Birthday baking!

Sweet Rina,

Yesterday was your Dad’s and Grand-Papa’s birthdays. They share the same birthday. I know, it’s a bit freaky that my husband shares a birthday with my dad, but that’s how it is in this family! Because your Dad and Nonno went to play golf in the morning, your Grandma and I took a trip to the land of “Let’s spoil Rina” aka Carter’s / Osh Kosh. We dropped some serious moolah for some clothes for you, but most of it will have to be returned, unfortunately. I’ve washed and dried the new clothes according to directions on labels and everything has shrunk to the size of clothes that is now getting too small for you… And since we wanted to get you clothes that you could grow a bit into, these just won’t do. Hopefully, they’ll give us an exchange without too much fuss.

When the men came back from golfing, your Grandma and Nonno took off for an intimate dinner at the Sooke Harbour House and your Dad had to go in to work in the evening, so it was just the two of us for dinner and bedtime. However, because we didn’t really celebrate your Dad’s birthday yesterday, I am currently in the process of baking a vegan Tiramisu cake from “The Everyday Vegan” by Dreena Burton while your Grandma has gone to get us supplies so we can make homemade pizzas for dinner. If the batter of the cake is any indication as to how the cake will turn out, it will be finger-licking good! I’ll try to remember to take pictures of the cake and pizzas and post them on here later if you’re lucky. The sun is finally out, the house smells of cake, it’s going to be a good day, I can just tell! 🙂
