Stacia turned 16 on the 16th! That hardly seems possible! But there you have it! Our baby is 16.
When we began to talk to select a date to celebrate August's birthdays (Stacia's) and family get together we realized, CyRi was going to be out of town Stacia's birthday week, the week before and the week of the wedding were full, and BreZaak had company the first weekend. Stacia opted not to have a big family dinner. CyRi's wedding will check the family celebration box quite well. We planned to go out for a birthday dinner at the location of her choice and then do gifts and cake here at home.
As we began to execute the plan, various ones called to see what we were doing and ask to join us...turned out to be great fun at Sakura Sushis - a wonderful Japanese restaurant in the Valley.

Benny was the official birthday helper. Weather help was needed with candles, clothing or gift transporting - he was johnny on the spot.
Happy Birthday sweet girl. You truly bless us all - we couldn't think of a better caboose to this crazy family train.
