In case you missed the news, the great state of Kansas turned 146 yesterday. That’s really not very old… I hear that 146 is the new 30, so Kansas is still a young spring chicken. My son came home from school pumped full of Kansas information. He quizzed us all on what the state flower was (the Sunflower), what the state bird is (the Meadowlark), etc, etc. When my 3 year old found out it was somebody’s birthday she said "Mommy, we need to make a cake for Kansas. He’ll really like it and we can have a party for him." I am never one to turn down an opportunity to bake, so I set out to find what kind of cake to make for Kansas. After a little research, I settled on Kansas Dirt Cake. It really isn’t a cake, but it is still good! The cake was made, a few neighbor kids came over for a little party, and we celebrated the birthday of Kansas. Kelly kept waiting for the guest of honor to arrive, very confused as to why we were having a party for someone who didn’t even have the courtesy to show up. In the end, I think she was glad because that just meant more cake for her.
Speaking of parties, have you heard about the Ultimate Blog Party being held by the folks over at 5 Minutes for Mom? It is going to be quite the shin dig, with tons of great prizes for those attending! This is a party for all bloggers, not just moms. Make sure to check it out. Hope you can make it!
