Karleigh's 21st Birthday!

And so the March Birthday craziness starts. Karleigh turned 21 on Tuesday! I can't believe she is already 21. We went to dinner with Jonny and Kirstin at California Pizza Kitchen. We were totally stuffed after eating our yummy pizza and drink TONS of lemonade.
So yummy and pretty- Kiwi, Mango, Strawberry and Peach
After dinner we went back to my apartment and Karleigh opened her presents (the ones that had shown up, American Eagle is slow at shipping.)
Then we had cake. I had jokingly told Karleigh I was going to make her Kalua cupcakes but I decided I couldn't make myself spend money on alcohol so I came up with this alternative. So she still got her fancy drink when she turned 21.
Then we played our dancing and sports games on the Kinect. After letting our food and lemonade settle for a bit we had one more surprise for her....
21 shots of Dr. Pepper.
I told her I didn't think she deserved to be deprived of this tradition just because she didn't drink. I'm not sure how she did them all, especially after drinking so much lemonade, but she did. We ended the night with some Beatles' Rock Band. It was a good night. I'm so lucky to have an awesome younger sister who I get to celebrate with.
