Every August, we three celebrate our birthdays together with one "triple birthday" party.
(I can't even remember when we started this tradition, but here are some of our past parties: 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015)
But this year, the party grew...
and even though Ron had already had a BIG party
and even though Owen had celebrated his 10th birthday with a party at his house the day before,
we had decided that this year we'd celebrate ALL of the August birthdays together!
So this year, these three gents joined the three ladies and we partied!
Because it fell right on the heels of Ron's party, and it was the day after Owen's party, and August is a busy month around here, we kept this one simple. (Sometimes, simple is best, don't you think?) Ron grilled hamburgers and hot dogs and we had some easy sides.
I used some napkins that I have had in my stash (yes, I have a napkin stash) for several years. I love them, but hadn't had just the right occasion to use them. They are a design of folk artist Jane Wooster Scott and they are very summery and fun.
|The details don't show up well in this fuzzy photo, but you can get a better look here at Wooster Scott's site.|
Of course, we had plenty of desserts. Nora (7) made brownies and I made a cheesecake per Ryan's request. And then there was the birthday cake. It was not simple. Mom made it and it was a show stopper!
It was a grand time!
Birthday x 6!
