What We Did This Weekend - Birthday Party Edition

Well, after this weekend I have to say that I am feeling that extra year. I'm TIRED! Still.

About 30 people showed up at the backyard birthday extravaganza. I had to postpone it until Sunday night because Saturday was so very rainy and gloomy. It was still threatening, so we put up umbrellas and a tent/tarp thing.....but it didn't rain a drop!

The grill smokes with juicy cheeseburger goodness!

The girls took advantage of the distracted adults and thieved a box of donut holes - devouring all but one of them in the matter of about 6.5 seconds. The sugar rush lasted quite late into the night, culminated in Sophie breakdancing.....but that's another picture.

This is my co-worker Daniel. He's small, but he can eat. He should probably do it professionally.

And this is co-worker Daniel later on in the night after many beers. He should probably NOT drink professionally.

Neighbor Natalie, Ex-Roommate Kristy and her girlfriend Stephanie, and Siera sitting in a super tiny chair.

Crazy PJ dancing. Things are starting to really get going.

Sophie breakdances to "Mamma Mia" by ABBA. Yep, it's possible. Not pretty, but possible.

The night is winding down.......the breakdancing is no longer happening....Siera is sinking lower and lower into the kiddie chair.........

So low, in fact, that she is mistaken for a couch by Roxy the dog.

And, so goes Shari's 34th birthday party. It was a good one.

Oh I'm so glad it went well, even if it did look like it was going to rain.

I wish I were there...I totally could have helped Daniel with the drinking. I'm a champ.

Looks like a blast!

And I'm bigging it up for Daniel - being a lightweight is a wonderful and inexpensive way to live your life...

Ha! Great party, but it would not have been great without the family dog doing something stupid and goofy funny.

Did you get the Maserati I sent?

Wow. Looks like great fun! Many happy returns.

It looks like you had a great party! Sorry we missed it!

I wish all of you could have been there. A blogger reunion should be in the cards, don't you think?

Kingfisher? The Maserati isn't here yet? Can you get me a tracking number or something?

Happy belated birthday! That party looked like fun.

If you need me, I'll be looking around for how to be a professional drinker...
