Party Time

Saturday was finally here! My mom and I went over to my in-laws to decorate before the party. Here are a few shots after we decorated, the patio was also decorated but I forgot to take pictures. My dad was nice enough to take pictures during the party and I asked him to be sure and get food pictures - this is where we are different - no food pictures to share! We had so much food we made people take plates home with them. So on the menu was chicken enchiladas (ordered from a great little place), BBQ pork, roast beef, ham, rolls, potato salad, baked beans, mac & cheese, cole slaw, various cheeses, chips, seven layer dip, hot cheese dip, salsa, veggie tray and of course cake - two of them. I think that was all the food.
To bad it wasn't warm enough to get in the pool. We got husband this silly hat thing, I knew once he had a few drinks in him we could get him to wear it, this is his mom putting it on him.
With his favorite bottle (that's my mom in the black).
I thought the cake turned out really good and it tasted good too. He only likes the cakes from sams with the whipped icing.
Sandy looked so pretty in her purple, we had such a good time.

We had such a good time at the party, a lot of work but worth it to celebrate all his accomplishments in the Air Force.
