funny faces and cupcakes

When Eric got home this morning from work, we decided to go for an early morning walk.  Even at 8am it was pretty hot out.  I am so ready for the cooler weather, but I'll be waiting awhile.  In Austin, it doesn't start to get NICE out until October and November.  I hate this hot sunny weather we have 24/7.  No thank you 103 degrees.  Give me some 60s and 70s please. 

Avery was in a playful mood after her morning nap today.  She was making funny faces at me through the crib bars. 
HAHA look at that face!  Every time I look at this picture I laugh.
I had to go to a dentist appointment at 4pm today.  Eric stayed home with Avery.  He prepared a home made pizza crust and prepped veggies.  He gave Avery her dinner and bath by the time I got home.  As soon as I walked in the door, Avery was ready for her night time bottle and bed.  I took her and rocked her to sleep while Eric finished getting our veggie pizza together and in the oven.  It came out great!  I love home made pizza. 

Since I went to the dentist today, what better way to celebrate than making a super sugary dessert?  I decided to make some strawberry cupcakes with vanilla butter cream frosting.  No, this wasn't made from a box folks!  Here I am adding fresh strawberries to the batter. 
My super pretty finished product.  I'm trying out a few new cupcake recipes before Avery's first birthday party.  I'm planning on making all of the cupcakes.  These strawberry cupcakes are a for sure go!  I'm thinking I would like to make some lemon cupcakes as well. 
Look at that strawberry goodness.  YUM!  Eric ate 3 of them already. 
Time to go clean up the mess I made in the kitchen.  Hope everyone has a great night!
