Birthday Weekend

This weekend we travelled to Dallas to celebrate some very special family birthdays. Our niece, Cameron, turned 5 and Grandmommy turned 92. Family gathered from near and far to celebrate the two birthday girls.

The celebrations kicked off Saturday with Cameron's rainbow themed party. This party was sooooo cute and sooooo Cameron. Kristen thought of every detail and did everything herself - from the decor, to the craft, to the food, even the rainbow layer cake. It was all so lovingly thought out and fun. I wish that I had taken pictures, but here are a few that Kristen shared on Pinterest . . .

Can you believe Kristen made this shirt!? So cute!

Isn't the spread colorful and cute? Each layer of the cake was a different color of the rainbow.

Cameron's birthday party was followed by dinner at a Waldrep Family Favorite - Mi Cocina - YUM! Then Sunday we celebrated Grandmommy's birthday with a comfort food family brunch. On the menu? Grandmommy's favorites - pot roast, brussel sprouts, fruit salad and carrot cake. My favorite part of the meal (aside from dessert of course!)? The appetizers - smoked salmon dip and bacon wrapped dates with manchego and sweet pepper stuffing. I can't wait to get Kathryn's recipes for these scrumptious bites!
