Happy Birthday to Jeanie!

My sister turned 18 today! (Technically yesterday according to the time, but this is my post for the 6th.) We had a nice, relaxing day which included dinner at an awesome new restaraunt called The Local Republic. Afterward Jeanie had a bunch of friends over and we had cake and cookies.

While driving home from dinner we noticed there was a dinosaur friend planted in our front yard. A plethora of pictures followed that discovery.



(check for more pictures with Jeanie's birthday dino after the break)



Homemade mocha cake with pudding filling and whipped cream frosting.
More?

People kept slowing down to see this display while we were outside.
Jeanie's boyfriend brought flowers. Hooray!

Mom and Dad are greeting the dinosaur. They're awesome.

All in all, it was a good day. Jeanie can now legally see strippers and buy big cigars. But I'm pretty sure she won't be doing those things. Now she can come to all sorts of concerts with me while we're away at school which is pretty fantastic. (In fact, that's what I got her for her birthday: concert tickets.) She's da bomb.

Tomorrow (or I guess today) we're leaving to go out to school. I can't believe summer is over. The only thing about fall I'm ready for is the weather and even that won't come until the end of October. We'll have a week of band camp next week and the week after that we're back to class. Or in Jeanie's case, starting class!

Happy Happy birthday Jeanie!
