For the party, my mom fixed a bunch of mexican food. My favorite. Then my sister made margaritas. I think the best touch was my dad insisted on ordering an ice cream cake for us. That was my favorite kind of cake as a kid.
It was dad's choice to have the color scheme and the wording.
It was nice to just hang out with friends that I hadn't seen in a while. It was a wide variety of friends. My oldest friend came in from Maryland. We've been friends since 7th and 8th grade. My future sister in law came and a couple of other friends. One of my former youth was there. I met her right before her senior year of high school and now she's a junior in college. She's become one of my really close friends.
My sister had purchased canvases for all of us to paint. I wish I had taken pictures of all of them. They turned out so cute. I do have a picture of mine.
