Vacation Recap pt. 4

14 Mar

Last week, me, B and the family traveled to Turks and Caicos for a week-long family reunion. You can catch up on part 1, part 2, and part 3 here.

Between the end of February and the end of March, our family has two birthdays, my brother’s and my husband’s. Thus, while we were on vacation, mom decided to throw them a joint birthday party. Seeing as they both love the Yankees and burgers on the grill it was an easy collaboration.

Mom gathered and brought a boat load of Yankee decorations and party favors, ranging from napkins, plates and balloons to cake toppers, pencils and birthday pins. We sent the boys away while we decorated.

My brother also got his own cheesecake with sour cream topping!

IMG_3748I made a fruit sauce from blueberries, strawberries and raspberries. It was so delicious! All you have to do it cut the fruit, put them in a sauce pan, add a little sugar (optional) and wait for it to bubble!

IMG_6501It was a great time of food, fun, and family. We got a little silly and snuggly after the sugar and coffee kicked in.

IMG_3413How do you celebrate birthdays with family? Do they turn into a caffeinated, sugar fest?

Stay tuned tomorrow for a trip to the Global Market!
