Weddings, Birthdays!

This past weekend we were lucky enough to participate in two of our favorite kinds of events: a wedding and a kid’s birthday!

We packed up three kinds of cupcakes for a wedding out in Livermore. I’ve never been before and I had no idea what to expect.

As it turns out, Livermore is effing gorgeous (at least the part that we were in).

We approve!

The drive was magic- we saw the most wild turkeys, cows, miniature goats, horses AND an emu!I will obviously be having my wedding in Livermore.

We managed not to get sidetracked and arrived at the wedding venue. We set up the cupcake tower and chatted with bride, groom, and their family and friends, who were incredibly gracious.

On the drive back got to stop and take in the scenery and wildlife.

Shortly after this, the emu tried to get out of the fence and we had to make a run for it.

Us… and cows in the distance. It was pretty windy.

The very next day was the birthday of one of my all-time-favorite-kids! Indigo is the son of my incredibly good friend and possibly the best person ever. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing him grow up from a teeny tiny to a six-year-old little man!

He had a pirate themed party with a cake made by the talented Amanda, and cupcakes from us. I think he knows how lucky he is!

Anticipation builds!
The little pirates seemed to enjoy their cupcakes.

It was a great weekend and there is a lot more to look forward to this month. We are getting for the Halloween themed EBVB- see you there!
