But Fort Scott, as well as towns and cities across Kansas, are celebrating our state's 150th Birthday -- for on January 29, 1861, Kansas became the 34th State to enter the Union.
And what better way to celebrate a Sesquicentennial than with a cake -- and no ordinary cake. It's the work of famed cake artist Rebecca Sutterby of Sugar Creations. And it is truly a work of art!!!
We had a grand birthday party for Kansas today -- and although neither Husband Jim nor myself are Kansans by birth, our roots do go deep into Kansas. My ancestors arrived in Kansas long before she celebrated her 10th birthday and actually lived not far from where we do today.
The party was held at the Fort Scott National Historic Site -- and it was great to hear the crowd sing the State Song of Kansas -- Home on the Range before the birthday cake was cut and the celebration began!!!!
I must admit that although I'm not a Kansan by birth, Kansas is my favorite state. I'm joining Laurie at Bargain Hunting With Laurie for A Few of My Favorite Things Saturday
Happy Birthday to Kansas. Love the birthday cake. It is truly stunning. Sounds like such a fun day. Hugs, Marty
Happy Birthday to the great state of Kansas! That is a beautiful cake--befitting a beautiful state.
Awesome cake. I love the bison, sunflowers, all of it. So great that you get to join the celebration of the wonderful state of Kansas. Thanks for sharing. Ginger
Today was record breaking weather on the prairie. Quite fitting for a 150th Birthday, I'd say! Thanks for posting this joyous celebration!
I AM a Kansan by birth! Three of our grandchildren live in McPherson. One told us he had a birthday party at school! Happy Birthday to a wonderful state with the most gorgeous sunsets and friendly people we have ever known.
Now that is some cake! I enlarged the photo, so I could see it better. The details are incredible. She really is an artist. Happy Birthday to Kansas! thanks so much for linking this post to Favorite Things. (I also enjoyed reading your thoughts about your love for your State). laurie
