Birthdays and Sunburn, Days 207 and 208



My cakes don't always look this bad. My daughter wanted an angel food cake for her birthday and then while it was cooling, and since it was HER birthday, she picked off and ate all of the crunchy stuff on top - which left me with a cake that looked like it was half-eaten...which it was!



On Sunday, my son went to the beach with friends and did a very bad job of applying his own sunscreen. He is now left with a bit of sun poison and a back full of burn and blisters.

My daughter went to the beach a few weeks ago and was left with the same sort of look!

I can definitely identify with both of these pictures. I always eat off that part of the cake too. (Unless if I have to take it somewhere.) :)

And, if I missed any part of my back, I guarantee I'd be looking the same way. I bet your son is absolutely miserable right now.

I think I am the only person around that doesn't like angel food cake! :)

Ouch on the burn.....that is never fun!

The crunchy area is the best part of the angel food cake!

I am feeling the heat off his sunburn - ouch!

A lesson learned the hard way. Aloe Vera is about the best thing that can be put on any kind of burn. Of course, a cool bath helps too.

Well, if the birthday girl wanted to eat her cake in bits and pieces, I guess she is allowed. :D No matter what it looks like. It will all taste the same. :D

Good shots. Great job on the BD Girl.

I always ate the edge pieces of my grandma's upside down pineapple cake, so I can relate to Colleen eating the best part of the cake (and hey, it was her birthday!). Hope Danny's sunburn is healing ~ OUCH! I always tanned really good, and didn't seem to have any worries with burning.

LOL at the cake, it was her birthday... so I guess that she enjoyed it was all the mattered... I LOVE the crunchy stuff too!

Ouch, I hope your son is feeling better. We are headed down the shore on Monday, need to pick up some sun screen
