Rockin' Birthday Shrimp Boil

My husband, daughter and I traveled to my parents home over the weekend to celebrate my Dad's birthday. It was such a beautiful weekend to celebrate him and a great excuse for good food too.

My 12 year old niece Audrey wanted to plan the shindig so we were eager to see what she would come up with. She decided that we would have a shrimp boil with all the works, Karaoke for entertainment and of course a birthday cake made by her. Now being the entertainer and baker that I am I was so happy that Audrey wanted to do all of this. She seems to take it after her Aunt and that makes me smile. :)

The menu went like this; Shrimp, potatoes and corn, cabbage kielbasa, salad, garlic bread and all the sweet tea this southern gal could handle. I was able to grab a picture before it was all consumed.

I just have to share a picture of the cake too. Audrey was so proud of her accomplishment and I think she did such a fine job. She used the karaoke CD container for part of the decorations which was a great idea.

We all had a great time singing and goofing off with the karaoke music and even my Dad did a little singing of his own. Sorry, no pictures or recordings of that. :)

So here's to great family time, creative celebrations and life! Maybe this will inspire you to have a family celebration this weekend!


  1. I love the cake...oh yes I am sure it did indeed make you proud! perhaps a future business partner there? LOL
