Aaron’s nineteenth birthday is today, but we celebrated yesterday with a trip to Morehead State University to watch him march with The World’s Most Dangerous Drumline, then dinner at my mom’s house in Lexington. It was a beautiful day for a football game and this was the first time we’d seen the band’s full show – it was spectacular!
My step-father, Greg, had made a pot of chili, which was delicious! If I can get him to share his recipe I’ll post it. Later we were lucky enough to have my Aunt Beverly’s Red Velvet Cake (Aaron’s favorite).
I hadn’t looked carefully at the candles I’d bought, though, and it turned out they were the kind that throw sparks and are extremely difficult to blow out. The up side is I actually got several good pictures of Aaron blowing out his candles – maybe I’ll start buying that kind for every birthday!
