His first birthday cake was made by Mommy and Grandma. A big number one. He didn't know quite what to do with this. Finally he put his tiny finger into the frosting and then promptly into his mouth. Yum..."My Mom makes good cakes"...he seemed to say....and Grandma did an outstanding job on the decorating.
We were filled with all kinds of delicious snacks, by the time we were to eat the "real food." The hit of the party food was a hot jalapeno dip served with toasted french bread. This was gone almost as soon as it hit the table. Daddy worked the grill...making delicious burgers with his specialty hot cheese on top, brats, and hotdogs. There were so many guests...he cooked for a long time. Potato salad, pasta salad, and other sides, but no beans! Where were Grandpa Mark's famous baked beans???
It was a great party...we were all refreshed by a shower later in the afternoon and it cooled off. So, Happy Birthday little Luke...thanks for inviting us.
