First Day of School, an Earthquake, and Peach Cupcakes
I was left to a relatively quiet day with this guy.
So, of course I made cupcakes. After all, it is a tradition in our house to celebrate the first day of school. I made these wonderful peach cupcakes with brown sugar cream cheese frosting. (Did I tell you we picked TWENTY pounds of peaches last week? Have you noticed the peach postings are multiplying here?)
And then, while the cupcakes were chilling out in the refrigerator, we had an earthquake. That's right. An earthquake. Did I tell you I live in Maryland? Not California. Maryland.Having lived in California, I did actually know what was happening. It was surreal. The buildings were waving back and forth and the trees were shaking their leaves. And then it was over.
Jonathan thought it was great. Kind of scary too. But so awesome. And because the earthquake caused delays in getting home, he got to have a popsicle at school!
I gave him a cupcake too.
these fabulous cupcakes!
