooh ride. We got some fun pictures of our adventure.

For Jared's birthday we went to Hibachi Steak House with his parents and later in the week we celebrated with his family. I decided to make the cake. I thought I would be creative and make him a surf board cake. I wasn't too proud of it, but it was the first cake I carved, so that has to count for something.

Later that month we had a family party to celebrate all of the August birthdays. Usually my grandma makes the birthday cakes but she decided to let me do it this year. My cake was really yummy. I made a white cake with strawberries and homemade buttercream frosting. Yum!
