Why is that important? Because I just placed an advanced order for 10 deluxe cupcakes for our special outing this Friday evening, when our entire family takes Jo Ann to the Balloon Glow, at Forest Park, on her birthday. And, they should still be fresh come Friday. They may be a bit pricey, but they are SO GOOD!
I got a mix of Salted Caramel, Birthday Cake, Chocolate Cookie, Double Chocolate, and Pretzel S’more. Everyone should be able to find at least one cupcake flavor that they like among those goodies. And they come in a convenient carry case, so we can pack them in with our food for the night. Now, I just need to get my hands on a package of candles, to make them proper birthday cupcakes.
I just hope it cools down a bit between now and then. I’m so excited to be taking Jo Ann to the Balloon Glow. She’s never been, and we are going to have so much fun. The balloons are such an amazing sight.
I’m taking off work a couple of hours early, so that I can get the car gassed up, get a small cooler iced down, and get our food either bought or made before Jo Ann gets off work at 5:30 PM. She should be at our house sometime right before 6, and then we can be down at the festivities by around 7 PM. Just enough time to get a parking spot, and find a place to spread out before the balloons start lighting up at around 7:30 PM.
Also, that way, we aren’t there for a whole long time before the balloons go up, and we are exploring for about 2 hours before the fireworks go off at 9 PM.
