Spring Break



We are lucky enough to have our grands visiting this week; our grandson's Spring break and the granddaughters flew down to see him for a few days since their break isn't until April.  It's been fun to have these three here and is the reason I haven't been posting:-D

The weather has been beautiful and days were spent outside.  We have a wonderful park that we went to--Pullen Park and the kids enjoyed climbing and just appreciating the sunny weather. (They live in areas where winter continues to hang on!)

The girls left on Tuesday, but we packed a lot of fun into those four days they were here!

Our grandson and I made pizza last night and a Classic Vanilla Bundt Cake that was wonderful with fresh strawberries.  The recipe for the cake is by King Arthur Flour and I've given the link if you're interested in a cake for those summer berries.

I'll be catching up with everyone soon--our grandson leaves tomorrow evening.

  1. What a perfect combination ~ your visiting grand children and baking! Syrupy strawberries seem to go very nicely with many cakes, I think, and that looks like the perfect cake to me.
