Happy 23rd Birthday Ashley :)

Today is my oldest daughter Ashley's 23rd Birthday.
I have no idea where the years have gone. How did my baby get to be 23?!





















I could not have asked for a more caring, independent, loving, smart and beautiful daughter.
She has become the person I wish I could be.
Love you birthday girl :)





















We have a family tradition, that when its your birthday, you get to choose where to go out for your Birthday dinner.
This year Ashley picked Wasabi. It is a sushi restaurant.
We have never been to one. We had a blast.















First there was a lesson in how to use the chopsticks ;)
I already knew how, but apparently I use them the wrong way. I say, if the food goes in your mouth, then its good enough for me.
Ashley and Heather are practicing.















 Success :)
Look at the pride on her face, teehee.
This my middle daughter Heather, another one of my treasures :)
And of course the real baby of the family, my youngest treasure, my daughter Kristy :)




















We also invite the boyfriends to join in on the celebration. This is Ashley's boyfriend Tyler.
















And of course none of this could be possible without my awesome Hubby Wayne.
Love this picture.















After supper it was back home to share some birthday cake with family.
My SIL and her hubby came by and she brought my birthday gift. And she let me open it early :)
But I will share that on my birthday :)

Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful weekend and a creative Sunday:)

Tracy :)

  13. My, what a lovely family night out and happy birthday to you and your daughter. So, how did you like the sushi? I have never tried it.
    So, which daughter is the Dragonfly Whisperer?
    You and she should start a journal and put photos of her and her little friends of nature in it. Sounds like a cool project to me. Have a great week, Connie :)

    1. Thank you Connie, I really did like the sushi. I never thought I would, but the meat is cooked so all was good :)
      I do have a camp journal, I have been re-writing it in an actual book.
      I will be sharing that on a post....maybe next week.

    1. I agree you are a great MIL, I LOVE banana cream pie. I would almost eat a whole one when I was pregnent with Kristy. And it had to be one I made, so I would be up half the night, lol.

      Happy birthday to your Son in law :)

  21. Happy Belated Birthday Ashley! Ashley is absolutely stunningly gorgeous! I think it's a happy family life that makes your daughters glow from within. Sushi yay! My favorite. I have to find a new place now that we've moved. I'm very picky and usually go to a place that I know someone else who's been there first. You didn't say what you ate though lol.

  24. Oh geez, I can't keep all your birthdays straight ;), I wished you a belated happy birthday when I should have been wishing it to Ashley. I'm doing good to remember my own...

    Looks like such a fun place to eat, but my hubby would NEVER eat there. I took him to a favorite Japanese restaurant of mine and he doesn't want to go back again. :(
