J turns 21

A couple of weeks ago, we headed out to my parents place after work on a Friday to celebrate my brothers 21st. This brother is number 3 in the line of 6 kids. He doesn’t drink much, so we knew it would be a tame night. I actually didn’t take the camera, so any pics here are ones Mum took and there aren’t any of the food so it’s just people.

My parents ordered catering and we feasted on meat off the spit, salads, potato bake etc etc. Delicious comfort foods that are perfect on a cold night (and it was cold where they live!)

It was a good reason to catch up with family and we had a great time, even if he wouldn’t skull a drink like you are meant to at ALL 21st’s!

J actually left for the US with his girlfriend yesterday, so most gifts were US money. Steve and I got denominations of $10 notes and rolled some ties up that we had at home (unworn of course!) and slotted the notes inside, then placed a $10 note on top. He opened it and thanked us for the $10 and ties before realising that there was money hidden inside the box. Not sure why he thought we’d only give him a $10 note as that wouldn’t get him very far in the US!

Sorry about the quality of the pics, I got them off facebook and emailed them to myself and it made them look a bit funny!
