Celebrating with Family and Friends

It is Line's Birthday today...a BIG is!
It is her 18th birthday...her 'legal' birthday, as Grammy would say. 

I suspect her celebration here was quite different than what she would have had at home...but pretty typical for us...

Line chose the menu for our family dinner.  She requested
Pork Chops
Baked Potatoes
Grilled Asparagus
Line's Host Dad, the Grill Chef.

Line's Host Mom, responsible for Mise en place

Here is the Birthday Girl with her Host Grandma and Host Aunt, the dinner guests.
Friends arrived for cupcakes and conversation.
And they did not arrive empty handed...
I guess everyone knows that Line loves Chocolate!
Happy Birthday, Line.
Best wishes for many more!
