I picked Adrielle up (after a very busy day of work, exercise, baking, errands, etc.) from her brother's baseball game and we were off!! I knew exactly where to take her, to the Tropical Smoothie Cafe on Chinoe. Michael and I went there last Saturday, and now I'm craving fruit smoothies like CRAZAY! They are soooo yummy and delish and summery, I just can't resist.
You know what I learned as we walked into the smoothie shop? In her 10 years of life, Adrielle apparently had NEVER had a smoothie before. Man was she in for some yummyness in her tummyness! I asked her about her fav fruits and we decided to go with (we split cause their regular smoothies are enough to feed a small city) the something with the words "Sunset" in it. The smoothie had mango, strawberry, pineapple, and orange in it. OH goodness, it was GOOD. I devoured my portion instantly. Adrielle loved her's too but she is more of a "I'm gonna sip this slowly and enjoy it kinda girl". It literally took her like 30 minutes longer than me to finish her smoothie!! I felt like an oinky!
As we slurped our smoothies outside I gave Adrielle her gift. (she had asked for it so I knew she wanted to)
|I believe Adrielle is down with Beiber Fever|
On the ride home we danced and sang to some Britney Spears, it was fun. I hope one day I can dance and sing in the car with my kids and they won't be embarrassed of me, although I'm sure they will be! After celebrating I dropped her at home and left her with some cake balls I made.
Ok, ok. I was going to try and make her cake pops (made famous by Bakerella) BUT I failed at that and then ran out of time and patience and just ended up making them into cake balls. Same thing, just without a stick. She was thrilled to have them. Her mother, another story, not too keen about the sugar. But hey, a girl needs a good sugary snack to celebrate her birthday and I did fill her up with some lovely blended fruit before I gave her the cake balls! But that's about it!! here's some of the process of making my failed cake pops!
