Just when I think I'm starting to be a good baker...This happens: My bread dough was way way way to sticky to do anything thing with it. So this is attempt #1. Then I threw it away...Now with a new start me and meg got it somewhat right. But this time it was alittle on the dry side. But it still tasted good. Meg made the cinnamon rolls and I did the cream cheese braid. I think we had more fun laughing making the sticky dough than actually making our bread! Final attempt #2

About a couple weeks ago me and my dad went for a motorcycle ride up to fort bridger which is in Wyoming! What a ride! Amazing. As we were coming into Evanston there were hundreds of windmills everywhere. It was awesome. I've never seen that many windmills. Everywhere you looked you could see windmills! We got to for bridger and walked around. Did you know that the Mormons burned down Fort Bridger and so Mr. Bridger went and got the "police" that drove them out of that area? I did not know that until now. Pretty interesting stuff that happened there. We then ate at alittle diner..I mean little. I ate my first bite of buffalo meat. It didn't taste like chicken..it actually tasted like hamburger.

Yesterday I thought of the idea to bake a cake for my mom for her birthday. I texted her and asked what her favorite candy bar was. She had no clue what I was doing. She thought I was buying her twix or something. So, I went to the store and bought all the stuff I thought I would need to make this awesome cake. After one attempt at getting the cake out of the pan I was unsuccessful. But, cake #2 came out fine! Thank goodness! Cuz, I was starting to get sick of a making just cake. Even though I only had made one unsuccessful one. I finally got it right and started decorating. It's really hard to get gold icing let me tell you all the trial and errors. but, me and meg finally got what we thought was close enough to gold. Here is the Final product!!
