Well today my lovely middle daughter, Karen, turned 21!!!!
I just had to do a post to celebrate it.
Laura and Emma made her a special birthday cake.
The fact the Karen is the master cake maker in this house is always a problem - cause anything we do is NEVER going to be as good as her cakes.
However, I think her two sisters did a wonderful job.
We went out to our (Dan and my) favourite place to eat in our town.
It's a really lovely hotel called The Piersland Lodge. You always get a really lovely meal and the service is always great and it just has a really nice feel to it, if you know what I mean.
It didn't disappoint - it was as usual very good :))
Here are a couple of pictures of my lovely family before our dinner.
The birthday girl
Our three beautiful girls (Laura, Emma and Karen)
Kevin (Laura's boyfriend) and the three girls. I asked Kevin if he would mind if his picture was on my blog and he said no. My kind of lad :))
Me and Danny. I don't much care for this picture but it was the best of a bad bunch :(
Laura had bought special sparklers to put on the cake instead of birthday candles - it seemed like a great idea. But,when it came to lighting them it took so long that the one that was already lit went out by the time the next one was lit.
It was a shame - it would have looked great if it had worked..
Anyway, Karen really enjoyed her day and so did the rest of us.
I love family celebrations.
