Last bits of Family Birthday Fun

My son gets married in 6 days.  That is an amazing thing to say!  Wow - it is so strange how time passes without us noticing, and when we notice, the moments are gone.

However, before he left home and moved out to prepare for his wedding,  we celebrated his 23rd birthday together!  We had a fun day.  He wanted to start the day eating breakfast at Elmo's - NOT Elmo as in Sesame Street, but Elmo is some old local guy with a diner.  Richard has been taking the kids there for breakfasts for years. Here is a little taste of homegrown Carroll County fun:


Nothing at Elmo's is fresh other than the eggs and probably the bacon, etc. -no fruit, no smoothies, no fancy coffee or hot chocolate drinks.  All utensils and dinnerware are plastic and Styrofoam.  It's a fun flavor of our area - and a great memory.

Other festivities included opening presents, eating CRABS and having cake.  Well, Mint Brownies.  Hmm.... lots of celebrating around food.... wow.  Weird.  Anyway....

Brittney loves Ninja Turtles.  Les got him a shirt to celebrate that.

Lots of fun "gamer" stuff from his B. (Aka Brittney)

And now.....  Sigh.


  1. Sigh is right. Makes me teary. Why do these darn kids have to grow up??

  2. We were Elmo's regulars for many years. Glad to see they haven't changed. Did you know they filmed a scene from "Guarding Tess" there?
    Happy Birthday to Brian. We'll see you in a couple of weeks

  3. so fun!!! I hope one day we can take a trip to see you guys


A little note from you? Thanks!
