Ice Cream Cookie Cake. Back toward the end of May, we held a little get together at the house and Charlie decided to home make an Ice Cream Cookie Cake using his special Williams-Sonoma Sandwich Cookie Pans that he secretly purchased and hid somewhere in the house. Everything in the cake was home made including the vanilla ice cream. We probably should have left it in the freezer a little bit longer but that didn’t effect the taste at all. It was delicious. The cake was very rich and super delicious. Enjoy.

Salt Lake Sunset. Today is my last day of summer before school starts up again tomorrow. It has been a fun summer with lots of fun activities and great memories. A few weeks ago while visiting some friends, we were able to watch the sunset and I was able to capture this picture with my little point-and-shoot camera. My goal is to carry my Nikon more frequently so I can take some better pictures. It was a beautiful warm summer evening and the colors were amazing.

Utah Symphony at Deer Valley. Friday night we decided to drive up to Deer Valley and see the Utah Symphony perform many fantastic pieces of music. It is part of the Deer Valley Music Festival that they hold every summer. The weather was perfect with large clouds and a cool breeze during the performance. Off in the distance you could watch the lightning storms. We brought a cooler with a few bottles of wine and a small selection of different cheeses.
These are the amazing pieces that were performed:
- Overture to Fuillaume Tell (“William Tell”) – Gioacnino Rossini
- La Primavera No. 1 from The Four Seasons – Antonio Vivaldi
- Selections for Ochestra from Porgy & Bess – George Gershwin/Bennett
- The Ride of the Valkyries from Die Walkure – Richard Wagner/Hutchenrugter
- Symphony No. 5 in C Minor – Ludwig Van Beethoven
- Finlandia – Jean Sibelius
- Kanon in D – Johann Pachelbel
- Bacchanale from Samson and Delilah
- 1812 Overture Solennelle – Piotr Ilych Tchaikovsky
There is a lot more information at the festival’s website www.deervalleymusicfestival.com or the Utah Symphony’s wesbite www.utahsymphony.org.
I managed to take a few pictures with my iPhone and this happens to be one of the best photographs that I have ever taken on my iPhone. Enjoy.

Evening Walk! I set a goal to try to walk Jake at least five times a week and for the most part I have been meeting my goal. I have been using a really cool iPhone App called Run Keeper. It uses GPS to track your exercise (walk, run, hike) and generates cool maps and graphs with your pace, speed and duration. Check out my profile at http://runkeeper.com/user/farookkhan
I took this picture before heading out on a walk and it is a little out of focus but I really like it. This was actually taken back in May but I thought I would share it.
