Last Saturday night our family all met at a Mexican restaurant in Tulsa called Ri*cardo's to celebrate Benny's birthday. I just spent 45 minutes downloading pictures of everyone and then all I ended up with is this first one so I'll just "tell" about all who were there instead of showing the pictures :o( I am still having all kinds of trouble with Blogger!

Benny with the Mexican sombrero at the end of dinner!!
His birthday "cakes" were 3 plates of mini-sized sopapillas covered with powdered sugar and "1" candle in the one placed in front of him!!
Saved me from making the birthday cake :o)
I did present him with a loaf of Amish Cinnamon Bread to take home!!!

Present were: Mickey & I - Jacque & Benny - Benny's son, Josh & daughter-in-law and little 2 year old grandson - Dave & Suzette - Marc, Oksana & Aric and Marc's friend, Deann. We had a grand time and the food was delicious. Mickey & I hadn't eaten here in several years. It was where Benny chose to have the dinner. The birthday person always picks where we go!!!

It seems I do have a problem after all. My older photo's are missing and I can't the photo's on other blogs.

Good to be with family.
I will have to go read about that 'cake' do not know anything about Mexican food other that that chillies are involved.
