Last Thursday we celebrated my dad's 50th birthday but I've been so busy with school that I haven't had a chance to post about it. Mom made us all crab legs, shrimp, crab cakes, and corn. Kayla and I decorated with balloons, streamers, and pictures. Jacob loves birthdays so much, it doesn't even have to be his! Balloons and Cake... what more could a boy ask for?!

I had seen this gif online earlier and I thought it was pretty cool but kinda creepy. It's one of those photos that creeps me out but I can't stop looking at it. Who knew owls had 3 eyelids?! They have a top, bottom, and side eyelid. The side eyelid is called the nictitating membrane. The purpose of the side eyelid is to protect the eye and keep the surface clean. When the top eyelid closes that means the owl is blinking. When the bottom eyelid closes the owl is sleeping.
Check out my 'Did you know' tab on the side of my blog for more posts like this one. You just might learn something new.

Summer is great but it can get disgustingly hot. There is nothing more uncomfortable than to be in 90 degree weather with nothing to do. Here are five ways to beat the heat all summer long while having fun!
1. Find a pool! There's nothing better than to splash in a pool full of nice cool water on a hot summer's day.
2. Water Fight!!!!!! Gather all of your friends for a giant water fight. It's a chance to interact with other people and cool off at the same time.
3. Trampoline! If you have a trampoline, jump on it while the sprinklers are facing you.... you'll thank me later.
4. Frozen Goods!!!! Indulge in some frozen treats this summer such as ice cream or frozen yogurt.
5. DRINK WATER! Keep hydrated all summer long by drinking plenty of ice water.

How do you stay cool in the summer?

I am on a roll!!! I love experimenting and making new drinks. This first drink is a Snickers Milkshake. A few big scoops of vanilla ice cream, half a cup of milk, 3 pieces of snickers (mini), and a tablespoon of chocolate syrup all blended together. It's really rich and decadent but oh so delicious. Beware: your kids just may get a sugar high.

Homemade copy of Mcdonald's Caramel Frappe.
This was a big hit today. The teenagers loved it and Jacob felt like a man drinking it. (of course, he didn't have coffee in his)
I will have the recipe for this one up at a later date!
