Maddi’s 17th birthday

So this place

We held Maddi’s 17th birthday party here

Soooo jealous – why didn’t we think of this for our Christmas card?

It’s good to be the mayor of San Juan!

A big thanks to the Sharps for hosting the party at their home, and to the many who helped plan the surprise, along with all who came to celebrate with us.

This cake was _really_ good.  I don’t remember where we got it, but someone had connections to some fanshee-smanshee cake place.  It was easily my best birthday cake ever.
There were a few baloons:
Bethany and Rebecca also put together a little video.  I’ll upload it here once I find my firewire cable.
