Happy Birthday Brent!

Brent's birthday was the same night as Meet the Teacher at the Academy, so we invited all the grands and greats to come celebrate. We had a cookout and then enjoyed our cake and Blue Bell.

This year Brent asked for coconut cake. We have quite a few coconut cake connoisseurs in our family, so I was feeling quite the pressure. My only other attempt at a from scratch coconut cake was Christmas a few years ago, and it was a ton of work and not so great. So this time I decided to skip the fresh coconut and go with a tried and true recipe using good old Baker's. It got good reviews from Brent, and no one left any on their plates, so I guess I've found my keeper recipe.

This year the grands and greats pitched in with us to get Brent some "very nice" tickets to a home game at Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field. We will be taking Andrew with us this year to his very first game, and we are all super excited. I think Brent would say he had a great day!
