Landon's 20th Birthday

It's hard to believe that Landon, my very first baby, turned 20 this year.  We celebrated his birthday a day late, since he was coming home for spring break on March 1 anyway.  It was hard to choose a gift for him this year, since he's able to buy almost anything for himself.

We started with dinner at Ayuttaya Thai, a place we'd always wanted to try but never have.  It was awesome.  Landon really loved it an can't wait to go back.

When we got home again, Landon opened his gifts.  Carys made him a card as she does for everyone.

He also had his Valentine candy to open, since I didn't mail it this year!

 He asked for an Amazon gift card which we provided. :)  Then it was time to open his main gift.

He has loved the Marshall Cavendish World War II encyclopedias since he was 11 or 12.  The librarians at the Beverly Hills library used to crack up when he checked them out repeatedly.  Unfortunately, the Marion County library does not let you check these out.  Landon tried over his Christmas break, so we bought him a used set.

Of course, he requested strawberry shortcake, which I make on my homemade angel food cake.  Carys insisted on a picture of the cake!

Happy belated bday. It does get harder to find gifts as they get older

So fun to see Landon home and celebrating with the family.
