Two Big Announcements!!

Announcement #1:
Congratulations to my sister, Caitlin, and soon-to-be-brother-in-law, Jeffrey!!! They officially got engaged on Friday, when Jeffrey proposed to her outside of her office in Harlem! I haven't seen it yet, but I hear that her ring is beautiful. I am so excited that they are getting married and even more excited that they are getting married in New York City on August 4th and that we get to go!! Congratulations Caitlin and welcome to the family Jeffrey! Let the wedding plans officially begin!

Announcement #2:
Jonathan's dream came true last week while Abigale and I were in Pocatello. He finally bought himself a scooter after years of wishing, hoping and dreaming about it. He is so excited and it has become his new "project". It is a few years old so he has had fun fixing it up and getting it in perfect condition. I tried to drive it for the first time and about killed myself but I will admit that it was fun to drive. I just need a little practice.

Magnolia's Cupcakes

If you have ever been to New York City then you have probably tried or at least heard of Magnolia's cupcakes. While I was at home in Pocatello this past week, my mom and I found the recipe for the famous cupcakes and decided to give them a try. It called for some different ingredients that we did not have so we tried to improvise, and as you can tell by the pictures, it did not work so well.

At least Abigale got a kick out of it!
Just so you all know, we tried again with the correct ingredients and they were delicious!
Additional Pictures from Pocatello:
