My boy is eighteen.

Anyone noticing a particular theme in this guy's life, by any chance? 

Friends, family, food and fellowship. Hey, I love alliteration. Especially when it's all true.

Special friends too.... Lest anyone think the USA is the only place the boys visited and loved, they both appeared at the barbecue last night in these t-shirts.

Yes, yes, yes, we all know you guys were on holiday.
Yes, we know you have a wonderful time.... but do you have to keep rubbing it in!

(Don't you love the decor in the background. Ahem.)

 One day, I'm gonna steal this wee fella...

 ...and these two.

 When the puddings came out, 

 the young folks were much too polite, it seems.

Not so, the adults!

 This pair got out for the day.

I could say so much more. So very, very much more, but safe to say, they're back where they belong today.

 Lots of fun and singing around the campfire eventually became too much....

for some folks!


  1. looks like fun!!!!!! loved the cake!

  2. That looks like it was a great party!

  3. Wow! What a wonderful time you had. I like partying your way!

  4. Happy Birthday DR!
    Anne- the pudding looks delicious.What is the thing with the meringue? It looks so good I could lick the computer screen! Can you send me one? It's funny to see your pictures with people under blankets and with long sleeves. It was 105 degrees here yesterday! That's very unusual here, but it seems the weather is getting more extreme each year. It's hard to take care of livestock in these extremes. We have chickens just keeling over and dying. I pray for relief.
    Would you believe I'm catering an outdoor party today and it's supposed to be 103? I was hoping they'd bring the party inside, but there are too many people. I think I'd have enjoyed the temperatures at your party much more.

  5. Wow what a spread of food! I was ready to dive in! And were those Pavlovas? All those folks (the men must have all been in the barn - ha-ha) all gathered to wish your young man (can't call him a boy any longer) a happy 18th. It looks like it was a great time!!

  6. Looks like you had a wonderful time! (What are you doing in October - we have an 18th and a 19th birthday to celebrate?) I just wish you didn't live so far away :-( Hx

  7. Hope the birthday boy...er...adult had a great day! Looks like a great time -- and, I really like that cake!

  8. That looks like it was an amazing celebration! Happy Birthday to DR!
