It was a quick statement one afternoon that week "we could have an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen for your party" that got them excited enough that I could take a different route this year. I was totally ready to make their cakes but sometimes moms just have great ideas that make everyone happy!
So, rather than making two more cakes in September this year, we went to Dairy Queen. Everyone loved the cake and the 12-girl sleepover was a lot less work for this crazy-busy in September mom! I am SO okay with that!
