Happy Birthday Leah Barbara!

We celebrated my niece's birthday yesterday evening.  It is actually on the 26th of May, however, she was leaving for a music festival this morning at 3 a.m.  It takes place in Southern Illinois, it is all weekend and it's filled with music, kids, tents and bands of all sorts.  People I never heard of....go figure.  She will have a great time.

Anyway, we celebrated Leah turning 19 with a cookout.  It was a gorgeous evening to be outside.
Blowing out her candle!
 Leah with her brother Jake (fake smile)~ Leah's hair is so long.  She is waiting for her cousin Jessie to grow her hair a bit more and they are both having it cut and donating it to Locks of Love!
 This cake holder rotates as it plays Happy Birthday!  It's my mom's and she said it belonged to her Mom.  We figured last night it is about 80 years old.  It's a family tradition to use this for birthday cakes.
Phil is rarely without his iPad.
Granny enjoyed the evening with all of us too!

Happy Birthday sweet Leah!   Hope your 19th year is full of fun times, good friends, family time, and adventures.  Be safe!

Love, Aunt Barb
