It was another busy weekend on the ranch. The Bag Lady's mother-in-law held a surprise birthday party for the Rancher's sister, and the Bag Lady and her sisters-in-law all helped out. The weather was very co-operative - the huge thunderstorm held off until after the party!
It was a lovely hot day, and it seemed as though everyone had a good time.
The Bag Lady made spinach salad, and spinach dip, and carrot cake. She carved a watermelon into a swan, but forgot to take a picture of it!
Here's the cake, though:
The Bag Lady had a lot of trouble decorating the cake - it's been quite a long time since she actually wrote on a cake!
There was a ton of good food and they roasted hot dogs over an open fire.
The Bag Lady tried to take some pictures of the storm, but she had left her video camera in her truck and wasn't about to run through the torrential downpour to get it! It rained over a half an inch in less than a half an hour, and the thunder and lightning were incredible!
The Bag Lady took this picture before the storm broke:
