Celebrate Good Times

Today was the perfect Muffin Tin Monday Theme:
CELEBRATE!!!
Hmmmm ... that's all we've been doing for the last few days, so why not one more?
Our Muffin Tin consisted of a Cake (bologna sandwich), Party Blower (string cheese), Presents (graham crackers and frosting), Party Hats (fruit leather), Balloons (grapes) and an edible Pinata!
Let the good times keep on rolling!
So, what have we been celebrating? Okay ... Yes, you all know because that is all I have talked about for a few days ...
Bert turned 40!!!
The party started Friday Night when his band played at the park for a few of our friends and family members.

It was all about the dancing ... young and old came together on the dance floor!


Of course, what great party is complete without some sort of water fight ... even if the water is frozen? A snowball fight in July ... pretty fun stuff! So glad we rented that sno-cone machine!


Saturday we made sure we livened up our quiet little neighborhood!


Then we went out for some yummy Mexican ... and Bert got a birthday sopapilla!


Of course, I couldn't leave it at that ... he needed a cake! So Sunday I whipped up a yummy cake and raided my cupboards for 40 candles.


We had a lovely dinner at his mom's and sang Happy Birthday, yet again! I hope all this attention doesn't go to his head!

Anyhow, it was a fabulous birthday for Bert ...
but you only turn 40 once! (Right?)
So, why not party like it's 1999?

It's all downhill from here Bert! LOL! I should know...I'm 44! Happy birthday! Loved the cake. I see you lit it outside where it could do the least damage when it was lit :)
