Happy Birthday, Ashley!!

Today I just wanna wish my daughter Ashley, a very happy 23rd birthday. She's the one on the right in the photo (below) alongside her smiling siblings, Ian and Stacy. The Wells Trio were in attendance at their cousins wedding in Charlotte, NC on Saturday, and actually managed to stand for a rare photo together. I didn't go since it was on the former in-law side of things, but from all reports things went off without much of a hitch (other than the nuptuals, of course). There was the whole three hour late cake thing to contend with, but for a measly $700 dollars, what could you expect from the caterer anyway?

Ashley usually marches to the beat of her own unique drummer, so as soon as I got home from work today, we grabbed some munchies of choice for an impromptu picknick at a nearby park. That's what she wanted to do, and fortunately the autumn winds died down, and it ended up being a pleasant & sunny day with the kids and Ashley's friend, Brandon.  Later in the evening,  Ian's lovely girlfriend, Kait stopped by the hacienda, and we all closed out the day snacking on pizza, strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese icing; plus I nicely ceded over the TV from videogames, to her personal channel selection, Food TV.
A relaxing day for sure, and another successful year for this years double graduate. Now, who wants to help clean up the mess (?) Guys? Um, where did everybody go?

Nice-looking family you have there, Chuck, and happy belated 23rd birthday to Ashley.

I also had a 23rd birthday, forty-one years ago!

Thanks, Pappy! I had one of those myself a while back ... sigh.
