Another birthday ..

You know you're getting old when your youngest child turns 23.  Today was my YD's birthday.  We began the weekend with a BBQ and then today had a family dinner and dessert at home.

First the BBQ .. lots of friends from college and high school.  and family too.  All were there except for my OD who is in Los Angeles ..

YD and some of her college buddies - and Mikey!


The chef ..

The proud papa!

The proud brother ..

The girls catching up and eating ..

Playing cranium .. (cousin, OS's girlfriend, OS, and MS)

Grandpa joining in on the birthday shot toast .. 

and then today at home for the birthday dinner and cake

The "cake" -- recipe from here.

All in all a good day though I had trouble finding the chicken wings for her dinner and then when I did, I didn't buy enough.  The dessert was delicious and really easy to make.

Every single member of your family is adorable, especially the birthday girl. I hope she had a wonderful time.

I know the feeling. My youngest will turn 23 in April. Ironically my youngest provided our first grandchild 3 years ago. We've had another since. The grandchildren is what really puts things in perspective.
Congratulations on such a lovely family.
