Grace’s Birthday Backyard BBQ

Grace finally turned 21. The rest of us have been eagerly waiting for the final family member to be recognized as an adult by the government.  (We’ve all known her as a responsible adult since she was 15).  Ryan and I hosted a bbq to celebrate with friends and many of the kids she babysits. The kids brought cards they had made for her and I think they enjoyed her birthday balloons more than she did.


She isn’t normally terrifying to children…
