Today was Dad's birthday. JP and I pitched in with Mom to get him a scooter. He was so surprised! I didn't do a whole lot today. Took the boat out and sunbathed, gave Dad his present, had a fish fry and baked him a cake. His favorite is Butter Brickle but they quit making it in the 90s so I got online and found the recipe here:
It was a little bit challenging to make because Mom let Aunt Sally use her mixer so I had to beat/mix everything by hand...including the frosting. It was a big hit, though, and Dad loved it so that made the extra work worth it, I guess!
