a good time was had by all

We had a lovely evening yesterday, celebrating Christopher's 18th birthday. Here he is with Dylan who always contrives to be in the photo somehow. Chris is not a fan of having his picture taken as you can see. At least his hands aren't in front of his face and he's not diving under the table, a tactic he used in younger years.

The food was all good and we did indeed have both steaks and brats, per Chris' request. Very little left over, too, which surprised me a bit.

And then on to the presents. Chris got the MP3 player he wanted, among other very nice things.

Here's the red velvet cake. If you knew Chris you'd think the candles fit his personality to a T.

And blowing out the candles, of course.

We had a very nice evening, perfect weather, and Chris was pleased with the celebration.

Hope you've all had a lovely Saturday and Sunday.

Sounds like a wonderful birthday party. What is a red velvet cake? Sounds very intriguing?
