All of my kids LOVE to bake/cook in the kitchen.....this chocolate cake was labeled THE best chocolate cake ever on the kevin&amanda blog, so Jacob and I (Jacob LOVES chocolate!) had to put this to the test....and yes, I would definately say that this chocolate cake is YUMMY!! but Jacob and I are still open minded about trying other recipes on our quest to find the best chocolate cake EVER!! ....and yes, this is a terrible frosting job

Jared and Megan enjoy (prefer) to wake up early....this has been a fact of life for some time....one that I am still not used to....for summer fun, the two have worked out a morning schedule where they (spring) out of bed-very early to go walk/run/jog.....then they return home full of early morning energy to make a big pancake and eggs breakfast for the entire family....you notice there are no pictures of this activity....b/c their photographer is NOT an early bird....nor is she even coherent the first while she is out of bed....how special for them to have this morning activity.....although I would appreciate it if they could be a little less sunshiney for those of us who are NOT early birds :)
If you look closely, Travis has his tool belt fully loaded with dad's tools.....this day was a hot day....and Travis had spent all day helping Jared build some cabinets- all on his own perogotive....it's so cute watching Travis shadow Jared.....he is a hard worker just like his dad :)
