A sunny cake for a solar panel party (I love that my friends celebrate being green, even when it costs $30,000 to make such a move. Ouch.)

  1. What a busy day–so full of adventures! It was fun reading about your day’s activities and seeing the pictures.

  2. Great job Kelli – LOVE the cakes/cupcakes – look YUMMY! And the bowling shots are fun. Great pictures, great day…thanks for playing along!


  3. Oh how I wish I could really bowl as well as I do on our Wii.. I’m a pro on there but I pretty much never break 100 for real!

  4. Comment #1 – That is such a gorgeous photo of you!

    Comment #2 – The Packers? You realize two of your best friends live in Chicago right? Home of Da Bears!! 😉

    Comment #3 – Ditto to Amanda C’s comment. Wii bowling rocks!

  5. A solar panel party? Heck yeah!

  6. K. I’m going to pretend that that was what you did in a week, not a day.


  7. Yum, your cakes look delicious! I am rubbish at Bowling, last time we went and played as a family our 2 year old won though, so that just goes to show! I can get in the 60s with the sides up and the rolley thing, on a good day!

  8. Great looking cakes! Cool to be having a solar panel party. But I’m curious whether your area has laws about solar panels and trees like California has? I just read an article in the local paper about two next door neighbors, each in a different city. One couple had planted redwood trees in their backyard back in the late 90s. Now a few of those trees are starting to shade the solar panels of their neighbor’s house. It’s looking like the trees will have to be removed even though the solar panels came years after the trees. They both are good things for the environment so how does one choose which should prevail?

    But definitely cool to have your own energy source. 🙂

  9. great! you can answer my question. I was playing bowling on my Wii this morning ( I didn’t ask for a zebra for Christmas) and I wondered how the scoring works? do I get excited when my score goes from 109 to 99 or not?

  10. “Lanes of humiliation”…classic.

    And thanks for not posting the picture of my last game…seems Homer and i have some practicing to do.

  11. Too fun – we would totally be friends if I lived in AZ! So cute on your drive to breakfast – looks like you had a great busy day!

  12. Go Packers! You sure had a busy and fun-filled day! 🙂

  13. Wow! You pack so much into a day. And I’m a fan of bumper bowling. I’ve got a wicked bank shot strike. 😉

  14. What a beautiful self-portrait! I enjoyed seeing how the “no kids in sight” folks live!

  15. you inspired me to do this yesterday. it was a challenge but i did it. so thank you!
