A Wedding And A Birthday!

A very busy weekend, no quilting but maybe this afternoon if I have the energy!
Oldest grandson Daniel wed his ladylove Ashlee on Friday evening in a lovely, casual poolside ceremony.
So sweetly in love, may they always be so.
My grandson is a gentleman, no mashing food on your new bride's face in spite of onlookers encouragement to do so!!
Saturday I was up early to finish prepping the backyard for the seven year old's birthday party. Friday we had done the heaviest part and I planted 56 annuals around the center garden that the birthday boy had helped me buy earlier in the week, carefully choosing the right colors!
I made an ice cream cake, topped with some of the boy's favorite Oreos, whipped cream and sprinkles of course!
Not very beautiful but he's seven years old, it included his favorite dessert choices and he loved it and that's what counts! 
 Nana and Papa brought him an Angry Birds pinata, this was obviously the party theme.
Matthew has loved the Angry Birds game since he was a toddler!
 After all the candy was gone it made a new kind of hat!
Then later outside to play with his friends, here are four of them loaded onto a groaning car, wheels rubbing on the fenders with double occupancy! We are blessed to live on a quiet little cul-de-sac where the children play, under adult supervision of course.
Finally he has a chance to drive, vroom vroom!
They had a wonderful time also riding around on bikes and scooters in the greenbelt , altogether a very successful day!
Back to quilting this week, hoping to accomplish quite a lot.

Two lovely events to share! I think the cake was perfect because it was everything he liked. That was a lot of work getting your plants done, but very nice looking.
