Scenes from the Best Open House Ever

Yesterday, friends and relatives came from far and wide to give Edward their blessings and well wishes for the years ahead. It was a beautiful day for the occasion and we enjoyed everyone's presence.

The Aunts posing with the themed tables they prepared out back for the guests. They also decorated 2 tables on the deck and pinned up shirts along the side for a very festive look.

Marianna, Paula & Mom were all champions in helping with the set-up, and my friends Cathy and Robin were so, so helpful with the clean-up. Oh, and I must never forget Sharon who scooped all that ice cream. Thanks everyone!

Living in San Diego makes me realize how wonderful a lush green lawn is!!! It looks like Edward had a real send-off into the adult world with his aunts, grandparents, family and friends present. Congrats Edward!
