Happy Birthday!

Recently, I came across some photos from my paternal aunt's 21st birthday party.  I love looking at photos from family celebrations of the past.  Everything from what people are wearing to what food is on the table fascinates me.

The thing that caught my eye in these pictures is that my aunt's birthday celebration included not one, but TWO birthday cakes.  One has vanilla icing and the other has chocolate.  Either someone was very thoughtful about giving people an option of cake flavors, or there were a lot of people at this party.  Whatever the reason, my aunt looks pretty happy.
