Red, White, and Blue Pink Saturday

Dear America,
Did you know you share a birthday with a very special man? My loving daddy will turn 79 years old on July 4th. My family will join other family members and friends for an early celebration on the 3rd. We're going to cook out and make ice cream. I've already got the cake baked and ready to go!

I made a carrot cake with cream cheese icing. The pinwheel decoration was made from a free printout from Skip To My Lou.

Don't forget to join Beverly, our Pink Saturday hostess, for this Red, White, and Blue Pink Saturday.
