GA Trip: Part 1

Here are a lot of pictures from the first half of our trip to GA. As usual, flew into Atlanta and spent a few days with my family before heading further south to see Nathans family.
The annual Leonhard 4th of July party was held on Saturday night and it was tons of fun just like always. This is the first year George has really been able to know who everyone is and know where he was.
He played very, very hard and, unlike all our previous trips, slept well. Nothing screams vacation more than worn out children that sleep well. 

Matchy Matchy

One of the perks of having multiple children is dressing them to match each other. My mom bought these two outfits for the kiddies and Edith is finally big enough to wear hers. It doesn't get much cuter than matching smocked goldfish on Sunday morning.

Lavender Cupcakes

It's been too long since I baked with herbs. Someone asked me to bake these lavender cupcakes for their daughters birthday last week. They were so yummy that I baked them again for a church function Friday night. I still have a little lavender left and I'm thinking of using it to make lavender ice cream!

I doubled the recipe both times. The first time I made standard sized cupcakes with a yield of about 15. For our church function I did mini cupcakes and it made about 53-55.
