Jonah's Star-Spangled Fruit Tart

July 4th came and went so fast this year! I blinked and the whole day was over!
Honestly, it was a bit of a challenging day...we were literally on our way out to the festivities when the van screeched and then would. not. move.
My Mom and Dad came over to celebrate with us, so that was nice, but then the dark clouds rolled in and within 10 minutes the whole sky opened up. It poured all night long! No fireworks, boo!
I think I want a July 4th Do-Over. Maybe this weekend.  :)

One of the highlights was this fabulous pie- or rather, tart- that Jonah made for us. I'd been pinning tons of patriotic desserts and such, and this was the one he decided on. Super easy and so good! He was very proud {as in, still talking about it, ha}, and I was too.
Didn't he do a great job!?!

Caleb had his heart set on making a red, white and blue swirl Bundt cake, but I think I just ran out of steam that day, so I promised we'd make it this weekend. When I get that do-over. And a cute family photo of us all decked out in our patriotic duds.

I'm throwing in these pictures too...Isabelle has been obsessed with brushing the cats lately, and I thought this looked so cute. 

Oh that beautiful girl!

That is a beautiful dessert- I would hate to cut into something so pretty! :)

I have been perusing your blog and your nightgown tutorials are very nice! I have been whipping up nightgowns for my girls lately. I made one very similar to yours a while ago.

Oh, and my middle child is named Isabelle.

Great minds think alike, I guess! :)
