Summer Lately

Family reunion on the farm | Sally's Baking Addiction

It’s been a month! My apologies for not updating you with photos earlier in July. Between Franklin growing up before my eyes, the kitchen remodel finally coming to life, getting settled into our new home, visitors, picnics, BBQs, and baking… life’s kept me away from the camera!

But last weekend in particular was very special. We went to a family reunion for Kevin’s side of the family. The reunion took place at his late grandfather’s farm, where my mother-in-law grew up. It was the last time the family would all be there together before it is passed onto another family. I made sure to snap as many pictures as I could, so we could all treasure this space forever.

Banana cake

Kevin’s cousin made the most unbelievable banana cake with cream cheese frosting. It was by far one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. I got the recipe from her and will share it on my food blog soon. I can’t WAIT to remake it.

  1. I love the photos from the farm, very serene and beautiful. That must’ve been a really emotional experience for all of you. And Frank, holy cow, he’s getting big!! Thanks for including us in your life. I always enjoy your photography updates.

    Aww incredible how much Frank has grown up since you brought him home!

    What a lovely property, it must have been really emotional for the family to be there knowing this is the last time and new owners will soon take possession of it.

    Looking forward to seeing photos of the new house (and kitchen!!) very soon!! 🙂

    These photos are so gorgeous, Sally! You captured the feel of tranquil summer days on the farm so perfectly!

  4. This looks like such a wonderful Summer so far.

  5. Thank you so much for sharing these pictures! They are the perfect summer fantasy…an old barn, banana cake and an absolutely beautiful, healthy looking puppy! It is so obvious Franklin is loved!! And I cannot wait for the banana cake recipe!!
