Party Fun For DD1



Last month my son-in-law threw a party for my daughter's birthday. The party wasn't a surprise but some of the food was as well as two of the guests. You can see all of that in the above animated file.

The friend, Keith, in the blue shirt came from Boston to DJ the party. He was Jenn's first roommate.

The woman holding the pizza (Sue) is my sister and Jenn's godmother - she, too, came from Boston for the big event. And Sue brought the pizza (peetzer) on the plane from Bianchi's in Revere, MA!

I took these images in burst mode; from the moment I saw them I just knew they had to be animated - such fun!

As was the party.  Nice work, Matt!!!

Leftovers - 2013-200

Hooray - 200 down, 165 to go!! Not the most exciting image for 200, but just had to share.

This Tofu Kimchi dish was delicious, hot, and spicy; took Wendy to Seoul Kitchen in Tucson as belated birthday dinner before attending a concert @ Tucson Botanical Gardens last night.

I ate more than half last night and just finished it for lunch - must go back for more, very soon!

Monday morning update: just after dark we got a little rain, it sprinkled for a bit, then a few minutes of real rain - can't wait for more, and certainly the wildfire areas need it.
