Saturday evening we had a taco bar party at J's mom's house in her hometown. A few of J's friends from high school + J's work friends + our regular crew came to celebrate.
I asked J if I could do a little decorating in the backyard. I brought flowers, a birthday banner, mason jars of candy, Scrabble pieces, mustache cups, and I made frozen grape kabobs.
The night was fun! We all sat on the patio nursing cold beers until dusk. Before dinner, we watched J swing at the piñata, which had lots of candy and cash inside. We spent the rest of the evening eating tacos, homemade queso, and grape kabobs. Everyone was so full from J's mom's delicious dinner that we didn't even open J's cookie cake. After dinner we all went to a friend's and drank beers and played volleyball in the backyard.
Here's a little peek into the party...
