The birthday girl...

Is it possible my baby turned 21 today??

It must be so because that's what the candles say!
Wasn't it just yesterday that she looked like the cake topper photos??

...and wore fancy red sunglasses at her birthday party?
Tonight we made a special trip into Boston to visit both girls and to celebrate Court's 21st birthday! Here are the girls at the lovely little Italian restaurant we dined at.
When we got back to Court's apartment after dinner, her roommates presented her with a bright pink birthday crown and had decorated the apartment, including Court's bed, with streamers!
And then it was time for the carrot cake (Courtney's favorite!)....
... which thankfully survived the car trip into Boston despite numerous potholes and flood detours! We were treated to an incredible day - sunny and in the mid 60's - heaven after all the gray, rainy days we've had lately!!!! Happy birthday, honey!!!
Love Mumsy

Time sure does fly by doesn't it? Why if you asked me I would have to say there is no way you look old enough to have two grown daughters. Are you sure they are not your sisters!

That cake sure does look and sound wonderful!

How sweet of her roomies to decorate and make her day special for her.

Isn't that sweet Donna! Happy Birthday to your baby. 21 feels like such a milestone.

Glad you all had a wonderful evening. Talk about great weather! Wow! Too bad next week isn't looking as good.
