Saturday my aunt invited me over to make a big batch of pie crusts with her and my cousins. Since it was going to be fathers day the next day, Pearl (the one in the black shirt) made her papa a Boston cream pie, and Ruth (the oldest) made a chocolate meringue pie, both turned out beautifully. As you can see baby Dottie also helped out :)
After we finished everyone piled into the car with the Boston cream pie, and we headed to Portland to surprise my uncle at work at Deluxe Tattoo. The girls always get temporary tattoos, and this time they colored them in, which was pretty cute. You can see more on that subject in a post I did here. Hope everyone had a nice weekend!

Those pies look so nice! I love your shirt too, the rounded collar is such a nice touch, and the bow in your hair is adorable!

the juxtaposition of this ideal nuclear family setting (the outfits, the baking etc) and the crazy tatts is so cool. i love it.

How fun! :) I always love baking--and doing it with someone else (or lots of someone elses in your case ;) always makes it even more fun!

Oh! We had that same big green plastic bowl when I was small! I filled it full of pudding once.

Pearl, Ruth and Dottie (I presume Dorothy?) - what a beautifully named set of sisters! I think I love vintage names even more than vintage clothes!

Solanah said...

Elizabeth, aren't they darling names? There's also Grace, in the pink shirt :)
