Getting Old

My youngest just turned 9.  It was very exciting in our house.  We baked a beach cake.  I made blue frosting, and attempted to make waves.  We sprinkled graham cracker crumbs over half the cake and washed some small plastic trees, a pirate, a seagull and stuck them on the cake.  (And you thought I didn't have mad cake decorating skills?  Whatever.)  Then my husband and I took her to Boston's Museum of Fine Arts.  A new Art of the America's Wing opened up and I've been dying to see it.

Elizabeth loves mummies, Egyptian art, Roman and Etruscan sculpture and pottery.  I showed her the European Impressionist room.  I love Monet.  I once paid $15 to enjoy three of his paintings in Las Vegas and it was worth every penny!  We ended the night with the model ships.  Elizabeth was enthralled!  She adored the museum.

Happy birthday, Elizabeth! Ahhh, you should have put a picture of the cake up so we could admire your mad cake skills!


My Rosie's first name is Elizabeth, so I think it's a pretty great name! :-)

I will try to post a picture. Unfortunately I don not have made computer/picture taking skills. And I agree Elizabeth is a nice day.

Ok, I just reread my comment and have a few spelling corrections.
#1 don = do
#2 day should actually be replaced with name. I have nothing more to say unless I missed another error (besides a comma).
