Why is it that any birthday for a teenager is so important?
Statistically, it will only be a small percentage of their lives.But #2 child, #2Son, has had two birthdays that needed a lot of friends to help celebrate. In my back yard. What will next years 18th be like?
It will probably another Ben Hur epic like last weekend.
"Only a couple of friends" were supposed to be around.

I think we had a nice night.
The night before there was a quick pizza dinner with the family- without a cake.
I buggered that up! At least his grandfather and Brenda brought some cake!
Just did not think to pictoralise it nor add candles.
Epic fail I think.
But I think he enjoyed getting the guitar he got from us. And having his aunt and little cousin there too, and girlfriend L. With a call [on the speaker phone- haha] from his Big Brother back in The Big Smoke.
His mum would be proud him and of the lot of them
