We just can't seem to stop celebrating birthdays. Lachlan and I (along with Lou Ann, Amy, David, Julie, Pat, Steve, and others) joined Katie Wharton (and her husband John & other friends) for Katie's August birthday celebration last night. We arrived at the Cove B & B at 6:30 for another pot luck dinner, cake & ice cream. Lachlan not only knows about blowing out the candles, of course; he is also quick to pull the candles out of the cake to lick them off.
After dinner we sat around the table and told stories, laughed, and carried on until everyone was ready to head home.
Happy Birthday Katie!
