My Summer Baby!

Yummy Gummy Bear Birthday Cake Recipe coming soon!
It's my son's birthday!  I can't believe he's 12 years old.  I feel like I just had him not too long ago.  Now, he's almost as tall as I am.  I'm only 5'8", but still I think that's tall for a child.  We started the day out with Tennis camp.  I signed both him and his brother up for lessons this summer.  I want them to be well-rounded in both academics and sports.  They both love technology like their father.  And like me, they enjoy reading.  They are both honors students, but when it comes to doing something that requires physical exercise, they act like it's the worst thing in the world.  So, I have to force them gently persuade them to exercise.  There used to be a Swim America program at a nearby university that taught them how to swim and be safe in water.  But, the program was discontinued.  Although they complained at first, they look forward to their tennis lessons.
That's right, baby!  Lunge for that ball!

Since his birthday fell on a weekday, we weren't able to go anywhere.  So, we had a small celebration at home with cake, balloons, and presents.  I made him a  gummy bear birthday cake.  I got the idea from  Raspberri Cupcake.  Everyone loved it, even though I didn't make it from scratch.  I didn't have all of the ingredients needed so I had to use a box mix and frosting.   I'll do another post on how I cheated my way to making made this yummy cake.
