Good morning, peeps!
So, today is my brother Lukey’s 30th birthday. The last of the Young children to hit the big 3-0. Kinda crazy, eh?
We celebrated Luke’s birthday a little early this year, with a family dinner on September 2nd at his house. They made homemade Chinese food, which I’m still drooling over…soooooo good! My mom made one of her famous chocolate cakes. We chatted and the kids played and it was just a really nice evening spent with some of the people I love best.
My SIL Amanda is an amazing photographer, but her battery was outta juice that night, so I took on the role as photographer for the evening. Here’s a look at Luke’s 30th birthday celebration…
This pic makes me giggle. I still haven't quite figured out how to use my camera in some lighting situations, and with the low lighting in their house, I found it just easier to shoot in auto mode, thus the flash was coming on. Neve was not a fan of my flash, though – she would pose, smile, say cheese, and just automatically close her eyes. every.single.time. Apparently Luke decided to do the same in this pic…Like father, like daughter! haha!

Beautiful blue eyed girl :)
Keeping the kids out of the cake before suppertime was a bit tricky. Even Caden had a hard time staying away!
When you turn 30, you pass blowing out candles on to the little people…

Luke wasn’t a big fan of me bringing him the “birthday attire” that Aunt Marion gave me to wear on my birthday. However, when Neve asked nicely, he finally put it on for a few pictures. Doesn’t he look snazzy?! ;)
Happy 30th, bro!! Hope you have the best year yet!!!
