Memorial Day Weekend

We had big plans for the weekend, we were going to my sister & brother in law's house in Kerrville. So I decided I would make a pound cake, one of my favorites. Friday morning I got up bright & early (6:15) & made a cake. Well I should have just slept in because I took the cake out of the oven too early & it fell. Boy was I mad! I still wanted pound cake so I decided to make another one, & the second cake turned out great. Thought the following photos would make great blog material. The 1st photo is of the fallen cake, the 2nd is the good cake beside the fallen cake. The one on the right is the good cake. Just take a look. (NO Laughing allowed)!

The cake did taste great, & we ate the whole thing! My sister told me not to bring it ever again because everytime she passed by it she had to have a piece. HeeHee!

Well my sister has a beautiful home that sits on 7 acres, with a creek in her back yard. Oh my gosh, it is so pretty. My daughter, son in law & grandson's also went to my sister's. We just had a great big get together. We all went fishing & swimming in the creek. We caught lots of small fish, catfish & perch. No keepers! But it was so fun. We all laughed & played & ate well. Below are some of the photos.....

On the left is my daughter, then Montgomery "Gummy" my grandson, & last is my sister!

Everyone getting the fishing poles ready!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The big catch of the day!!!!!!!!!!! Ha Ha!

The boys even rode on the 4 wheeler with their Papa & our 2 chihuahua's. They really loved that!Thanks sista & Roy for a great weekend, we love you both, had sooooo much FUN!!!!!! Hope you all had as much fun as we did. Hugs***Renea

Looks like you had a great time down at the Creek! What a wonderful way to spend the holiday weekend! I got a giggle out of your cake fiasco (laughing with you, not at you). I've had the same thing happen when I've made one of those poundcakes. Sometimes, though, the worst mistakes turn out to be the most delicious!
Hugs, Bebe :)

Great Photos, looks like lots of fun. I'll have to tell you the tale of my mom's pound cake and why it ended up in the back yard!
