July 14 marks Brian's birthday. We are told that in France there is a huge celebration (we're not entirely sure it is for him, but what the heck, we'll take the fireworks any day!) Celebrations closer to home saw him out to dinner at 3 Guys and a Stove, one of the top restaurants in the area.
There was a bigger cake, and a bigger crowd the following evening at the Cook Out, when everyone gathered to sing Happy Birthday to both Brian and our guest Frances (her day was Thursday!)
No candles... but lots of marshmallow roasting, and popcorn kernel seed spitting competition.
And what was very nearly a 21 gun salute from the potato cannons...
So happy day, Brian. And remember, He who has the Most Birthdays, WINS! Celebrate every one.
