you only turn 15 once

last night we celebrated rachel's birthday. this was her year to pick a place to go out to eat with all of her family instead of having a party. she loves wings, so she picked buffalo wild wings. since tuesday is $.45 wing night, we made tuesday be the night we celebrated her birthday. :) with a family the size of ours, that saved us about $35.00 and since the month of may has seemed like it has just been draining the money out of our bank account, every penny saved helps out. we all ate wings until we were stuffed and had a great time celebrating rachel's 15th birthday.

waiting for a table
you always need a toothpick after eating wings
i think that rachel's birthday was just an excuse to go out to eat and have some fun together as a family. i don't think that we necessarily need an excuse. we can always have fun together, but memories are important and i hope that rachel remembers this time because......................

you only turns 15 once------------we love you rachel!!!!!!

Awww... Happy birthday, Rachel! 15 is a great age! I loved being 15. You feel like you are starting to fit in with the older kids, but you still have a kid's heart. I remember being so close to my girlfriends at that age. I hope she has a wonderful year filled with great memories!
