Birthday Party


Today was my 65th birthday and the kids arranged a surprise party that actually was a surprise. I only figured it out when the first car drove in.
There were about 20 people here, mostly family. It was nice because this year my birthday fell on Father's Day so it was a double celebration. They brought an ice cream cake decorated with a quilt design. They know what I like!



This is Reve helping me blow out the candles. Luckily there weren't 65 or the cake would have melted.

Well happy birthday fellow Gemini! Love the cake! And well done on finishing your patch quilt. It will be a bugger to quilt, but at least you have a frame!

Happy belated Birthday wishes to you, Joyce! Sounds like a pretty terrific day for your whole family to spend together...honoring the two that made it all happen!

Happy birthday! (Belatedly -- I've been out of town and just saw this post.) Hope it was fun, sure looks like it. :)

Ice cream cakes are my favorite, but a quilt on top is just, well, icing on the cake!

Happy 65th! A little less than two years for me. Haven't been quilting much--too busy hiking.
