My Birthday Party

For my 18th birthday, my parents allowed me to invite some of my friends over for supper and a bonfire. Since we had been clearing some of our land we had plenty of wood and I thought a bonfire would be perfect. My mom made her wonderful taco soup for supper and then we all went outside to light the fire. The temp outside was rather chilly, so we all stood around the fire and chatted. Most of the pictures we took by the fire ended up really dark and I could only fix one.

A gorgeous clip that was given to me.

I'm sorry I don't have more pictures, but we just didn't get a chance to take more. I had a great birthday and though I don't feel much older, I do know that new challenges and experiences lay around the corner. I can't wait! =)
