Happy Birthday Tessa

While at the beach we were able to celebrate Tessa's 17th birthday!

It's not often you get to celebrate with 55 of your closest relatives.

The day started out with our traditional run through the crepe paper on the door event!
She opted to eat her birthday breakfast upstairs and not in bed this year.  We had french toast - her favorite and watermelon!

We had a fun family day hiking and visiting Tillamook Cheese Factory.  I made her favorite birthday cake for dessert - Raspberry Cream Cake.

Clark also organized the world's largest spanking machine - not really but there were a lot of people!!

Tessa is looking a little nervous at so many people!

Clark was first in line!!

Everyone was gentle.  Some of them even ran around to the back to get in line again!!
Sweet brother Clark came around to the end to get another swat and give her a nice hug!
She opened her present (only one because she is saving money for a trip to NYC with DECA over the holidays).  I bought a vintage inspired dress at a shop at the beach that looked just like Tessa.  Thanks to Tricia and Jayna for finding it!

Happy Birthday Sweet Baby Girl!!
