Ashley's Birthday

Happy 17th birthday to my Ashley-Girl! Her BD was on the 9th & again, I'm playing catch-up with my blog & pictures because of our crummy internet service. (And in the words of Forrest Gump.....that's all I have to say about that!)Ashley is in an Audrey Hepburn mode right now......she got a cool poster (like the one Shae has on her dorm room wall, Inger), A big book about Audrey's life & the 3 disc movie set which includes: Sabrina, Breakfast at Tiffanies & Roman Holiday. After opening presents we set out on our birthday adventures for the day. It was off to downtown Lynchburg to the Depot Grille to meet the aunts & cousins for a Girly Lunch.

The waitress was so sweet & offered to take this pic for us. L to R: Daniel, Sarah, Maw, Ashley, Amy, Aunt Linda, Aunt Vada, Cora, Alli, Kristi, Anna & Baby Milly in her seat.

After ordering our lunch, Ashley flipped the menu over & noticed that the menu was designed by Matt Tyree......he goes to church with us & plays in the worship band on Sunday mornings. He does free lance graphic design.

Outside after lunch.....

Aunt Linda & Maw talking outside the old Depot.

Loved these cool flowere pots out in front of Amazement Square! There's just a metal rod inserted in the big planter on the ground & then the other pots are just inserted onto the rod through the bottom drain holes & they automatically tip to the sides like that. Such a cool & simple thing to do.

After lunch, we just walked around a bit downtown & took some pictures......

Loved this mosaic that they were working on.....the kids thought it was awesome!
After our downtown adventures.....we had an afternoon coffee treat at Starbucks. Then it was over to Maw's to get ready for our Birthday cook-out that evening. Clay & the boys came up.....Chris & Ashley C. came over & later on...after supper, Aunt Vada, Johnny, Kristi & Cora dropped by.

My 17 year old Birthday Girl! Isn't she beautiful?!
