Can you even believe it? My 4th child is 17? Way too weird!
She always wants a strawberry cake and if I don't forget, which is weird I know, she gets one. I remembered this year, well, I asked her what kind of cake she wanted, and was suprised that I had to ask. I don't know what has happened to me these past 18 months........hopefully I will be back to my old self early next year. I want "me" back. Anyway, back to the strawberry cake. I live in a small town as you know and for years there was only one grocery store, IGA. There are two now, Extra Foods as well. Usually between the two I can find what I need..........pretty much, except for a simple box of strawberry of cake mix and a container of strawberry frosting. Is that too much to ask for? Apparently in Cardston it is. So I bought a cherry chip cake mix and strawberry mousse for the icing and strawberry ice cream. It was pretty and pink so all was well.
Let me think, where was I and what was I doing when I turned 17..........hmmmm...living in Hawaii going to Kaiser High School, going to the beach in Waikiki or Bellows in Waimanalo, oh and a bat girl for the high school boys baseball team. Yah that was me walking out to the home plate area picking up the bat after the hit. Sorry I don't have the picture for you. Maybe a bit weird but I did get to go to Maui for a tournament, can't beat that!
