Cute And Simple Back To School Cake Ideas

A great way to get excited for school is to celebrate it and we like to do that with our annual back to school cakes! Sometimes kids are super excited for back to school and sometimes super nervous and well sometimes down right ardent that they do not want to go. We have been through them all. Sometimes it’s the kids being excited and sometimes me dreading it. Sometimes the reverse.  Of course kindergarten is always a little more special and nerve racking too. But one thing we have consistently done for the past several years is to celebrate the milestone with a BACK TO SCHOOL CAKE. Cake makes everything better.

Destination Cultus!

We happily found ourselves back at the Cultus Lake Waterpark and Adventure Park. This is a wonderful place for families and summer fun. The two parks that make up Destination Cultus are run by a family themselves and it shows in all the family friendly details. It was interesting to learn from the owner himself, that initially they purchased the water park (in its original humble beginnings) and expanded and added to what it is today – home to over 25 amazing waterslide and attractions – the largest in the Provence. Then they embarked on turning the mini golf across the street into the Cultus Lake Adventure Fun Park that it is today. Meaning that yes, you can do the waterslides and a family friendly theme park for all ages, in the same epic day!!  Continue reading Destination Cultus!
