Saturday was husband Dave's 51st birthday, and son Benjamin's 18th birthday, we had a nice family celebration at home. Delicious hamburgers on homemade buns, still warm from the oven, sliced tomato and onion fresh from the garden to garnish, potato salad, fresh corn on the cob, and of course birthday cake and ice cream. Every year Dave and Ben want the exact same cake, chocolate cake, with chocolate frosting, covered in M&M's and served with Edy's Double Fudge Brownie Chocolate ice cream! Hmmmm - I think they might like chocolate - what do you think? Ben blew all 18 candles on his cake out with one breath, and not to be outdone, Dave, blew all 51 candles on his cake out with one breath - WOW! It took a while for the smoke to clear!!! A good time was had by all - obviously, you can tell by the pictures, it is much more fun turning 51, than 18.
An interesting fact, Dave and I used exactly four packets of candles (24 ct) between us this year, so those of you who are not mathematically challenged should easily be able to figure out how old I was in March.
