. . . my daughter (their aunt) and I decided to make money cakes for their birthday. First I went to Michaels and loaded up on supplies.
Then we spent several hours rolling and pinning bills to styrofoam bases and decorating layers with flowers and a patriotic garland.
We used 56 assorted $1, $5 and $10 bills for each cake and evenly divided them so they fit into pre-marked quarter sections of each layer. What a system, lol!
A $50 bill (Grandpa's contribution) and a firecracker were at the top of each one.
And it didn't take long for the cakes to look like this!
On another note . . .
My daughter and I went for an early morning hike.
It was a little chilly when we started out . . .
. . . but once we were at the top we warmed up with some hot tea :)
This Tall Meadow Rue was one of only a few wildflowers we saw on the trail.
Have a great week!
