Birthday Happy Hour

On Tuesday we had our very first happy hour of this winter season here at Peace River.    And what better a reason than to celebrate with friends!

Tuesday April 9th - in addition to being  our granddaughter's birthday was also  that of our good friend Nick.  

So we invited our friends, their friends and our mutual friends to help him celebrate!
If you look around the park here in Peace River, it really looks very empty.  But about 26 of us got together for a fun evening.   I made a huge batch of sloppy joes and everyone brought a dish to pass.   We had cole slaw, a pasta dish, potato salad, macaroni/tuna salad, fresh toss salad, corn/corn on the cob, deviled eggs, bread/spinach dip,  ham and pepperoni roll-ups, stuffed celery, crackers and cheese,  watermelon, cheese cake and a whip cream birthday cake!    You can see everyone lined up below making their way to the food table!

 Close up and personal.....................Our friends are pictured below:  The only picture I missed was Harley and Pam............ Below are Jim and Bev, Tonyia and the birthday boy, Nick, John and Rosa and Theresa ( Todd was working tonight!)

Continuing on......... Joe, George and Barbara, Skip and Dianna, Elenor and Joe.  Skip and Dianna and Barbara (along with Tonyia) are my Pokeno buddies.    We'll be playing tomorrow since Barbara and George will be leaving.  We also learned tonight that George and Barbara recently celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary!  Congrats!

Below are Buddy and Diane, Bill and Ginny, Janet and Archi (center trying to confuse me) with Art and Hedy.  We should have put Hedy's name on the cake.  We learned tonight that her birthday was April 10th.  We won't forget next year!

And yes....that's Miss Ava.  Mom and Dad (Nate and Krystal) are still visiting with family in Virginia - so Ava is spending her third week with us.  I think she's been here long enough to call her our own........  We are really enjoying her!
