We were home for just a few days when we took off again to head out to Orcas Island for some glamping off the coast of Washington.
Home again for 3 days, then off to do some RV camping around Oregon. We went east to the mountains, west to the coast again and then south to Crater Lake, look how BLUE that water is!!!
We weren’t done yet though! We got home and then went to visit my parents in Orange County, CA.

My little guys did a week of sailing camp and had the best time!! We have been on the go and had the BEST summer ever but I will absolutely admit that we’re all EXHAUSTED!!! We can’t wait for these guys to get back into school and a routine. We’re so close to fall and the cooler temps, beautiful leaves, football and all things pumpkin!!! I was dreaming of what’s coming and couldn’t wait any longer. I just had to bake up a pumpkin treat. So I decided to make a CREAM CHEESE FILLED PUMPKIN BUNDT CAKE!
Let me tell you it was the right decision!!!! My house smelled amazing as it baked. All the delicious spices of fall really got me in a great mood. I love that this cake is filled with cheesecake because, why wouldn’t I? Cheesecake is amazing and so is pumpkin cake. I love our Carrot Cake Muffins with cream cheese filling and also or Pumpkin Scones with Cream Cheese Icing so I knew this was going to be awesome! I was right! This cake is really simple to make but will totally impress your family and friends when you slice it ope to reveal the cream cheese filling. Hurry up and give this cake a try and I guarantee that you’ll be making it over and over this fall!
