Sweet 16

My baby, Drama Queen, turned 16 today. It just doesn't seem possible. She had a small party on Saturday for a few friends and then asked if the three of us could go to Olive Garden for dinner tonight. I loaded my pictures backwards, so we start with dessert!

Zeppoli (holy cow, it was so good!)

DQ had spaghetti

The Dude had Pork Milanese

I had the Mixed Grill with Tuscan potatoes

Pink roses for her birthday

The birthday girl

Finally talked, well, texted with, the college kid tonight. She got home from her orientation trip and had a lot of fun. She was, however, quite happy to be sleeping inside a building in a real bed. And she gobbled down some Spaghettios and hot dogs when she got there. That's my girl!
