The MANN Turns 60

Celebration time, c'mon.....

(Tom the baker's Napeequa infused cheesecake with fresh fruit compote- OMG!!!!)

Mmmmmm..... talk about a rock star surprise party!!!

Our dear friend Michael is turning 60 (shhhhhh don't tell anybody tho....) His family and friends managed to pull off one heck of surprise- citing a bbq while they were riding bikes the other day..... Michael & Anni arrived and wandered back to the back yard as Darby wasn't answering the front door..........boy was he surprised when 40+ of his friends poured out from behind ever nook & cranny in Darby's funky bohemian back yard! The weather couldn't have been more perfect, the company was riotous and the food was killer!!!!

Barb & Bob's Washington Peach pie.....

Chocolate layer cake to make you weak in the knees...

Sweet baby faces... good enough to nibble on. :)

Enjoying the sun and whimsy in the magical garden....

OMGosh- how cute is she????

Darby's backyard had so much to look at and explore- too fun!

And this Orzo salad???? Seriously- could have just grabbed a spoon the bowl and left with it- and devour with no mercy! Yellow squash, Greek Olives, tomatoes, feta, basil..... oh- man- need I say more????? YUM!!!

OH- and this smoked turkey salad? Ridiculously good!

Poached salmon rocked with shrimp lollipops & gazpacho! Their friend Kay- catering rock-star- seriously!

Party goer Dianne, could she be any more Lolita-cute????

There's oodles of pix from yesterday- but this is the quick run-down!

The host with the most....... Darby- Great home- and perfect party venue! Thanks for letting us all invade!

Happy birthday my friend- we loves ya!
