Well, the birthday bash was a big success. The city of Murrieta put on another great bash this year. I did manage to be a little more like Martha Stewart(with some Rachel thrown in) by making hummus dip, cut up veggies, cupcakes (which I did not decorate like the flag, but did buy little flag picks to put in them....but didn't) and then bought fried chicken, pasta salad and pea salad. I also brought pears and brie and a case of water. We had a great time and it wasn't quite as hot this year as it has been in the past soooooo...that was even better.
The Fireworks, as always, were spectacular especially when you sit right underneath them!!
The very BEST part of the day was when the main band was playing and was about 3/4 into their set...the lead singer started talking about how he and this woman were friends and how she had come and sang with him in the past. We were all half listening when the next thing out of his mouth was "Please welcome Miss Stevie Nicks!" What? What did he just say? Stevie Nicks? In Murrieta? Needless to say I and my hubby made a beeline for the stage, camera in hand and with eyes wide and singing along to "Stop Draggin my Heart Around" I got these pics (my camera is a little slow so I got her back a lot)
I am sorry I didn't take any pics of the food, my kids or the people there. I don't know what I was thinking....but I think these were the biggest things that day.
I hope you all have a great week and I will see on Pink Saturday
