    My husband grew up in a historic home – the first superintendent of schools for the nation. His family moved when he was about 10 years old but he took me back to show me the little town and his old house. As luck would have it, the new owners saw us lingering in front of the house. After some quick introductions (and assurance we weren’t casing the joint) he invited us in and my husband gave me a tour of his old home. It was so cool!!!

    Hi Lisa,

    I love all of your pics! I will get there someday. Just wanted to forward a blog of a little girl that fought a hard fight and thought you might be touched by her story. I was thinking maybe a little necklace would be great for this brave and loving mom. Just thought you would be interested. It makes me a much better mother when I read things like this…the blog is:

    Sad but beautiful. Enjoy!

  3. Claire says:

    Glad you are all enjoying yourselves here in beautiful England. We’re happy to have you!

    My Oma (grandmother in German), grew up in a town called Zweibrucken, Germany. The town has a railroad station so it was a target during WWII. Half of the house that she grew up in was blown up during the war. When I was 17, my grandparents took me to Europe & our first stop was Zweibrucken…and I got to see that house! Talk about an emotional experience!

  5. Alyssa says:

    My aunt still lives in my great grandparent’s home in Mexico which we visit every few years. I was able to go once to New York City’s Little Italy and see the home where my grandma was born– I love this kind of stuff!

  6. Erin says:


    My father’s father’s family is from an incredibly small town about an hour outside of Indianapolis, so when we were kids we would go back and visit every once in a while. There is not much there anymore, but we would definitely always go visit the family cemetery where most everyone is buried. The family has lived in that area since the 1700’s, and one of my great grandfathers fought in the Revolutionary War. He was even at the Battle of Yorktown when the English surrendered, which is pretty amazing. There is a government-issued plaque in front of his grave for that honor. That is something special that I will never forget. :)

  7. Summer says:

    I love family travel posts and yours are so super inspiring. The hubby and I dream of traveling abroad with the kids, maybe someday!

  8. I recently went back to Tulsa to take pictures of Brian’s grandmother’s house and all the places we used to eat and go when she was alive. It was so very special.

  9. Paige says:

    My grandfather was part of the troops in WW2 to help free Dacau Concentration Camp near Munich, Germany. I went there when I was in college and took pictures of me standing by the watch towers in the exact spot my grandfather stood over 50 years earlier. I also took them a bunch of pictures my family had and the camp museum said she had never seen pictures of that sort. It was an amazing experience and I’m so proud of my grandfather. There is a plaque in the concentration camp with his troop’s name and it brought warm memories to my heart. Too bad he had already passed one year earlier and didn’t get to talk to me about it.

  10. Teresa says:

    The door isn’t blue! Love!

  11. Kelli says:

    What a special outing for your family!

    I grew up in New England, and our family tree goes back to Myles Standish on the Mayflower, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and a bunch of people who led sweet, quiet lives around Boston and in Maine. My Grammy is from here in Olympia, but she’d come visit often, and we’d drive all over the countryside, visiting little cemeteries and overgrown homes. It’s a very special bond we now share, as I am trying to transfer all her research into my own hands as she ages.

    Keep enjoying your trip!

  12. Margaret says:

    Oh my goodness!! I live just down the road from Wolverton in Milton Keynes – you could have dropped in for lunch!! We know Wolverton well. I have been doing lots of family history research and visiting places such as the cottage where my great grandmother lived and the church where my parents married. It’s so fascinating. It’s been really interesting following where you have visited on your trip here – do you have many more places to see? I hope the sunshine returns for you, today has been just awful. Very English weather :)

  13. Ruth Yoder says:

    Looks like a lot of fun!

    Happy Birthday Lisa – how special for you that you get to see how another culture celebrates birthdays! My most favorite dessert is fun fetti cake you know the cheap box cake that’s white with colored dots inside. When I turned 20 my parents brought that cake to college along with child themed party supplies to celebrate leaving the teen years and moving into my 20s. Now that I love to cook and bake I love a homemade chocolate cake!

    I think its got to be good old Carrot cake for me, I’ve eaten some good ones and some bad ones, but its still got to be my favourite….so much so that I had one as a wedding cake! I don’t care what convention says, I say go with your gut, if it’s your birthday – it’s your treat!!

I love when a family member bakes me a special cake or treat. Just the fact that they took time to put a smile on my face is sweet. However, I do love yellow cake with chocolate frosting, but I’d pretty much eat any kind of dessert. Sweets are my weakness.

    Two years ago my Canadian bf moved to the Netherlands to live with me. During that fall, it was the first time I experienced Thanksgiving and some other North-American ‘traditions’ during the fall. This included pumpkin pie – homemade, by my bf. Since then I can’t wait till it’s the season again. I’d never had pumpkin before and now I am the biggest fan :-) Luckily my birthday is in October….

    Many Happy Returns of the Day, Lisa! How fun to be on holiday for your birthday πŸ˜‰

    I’m not a huge cake fan, but my mum makes this pineapple cake that is soooooooo amazing I could eat the whole thing single handedly. Maybe even in one sitting! The best part is the icing, which isn’t actually icing or frosting – it’s some orange flavoured mixture that’s smooth and creamy and really, the cake is just a vehicle for it. *Sigh* I could really go for some now. I wonder if I could convince my mum to whip one up in your honour πŸ˜‰

  273. Kathy Brood says:

    Happy Rithday Dear Lisa! I’m thankful for your creativity and giftedness:) I love Boston Cream Pie, and I make it for many of our birthday celebrations. It’s yummy:)

    Enjoy your birthday weekend!

  311. Carrie says:

    Well…what kind of birthday treat do I NOT like?!

    When I taught school, I had a fabulous team leader who took such good care of all of us on her team…we lovingly called her “Mom” :)! She would make every person whatever kind of treat they wanted every year on their birthday. My favorite was her banana split cake…super yummy and super easy to make, but very time-consuming. A real labor of love.

  312. Van (Huynh) Nguyen says:

    Where I live in Texas, there is a french bakery that makes a delicious moist white cake with slices of strawberries, mandarian oranges and kiwi mixed in with the cream that separates the two layers of white cake. More fruit on the top of the cake and almond slivers all around the sides are the perfect touches to a fabulous cake.My family gets this cake for almost any occasion, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

  313. LKatz says:

    Having just celebrated my 35th birthday (Aug 9) this topic is fresh in my mind. I really love baking with any and all of my three kids so to me anything made with them is a treat. With that said homemade butter pecan ice cream truly does “take the cake.” When my gpa died i got his old ice cream maker. Yay for family!

  509. Michelle Keeley says:

    I forgot about the cake…..I love funfetti cake from the mix.

  510. Angela says:

    Happy bday Lisa!! Say hi to Kate and William for me:o) it’s a tradition in our family to have a carvel ice cream cake with the chocolate crunches in the middle BUT my fav is a cake my Mom-Mom makes. It’s a lemon and blueberry pound cake with a glaze drizzles on top. So fresh and delicious!

  511. Annette Deardurff says:

    My favorite birthday cake involves a lot of chocolate, yummy, rich buttercream frosting, and some delicious ice cream – the flavor is not terribly important, but it goes so well with cake! The other integral part is having family and friends to share it with!

  512. Angela says:

    I also tweeted your giveaway!

  513. Julie says:

    My favorite birthday cake is carrot cake!

  527. Jill White says:

    Happy Birthday!
    Gosh, I’m not a cake person, but reading some of these comments might make me switch over to the dark side and be a cake girl instead of a pie-girl. For birthdays I love a turtle ice cream pie from Dairy Queen. Yum!

  528. Woohoo, Happy Birthday to you, Lisa!

    Well, I don’t like to eat junk food, but I do have a soft spot in my heart for chocolate. :)

  529. Happy Birthday! What a fun way to celebrate-in England! Hope you have a wonderful trip.

  530. Wendy S. says:

    Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful birthday with your family in England…how cool! Love your giveaway. My favorite birthday cake to be honest is any kind…I’m not picky and I’m just happy someone else is making it for me. But, I do give hints about how much I love chocolate…he, he, he!

  531. nancy says:

I will have to say a chocolate cake with a cream cheese icing I like it so rich and moist it makes you sick!!! But spring and summer brays are perfect for an angel food cake with whip cream frosting and fresh fruit. There nothing better than a bday BBQ with family

  570. connie tacazon says:

    Our family tradition is ice cream cake. My fave is anything with coffee flavor in it. Yum!

  571. Julie says:

    Happy Birthday! My birthday is coming up soon too, so I have already began thinking about cakes and deserts. My fave has to be vanilla creme brule with berries. I make it every year:) It’s nice to have my birthday in summer because then the berries are fresh from a local farm.

    Happy Birthday! I love cupcakes, but my favorite cake is probably red velvet with cream cheese frosting!

  573. Kristina says:

    I love German chocolate cake or brownies! I am a big fan of chocolate as you can see. This weekend is my husbands birthday and we just picked up an icecream cake. It is his favorite and a hit with the kiddos. Who can resist cake and icecream all together?

  574. Kari says:

    I LOVE cheesecake! Any kind …..

  575. Mallory says:

    I just had my first magniolia’s bakery new favorite…too bad I live across the country from them {or maybe that’s a good thing!}

  576. Evanne says:

    Happy Birthday Lisa!! Hope you are having a great time in England! My favorite type of cake is ice-cream cake…specifically mint chocolate chip (the green mint). I love icecream and sweets, so I combine them all into 1 :)

  588. Kelli says:

    I absolutely love Texas Sheet Cake for my birthday, with sprinkles! It tastes like school lunch chocolate cake from when we were little kids, so it’s nostalgic.

    I was a lemon meringue pie girl all the way growing up. Unfortunately, my hubby botched enough of them that I changed my tastes!

    Happy Birthday!

  589. Rina says:

    Apple pie that my mother in law makes-the best dessert, since my mother(and my whole family) live abroad and can’t send her cake :( Spending birthday with family you love is the best treat!!! Happy birthday!!

  590. Amy says:

    Banana chocolate chip cupcakes from Society Bakery in Dallas are my all time favorite! Happy day!

  591. Ann says:

    Happy Birthday Lisa, I am from England but currently live in the USA. While there you should tell everyone that “Mr Kipling makes exceedingly good cakes”and you will sound just like a local. I miss the bakeries in England very much, and think you should have just a plain iced bun with a cup of tea. They go together nicely.

  592. jaclyn m says:

    carrot cake please!!

  593. Lori Tacchino says:

    Chocolate cake with homemade chocolate frosting made from the directions on the Hershey’s cocoa box. Rich, yummy, delicious! Happy Birthday!

  594. amy miller says:

    ok, so I always say that my fav dessert is cheesecake and I would truly eat it everyday if I could, but for my birthdays I love me something special, so that would be mint chip icecream cake from BAskin Robbins. I love that frosting, the cold chocolate cake, and then the layer of green mint chip icecream. Not really many others in my family like it, so that just leaves more for me! Happy happy day to you and your sister!

  595. Cathy S. says:

    My favorite birthday cake is chocolate cake with vanilla icing! Yum! Happy birthday, Lisa!

    I hope you had a wonderful, memorable day!

  629. Becky says:

    Happy birthday, Lisa and to your sis, too! Hope you were able to Skype or somehow connect. My favorite dessert for my birthday was the Strawberry Shortcake at McLintock’s. So sad they stopped that (unless they started again). I spent my birthdays there every year since they opened in 1973 (or so). My birthday is just not the same, but now I need to make a new tradition…or maybe just head up to SLO on my bday weekend. :)

  706. elz says:

Yum!! Hope you’ve had an extra special celebration today!Thanks for the generous giveaway!
