we can cross a few more STL 250 Birthday Cakes off our list!
On Wednesday, the kids and I went to visit a historical mansion here in St. Louis called
the Chatillon-DeMenil mansion...
Our main reason for visiting the mansion (besides the cake) was to go on the tour. Evan has a summer social studies project that involves researching a predominant culture in the St. Louis area. He chose the French culture. We definitely learned quite a bit about the history of French culture in St. Louis on the tour, and I found quite a bit of it fascinating. You can see the website for the mansion *Here*.
Then we headed next door to the Lemp mansion...
The Lemp Mansion itself has quite an interesting history. Some say it's haunted, and they host comedy and mystery dinners there that are supposed to be fun.
As we headed home, I remembered that there was one more cake not to far from our location...
I have to say we are having a lot of fun on our cake expeditions! :)
And Mike has actually taken pictures of three more cakes while he was out on bike rides. Even though the kids and I weren't there for those cakes, I plan on adding those photos to our STL 250 Cake scrapbook album. (yes, there is going to be an album!)
So that brings our grand total of photos with cakes to 16 so far.
Hoping to get some more soon!
In Scrapbooking, I had a small little post go up on the Craft Your Nest blog yesterday sharing some fun giveaways on the internet this week involving Chic Tags, The Twinery and Paper Issues.
I am also working on not one, but two layouts right now. I will be able to share at least one of them next week.
Hope you have a great weekend!
