Uncle Bill gives the Blessing
Grandpa Al is surprised at the quality of this fine food. Grandma Marie demonstrates how to eat Sushi.
Our chef explains that all little girls will eat all the food on their plates - or else he will threaten them with this cleaver.
Emily and Erin watch as their dinner is being prepared
Sarah tells Uncle David that he will need to eat all his vegetables.
A little Onion Tower is being made
FIRE on the grill!
Grandpa Al explains that this is quite good dining. Joan is convinced that Dad can do all of this cooking at home on the grill in the driveway. "Not in the house!" Dad said.
Star Wars! No this is Chop Stick Wars!
Gracie takes a moment to watch the family from the sidelines.
Sarah is the oldest niece. She sets a very good example.
The Cake arrives!
The servers sing and make lots of great noises
The girls blow out the candles and now make a wish
We moved our party to Donna and Brian's house for cake.
Andrea on the swing with Baby Charlotte.
There are some mudpies being made to go with the cake. Charlotte is thrilled.
And then it is time for Cake! The "Pink Ladies" gather for the festivities.
Emily dives into her piece of cake. Grandpa Al is ready to help her with a big napkin.
It was a GREAT day and we all had a lot of fun!!!
I wonder what Aunt Joan's 100th birthday party will be like!!!
