Slice of life | The Ice Cream Cake


We were getting together with family for Mother's Day and for our kids' birthdays. On the way to my sister's house, we picked up an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen. After dinner, we started singing Happy Birthday to Annie, Eliza and Ethan. I passed the cake, which had started to melt on the kitchen counter, to Jim and we started to sing. (How I wish a video camera had been on!) As Jim was holding the cake up in front of the kids, it slid right off the plate hitting Dad's glass of ice water. While we were laughing around the table, Jim scooped the cake back onto the plate and we started up again without missing the end of the song...And happy birthday to you!

  4. As long as no one is hurt, and there is some cake to eat, a runaway cake is not a problem. Great that you were all able to laugh and still sing.
