Once your ultra cool kid reaches the age of 16 it begins to get a little more difficult to impress them . I'm sure it will begin to get a little bit easier the older they get. So when we asked Alex what he wanted for his 21st birthday we were touched that he wanted to go out for dinner with the Allenby Clan. He hasn't asked for anything else. Ironically Natasha asked for a family gathering for her 21st as well. Maybe it isn't so much the issue that they (like most young adults) are harder to impress. It would appear that our children (unlike a lot of young adults) seem to enjoy spending time with their family. I'm not sure how that happened but we will take it.
When I commissioned another cake from my friend I knew that she would do a fantastic job. I had no idea that she would come up with such a 'super' creation from the few tips I gave her regarding Alex. The fact that I chose the perfect cake designer (and that I know my boy and what he's into) was definitely proven the moment he saw his cake:
Alex - looking 'super' impressed
Happy 21st Alex :)
I love this one of our three
Natasha and her lovely boyfriend Martin
We all seem to love a good get together; I especially enjoy seeing moments like these captured:

It was a great night, full of good food and lots of laughs.
If any of you live in the local Lincolnshire area, I strongly recommend the fabulous talents of Dee at
Dee'licious & D'vine
(There is talk of SuperDry featuring this in one of their magazine publications which would be such an amazing bonus for Dee)
Andy and I made it to Paris last weekend so I will post about our Parisian adventure soon.
